Converted to Sony from Nikon
It was about a year ago that I decided to sell off my Nikon DSLR gear and convert to mirrorless with a purchase of the Sony A7iv. I'm delighted with my decision and haven't looked back. That said, I've learned a few things about making change like this (both camera brand and core technology).
- First off, it's not easy selling DSLR equipment, particularly lenses, during this period when so many are converting to mirrorless. I did finally manage to sell the last of my Nikon lenses, but at a pretty steep discount. But such is life.
- Sony lenses are expensive. I've stabilized my setup with a (relatively) modest 4-lens array, three of them Sigma (the 24-70 f2.8, the 16-28 f2.8, and the 100-400 f5), but couldn't resist just one Sony lens: the FE 35mm f removed link GM.
- Sigma lenses are awesome. Sony lenses are too, of course, but it's tough to justify paying nearly twice the price.
With a year under my belt, now, I couldn't be happier with my decision to switch to Sony. I do a lot of low-light work, particularly at night, and the low-light performance of the A7iv is nothing short of stunning. I'm one happy camper.
I feel you on the discount you have to make to sell a lens! I couldn't believe the markdown to move some of the F mount gear I had.
