The idea of having a second body has been on my mind for quite some time. Weighing the options of practicality and my normal shooting habits, I decided to go in a slightly different direction than what I was use to. So here I am entering the mirrorless world with my lil' Sony A7ii. Since I'm just testing the waters with a non-Canon system, I've decided to adapt my current glass with a Metabones. A handful of video shoots in the past has made me comfortable doing so, but down the line it might be nice to get some native lenses.
I bought this camera strictly as a second/backup body, one to help ease the rush of event shooting, but playing with it in just the first few days I'm finding some pretty killer features. That's not to say I see it as a replacement for my 5D at all. So far it's not as quick, not as solid as my main squeeze mk iii. It's going to take a while to get use to the EVF, but always seeing what the current exposure will be is an interesting tool. The main selling point was the slim size, but with that comes a dramatic decrease in battery life. Being able to instantly send a full size file to my phone is great for quick snapshots. All in all, I'm looking forward to weaving this camera into my everyday package seamlessly.
Here's some test shots from a recent day trip up to Lake Gregory.
