Awesome camera - definitely worth the switch from Canon!
April 23, 2018
I have only had it for 6 days and, as a lifelong Canon shooter, am still on the learning curve, but so far, I love what this camera can do. Perhaps the biggest surprise so far, is that my Canon glass with the MC11 adapter performs better with the Sony. Case in point is my Canon 70-200 F2.8. On my 7D, this lens only got sharp at around f4.5 in spite of tweaking the focus. With the Sony, the darn thing is now sharp at f2.8 - that's huge for me as I was getting ready to sell this lens and upgrade to the Tamron when they offer their native Sony glass.
Aside from lens performance, high ISO shots are simply amazing - even at 12,800, they are better than 1600 on my 7D - changes everything for me based on what and how I shoot. Though getting used to controls and functions will take a while, I love the customization that is possible and have already tweaked it with the controls I think I will need. Tons of videos out there on how to set it up - take the time to watch a few and it will save you tons of time. Also, don't forget to set up a control button to turn on the APS-C crop, instantly provides 50% more reach at the expense of about 30% reduction in resolution but it beats post processing cropping.
After 8 days in Sedona and the Grand Canyon, I am even more impressed. I exposed almost every shot for the highlights trusting I would be able to bring out the shadows with no noise, I was not disappointed. I have attached an example where the shadows looked black in the viewfinder.
