    Pretty reasonable arguments, the audience was open, which certainly helps.

    What do I do with all my Nikon gear? Sell it, that's it.

    The A to E adapter, seems to be key still, he carries a minolta beer can!

    That's what i did...bodies, lenses & all!
    The only Nikon mount lens I kept was my Sigma 90mm Macro f/2.8 and also still have the Yongnuo YN-565EX flash.
    Both can still be used with the Sony A6000...Sigma via Fotodiox Pro NIK(G) to NEX Lens Adapter and Yongnuo in manual flash mode only.

    Watched this at the weekend, was interested in the reliance on the a to e adaptor. Would have been interesting to see his discussion on the transition and longer discussion about lens.

    He is why I have the A6000 and A7ii.
    My wife hates him.
    With a passion.

    His confidence can come off a bit strong...

    My guess is the A7II and A6000 is why she hates him :)
    Best regards

    TBH, I find the whole thing a bit fantasized. the reasons he gives are: Live view; size/weight; tilt screen; wifi upload; technology innovation (things like zebra, focus peaking, remote control, IS, focus magnification, EVF).

    Some of these I find very poor reasons to change from DSLR to MILC... Apart from the tilt screen, zebra, and EVF, I can do all the rest with my lowly Canon 6D. Imagine what a pro_DSLR can do? Right... Most of the so called innovation in MILCs are required in order for people to be able to use MF lenses in an efficient way (peaking, magnification). I can also use very efficiently, if I want to, MF lenses in DSLRs, just by changing the focusing screen to a split screen or similar.

    Of course to each its own, and for a photographer that does not shoot sports, combat zones, wildlife, and similar, current MILCs are more than adequate.

    I am not one to tell someone what they should or should not use.

    For me though the A6000 is quite amazing.

    These two videos show some strengths and limitations.


    The first one shows a few that are not as clear as could be, but that is to be expected.

    The second one is crisp and clear, with great results.

    Yes, I think Its a matter of light levels being more important than subject. How they would have looked if done with an A7s I don't know.
    Sony is ruling the fullframe mirrorless market for now but if they dont get some really first class glass out here they will loose not only the APS-c market but also the fullframe market. I feel their lens range is somewhat limited looking at e.g. Fuji's catalogue.
