    This is the second video that I see where people have dropped their Pro
    gear for those New Sony’s Mirror-less Cameras!
    I am looking into it myself…. Same reasons as you described !

    Keep up the good work and I can’t wait to see what you have done with the
    new gear !

    I love my a6000 but low light autofocus is a substantial problem. I will
    probably go Nikon for shooting events that are not in sunlight. Otherwise
    I’m a6000 all the way.

    I own Canon but I love the “Image Quality” I’m getting from my a6000. I
    have not used my Canon since I got this little beast.

    I have a A6000 that I use as well as my d800. I would love to divorce
    Nikon but to replace my Nikon glass with equivalent Sony glass is going to
    cost a fortune. Second hand value of my f2.8 collection is not going to buy
    me new Sony replacements and there is hardly any second hand good Sony
    lenses around. Add to that the problem of turning up to a paid job with a
    small Sony camera when when half the guests have more expensive cameras and
    I think in the pro world Nikon and Canon are still going to be around for a
    long time.
    For anything non pro I use the A6000 almost all the time.

    A while ago on a model shoot I pulled out the A6000 for a bit of fun and
    the first thing the model said was.. Is that it???? that’s the camera
    your going to use ????

    A few months ago I attended a wedding as a guest and brought along a
    Panasonic FZ1000 for shits and giggles, Would you believe I was totally
    blown away by its AF and the fact that I had 25-400mm built in and f2.8 at
    the wide end and f4 at the long end?
    For anything except low light performance this is a another of those
    amazing cameras that is worth having a good look at.

    Hey you just do what I did do I just buy old lens that are amazing in
    taking photos and I just adapt them to me system. My favorites are a Canon
    FD lens 50mm 1.4 and a Hanimex 135mm 2.8. I just buy a 50mm lens 1.2 less
    that 200 dlls that is ridicules.

    Sehr wahr – noch mehr für Leute, die jetzt eine “Spiegelrefelx” kaufen
    wollen… Tut es nicht! Kauft eine a6000!

    Ok, I own both systems, Nikons D800, D90 and the lovely new A6000.
    all great cameras, all have there place in the real world.

    You say you sold all your Nikon pro gear and have switched solely to A6000
    with mainly CRAP Minolta glass? (3 pieces for under $100??) ok, they are
    cheap because , again, that glass is CRAP. Let me clarify, IT IS CRAP for
    PRO SHOOTING!

    I DO NOT believe you that you take the gear to shoot weddings and other pro
    jobs! are you serious?
    if you are going to need a “decent” zoom then what?? you are going to buy a
    20-700 Song G for $2800??? or did Sony give you that lens?? end of Story ,
    SONY HAS PAID YOU, don’t talk shit Mate, you are obviously a liar.

    Thanks for your Youtube mentoring and advice (and many others), after
    waiting for the right moment, I said screw the right moment and I took
    the plunge…I’m a pro photographer…but turning pro at age 48 and
    starting a new career is scary…and FUN! I am like a kid again with the
    development of my business, like every good apprentice, I will steal many
    of your ideas, techniques and hopefully develop my own unique way of adding
    to our art…BTW, I am a Canon guy but I didn’t buy the full frame like I
    had planned…I bought an A6000 and I’m getting the A7s as my full frame,
    second camera and as my video camera…. my Canon backup cameras? A T3i and
    a D20….The T3i takes awesome video but the so does the A6000! and so will
    the A7s ..

    I got rid of my D700 and all my Nikon gear and I totally agree with your
    points – coming from a big break after 35mm film, the first thing which
    struck me with Nikon DSlr was the price……

    “You want how much just to take a photograph ?”…….. the D3x was the
    price of a brand new small car…….

    Add to that the pro glass and you’re talking a small house……..

    No…. time for waking up.

    Like I said I sold all my gear and am currently camera-less, but LIKE you
    said, I have my mobile phone (Nokia do great camera phones).

    I’m waiting for the a6000 replacement, which I believe will be announced in
    the next few weeks and months.

    PS – I subscribed ;)

    Is this a genuine endorsement, or were you paid by Sony for it?

    I recently purchased an a6000 as well and I really like it, however there
    are still some things I like better about my Canon.

    i love my DSLR but I also like the Sony Nex7. My Canon 60D is a great
    camera but a bit heavy. Sony E mount system is the best. I love the ease
    of using the camera but the menu is suck.

    One thing confuses me.. You say you have adapters for all the lenses, then
    say you are selling off all your pro lenses and flashes. I don’t get it. I
    have a canon 6d and I just traded in my Canon 60d that was my backup in
    favor of an a6000. I like the 6000 but it does not replace my full frame. I
    think I would replace the 6d with an a7II but now you get back to the big
    expenses again.

    I really do love using my beautiful old pentax glass on this camera.

    I totally agree the A6000 is that damn good!, Have been a Nikon user for a
    few years now and bought myself an Sony A6000 a couple of months back since
    then have sold all my Nikon gear because it just cant compete with the
    A6000 in terms of versatility, quality, and speed. Ive found i dont even
    use the viewfinder 90% of the time it’s easier just to shoot in live view
    which i couldn’t of done with a DSLR handheld because of the shutter jolt
    at low speeds, But i can shoot 1/5 or lower with the A6000 without a tripod
    using just one hand and get razor sharp images, And the amount of
    customization is ridiculous! I would recommend the A6000 to everyone to
    try!

    This is getting too obvious with every photographer saying almost the same
    words in the same order, sony sends out the script. I am sorry man I don’t
    mean to be bashing you, and I think the A6000 is a good camera, but I
    guess the impact of these types of videos and messages are a very big way
    to increase sales. we all got to make a living.
