Buy whatever gear that fit their needs and move on. I heard enough about people keep telling they going to switch to Nikon and Sony for the better, still, none have done so.
Talk is cheap, be a man and do it.
Yup, talk is cheap:
I don't ever just buy before I give it a real good try. But I'm not just a bag full of words, either. I intend to get a solid handle on the state of Sony raw files (and the full range of the consequences of their lossy compression) before I bite the bullet, but even if I can't work the data like I can with a Nikon RAW, it should still be worlds better than Canon data.
Renting also not cheap...
Anyway, I try out the A7R and A7S with metalbones, A7R focusing is really slow in low light and I don't like the heavy shutter... the A7s had better shutter feel and AF in low light is faster, but still not very consistent.
Enjoy the camera...
Have a nice day.
Yeah, I've heard about the shutter shock problem. Part of the reason I'm renting first. It's not all that bad, considering its some $2400 to buy the camera lone, let alone the adapter.
I'll try the A7s at some point, or whatever new cameras Sony releases next year. I particularly want to get a handle on the raw IQ, and the impact of compression. I want my RAW to be RAW...and I don't like the use of lossy compression for "raw" data. I'm hoping it isn't a huge deal, but I guess we'll see.
If you intend to shoot high ISO, then yet a7s. AF is slightly faster in darkroom(more like for me, high ISO shooter).
You seem to like high MP, stay with a7r. BTW, get 2-3 batteries.
