Bye bye Canon, well not quite

May 31, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I've been off the blog for sometime but decided to start again. What prompted this was a decision to move (slowly) to Sony from Canon. And what prompted this was an impatience with Canon in bringing competitive sensors to their cameras and the bulkiness of the DSLR. The final straw was a chance to play with a friend's newly purchased Sony a7RIII, while recently working on one Hurtigruten's ships MS Fram. I tried the camera with my Canon 100-400 v2 lens and the Metabones adapter and I was impressed with many things. The rig worked for one, including the AF, on aircraft taking off from Boston Logan, and flying birds. Image quality was amazing and the 43MP would be great for printing. So a few days ago I took delivery of a Sony a7RIII and the Sony FE 100-400mm lens. For the next while I will publish my impressions of the whole experience of the move.
