Dipping a toe in the Sony Pool
That being said, I have been intrigued with the Sony’s full frame mirrorless cameras since they first came to market. The high dynamic range and comparatively ridiculous number of megapixels was enough to make anyone look. Sony’s lack of native lenses, the short battery life, and the not-so-great autofocus kept me on the sidelines....until now.
I can get by with just that lens for a while if need be. That being said if the Metabones + Canon works fantastically out of the box, I may hold out in case Canon comes along with something that fits my needs better down the road. Until I see how everything works, I can’t really make an informed decision. Luckily, we have a lens rental shop nearby, so I can do some direct comparisons and insure that I won’t have remorse over getting rid of my Canon glass....if that time comes.
It can, in theory, work with my Canon lenses with an adapter with little trade off, right out of the box. The 42.4 megapixels and 5-axis image stabilization is a huge plus. While I would prefer a fully articulating LED screen, I like the fact that the LED can pop out for shots low to the ground or on a table and also be used with the camera overhead. I also appreciate the fact that it can pair with the iPhone for GPS data instead of needing to use a third party app. Also, the app allows you to take photos remotely from an iOS device, which will come in handy shooting hummingbirds in the summer.
