8 Years With Sony Cameras: The Pros and Cons

When they came to the scene with the a7 series, Sony set the camera industry on fire by bringing a range of innovative designs and features and an aggressive upgrade cycle that kept the likes of Canon and Nikon on their toes. After almost a decade on the market with their full frame cameras, the company's gear is now in the hands of countless photographers. So, how do they compare to other major brands after all this time? This great video features an experienced photographer discussing his thoughts after eight years. 

Coming to you from Manny Ortiz, this interesting video discusses his thoughts after eight years with Sony camera gear. I used Sony gear for a few years and really enjoyed a lot of aspects. In particular, the dynamic range and eye autofocus were fantastic boons. On the other hand, the ergonomics were difficult for my large hands and long fingers, and I found the colors not as easy to work with. However, the reason I eventually moved back to Canon was simply for the lenses. There are some more esoteric and interesting lenses I simply could not live without. Thankfully, Canon's cameras eventually caught up in a lot of ways. Check out the video above for Ortiz' full thoughts.
