    just joined up today, not even been lurking as I only found this site this morning :D

    Long story short... been an avid photographer for some years (not professional but some paid work and sold some private prints from exhibitions), was Nikon shooter D700/D800 etc, went to Fuji X system a year ago but got fed up with X-Trans issues so sold the lot this week and bought a Sony A7II, 24-70mm f4 & 55mm f 1.8 (saving for the 16-35mm)

    My only complaint so far is th user manual seems very sparse :p

    Cheers Nik

    Welcome, glad to have you.

    There are quite a few youtube videos to help you learn your new camera.

    And with an A7II to boot, nice!

    Welcome around, I am constantly astonished at how good of a community is here, I'm sure you'll find folks that will get you going, and folks to help get going (I would be on the later, most of the time)

    No legacy glass? I keep thinking on that IBIS to leverage even more from some of the excellent legacy lens.

    I don't own any legacy glass but I'm considering collecting some in the future.
