I did notice you had a new camera and lens.

What do you think of it so far?

So far, really good. It is a bit of a learning curve though. The menu system is a bit clunky and over-facing, but the camera is really customisable, with 4 buttons, and various other controls that you can set to suite various styles of shooting. Moving from a DSLR, the electronic viewfinder took a bit of getting used to - the first time I tried it made me feel travel sick, but i am pretty much used to it now. The lens is amazing, but quite a big piece of kit (82mm filter size) though. I've had the camera out three times, and each time I find it easier - by mid May I hope it will be second nature. I also got a metabones adapter, so can use my Canon lenses for the time being, although I do plan on keeping my 7D2 for moving wildlife. One huge advantage over the Canon 5D2 and 7D2 is that the RAW files need much less processing - contrast, colour rendition etc are all far closer to what my eye sees, rather than the fairly flat images I've been used to.

I'll give an update in a couple of weeks.

Thanks Sara - sounds like you are chuffed to bits with it. Look forward to seeing you win some ribbons with this new camera soon - no pressure:)

I am such a slow learner I may just hold out for Canons future mirror-less offerings before I jump on the mirror-less band wagon. I am not in any rush as very happy with my 5D Mark III and IV

My 5D2 is approaching the possible end of life and doesn't handle low light well, which was partly the driver for change, as well as wanting a lighter camera body that fitted my hands better. I decided against the CanonR mirrorless as I wanted in camera stabilisation, and I wasn't as impressed with the electronic viewfinder and autofocus as I was with the Sony.
