Looks like Trey has seen the light and getting tired of dragging two Nikon D3s around and a heavy tripod. Once some more fast glass
is available for the NEX's (aside from the Zeiss and 50 1.8 to come) the rush will be on. I think companies like Sigma will have the opportunity to
provide well made alternatives to Sony's offerings eventually. I agree with one of the posts that described the
NEXs as eventually being thought of as digital backs for lenses. The wait is on.

Quite an interesting read and he mentions a lot of good points regarding the evolution to 3rd gen cameras.

Interesting article. Thanks for the link. I imagine all the manufacturers will be courting Mr Ratcliffe to persuade him to go with their system. An endorsement (not even official but just in terms of use) from someone like him would have more impact than most advertising campaigns. I did notice in one of his replies in the comments that he mentioned waiting for the next Sony NEX. I'm sure Sony will be thrilled at the prospect.

During the Yosemite Walk video he has on Google+ he mentions the Sony Alphas specifically. It is interesting his change of position from a year ago. I agree having to haul his heavy camera, tripod etc at Yosemite has made him see the light... I have walked up from the valley to the top of the valley and it's a tough haul

One thing about Trey, he does not cater to any camera manufacturer, period. He uses what he wants to use, and if you read his article on what happened after he spent $30k on magazine advertising to
compare it with value of web blogs, he very clearly is not in anyone's pocket (most of the ads failed to return anywhere near their cost).

Trey is a very gifted photographer, artist (he paints) and world traveler who is making a good living doing what he loves best.
