    Did you get them for free? Because if you didn't the maths is still the same.

    I got them so long ago and just sat on my desk gathering dust...it feels like I just rediscovered them again so it feels free :p

    It’s almost like “oh yeah, I forgot I had these and they are actually great!”

    I think I am likely to give up both DSLR by mirrorless, probably some of the lenses too like the Sigma 50A.

    The lists of lenses to replace…

    16-35/2.8 - This will cost me a fortune to change as my Canon isn't worth a lot, it's the mk1.
    24-70/2.8 - might not even bother because i seldom use this. Might get the Tamron 28-75 instead.
    24L mk2/1.4 - Already have Sigma FE mount on order
    100L/Macro - I can probably swap for Sony 90mm Macro like for like
    135/2.0 - Sigma 135/1.8, by all accounts a better lens
    20/1.4 - I could either sell and rebuy on FE or get the mount changed.
    35L mk2/1.4 - sad to see it go but it's a lot of money to sit in a case, already have the Zeiss replacement

    Will keep

    45/2.8 TSE - manual lens, so make no difference
    85L/1.2 - I can't bring myself to let this go just yet, until Canon make one on the RF mount

    Sounds like a sound move, the A7 III are great bodies for the money.

    Unless you desperate need 2.8 on the super wide. Get the 12-24 f4 Sony instead. Sensational lens!

    I will know 100% whether to commit (if 2 bodies and 4 lenses isn't commitment enough lol) when I have tried the Godox flashes on the dance floor.

    I am in a similar boat I have these all to change if I move over completely.

    Nikon 85mm f/1.4G
    Nikon 45mm f/2.8
    Nikon 105mm f/2.8
    Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8
    Nikon 16-35mm f/4
    Sigma 20mm f/1.4
    Sigma 50mm f/1.4
    Tamron 70-200 f/2.8

    To be fair the only one of those I really love is the 50mm Sigma Art. But they all get some use for different things.

    I am gonna have to keep some of my slr’s as things sit at the minute my missus won’t switch so that means she will be keeping her 2 x D750’s and her D850. I was going to keep my D850 and just replace both my D750’s with A7III’s but still not 100% sure.

    Sold my 35mm Nikon fit Sigma Art today loved that lens too but already replaced that with the Sony fit version.

    One thing that is always on my mind is how long will Sony keep the mount, they don't really have the history sticking with something but at least for the moment the E-mount should be around for at least 5 years and I guess that's long enough, get my money's worth from it right now and I know the DSLR gear will slowly drop in value. That's the only direction it is going.

    If I set up a Gofundme would you all contribute to me for an A7III? :D I looked at some comparisons on it last night [vs the Pany G9 in particular, which might well be my next upgrade] and I actually like the look of it. They certainly improved the grip and overall look and I imagine feel of the camera over the previous two. If they had implemented a swivel screen I don't think anyone could touch it right now.

    It's like you didn't even read my post. I said I liked the look of it BEFORE I mentioned the screen :p I own a flippy-flappy screen right now, It's growing on me, screw vloggers! BUT, if Sony had added that they'd be well stomping on the rest. You'd be surprised how well the G9 stands up to it for an M43 btw, really only lacks in ISO performance, murders the Sony when it comes to IBIS and there's nowt between them really otherwise.

    I'm not sure the Sony needs an articulating screen to be stomping at the pricepoint.

    Iso, dr, colour bit, auto focus, superb battery life, 10fps CAF, class leading ibis, best eye af. No crop 4k, 120p 1080p.

    I reckon for your needs it's more than enough tbh. I think many who use FF don't 'need' it. I didn't which is why I got over myself a long time ago , sold the D800E and went tiny sensors.

    I know women who drink pints and use Nikon D5 cameras, what's your point on that front? :rolleyes:

    They don't need it, they've already won the war! What I said was they would cement that with the FAS. Personally, since you already know, I prefer a plain old tilting style, but I'm not their target market

    A lot? Are you saving my posts or something? Is it tit time for you again? I owned it for 5yr, longer than I have owned any other camera, of course I'm not going to forget it.

    I don't know, these days if you ask the average Joe on the street what they think would be a great camera [for photography] they are more likely to say Sony or Nikon over Canon in my experience

    Honestly, without prompt, ask some people tomorrow. I would be surprised if more than half said Canon. And I have nothing against Canon, got some of their gear in baskets on various sites ... ok, I may never actually buy :D but it's being considered. I am no brand's whore unlike some numpties on here. It's all gear to me. I wouldn't buy a Nikon again if you paid me. Well, if you paid me ... then I might

    I have. The brand is strong, it's why they are no.1 without the best camera.

    I'd rather a Nikon than canon but were all different.

    You seem to be always looking for a reaction I have noticed that about you. Your hard to miss on the forum you seem to spend a lot of time on here and seem to post on every thread about every new camera so it does tend to stand out a bit. You always seem to go off on a tangent about how you used to own a D800e and how amazing M43 is.

    Not having a go so don’t take that the wrong way, I just find it funny.:D
