  1. Hi Rob, now that I’ve sold my old 7D (sooner than I expected) I am kind of pondering whether I should leave Canon and go for something else. I see you used the full frame 7R on this nice shot. I also know you are a Canon fan ๐Ÿ˜‰ What is your experience with Sony 7R?

    1. Hi Tiberiu, let me put it this way. The Sony A7R and such are fun and exciting for the first little while. Then, once that new camera buzz wares off you start to realize your missing a lot of shots you know your Canon would have got. In my experience the auto focus is to slow and you get a lot of misses compared to Canon. I’m talking normal street photography or kids playing, the focus misses a lot. Sports, just forget about it. I was shooting my neighbour kicking a soccer ball with my A7R and Sony 70-200mm f4 OSS at f/4 and most of the shots were not in focus. With that said, if your shooting portraits and landscape stuff where people are not really moving much, then these cameras can be great. There is a awesome feature where you press a button and the auto focus will hit the persons eye! Very cool for shallow depot of field portraits.

      Sorry, I didn’t mean to write you a novel here, just want to pass on the info as best I can. I strongly recommend staying the corse with Canon, out of all the companies out there I believe they are the best in all aspects. However, if you have the extra cash laying around it’s always fun to have a few cameras kicking around and never hurts to use an A7R (or whatever one you like) as a “for fun” camera. I guess that’s it. I hope that helps.

      Good luck, Rob

      1. Hi Rob, I appreciate you taking the time to reply to my question. I think your right about the novelty stuff and so many AF misses is slightly worrying. I’ve had a few misses with my 17-40 f4 on a 7D but it is acceptable. I think I will stick with Canon since I am already comfortable using it and have a few lenses for it. It was the weight I kind of wanted to leave behind but trading that for a not so mature a system it’s probably not worth it. Thanks a lot for your feedback!
