Take a seat, this is going to be a long one. I might have to break it up into a few successive posts. I have come to a point where I am now very seriously considering going from my APS-C Sony A6000 to a full-frame Sony mirrorless camera body such as the A7 Mark II (A7ii). If it were just a matter of my own personal use of the camera as a hobby, I would be content to stick with the more affordable (both from a camera body and a lenses point of view) APS-C line of E-mount cameras. All-in-all I find that my A6000 yields more than adequate image quality for most of what I do with it. Any limitations I find in my photos has more to do with my own limitations, not always knowing how to make the best use of the available light or of the full capabilities of the camera, not any limitation of the camera itself. But I am now seriously considering - and have actually sort of started - getting some paid work in photography. And for that, I think a move to full-frame may be in order. On one level, any perceived need for a full-frame camera for “professional” or paid photography derives from the perceptions of potential clients. It seems that clients willing to pay for photography services are more likely to take a photographer seriously if that photographer has a full-frame camera, and more particularly, a bigger, DSLR-style camera. For all its positives, this the A6000 is not. But the A7, while small compared to most full-frame DSLRs, at least looks the part of a “serious” camera thanks to that viewfinder bump and the larger grip and added control dials. Were looks and size of the camera as a perceived “pro” tool all there was to it, I probably still wouldn’t be planning to make the jump to full-frame. But there are other benefits to full-frame and to the A7-series in particular, especially the Mark II line of A7 bodies.
