Should i leave the Sony Alpha system?
8 months ago

I would really appreciate some advice! I photograph just as a hobby, but take it reasonably seriously.

I currently have a Sony Alpha 580 and have invested in a number of excellent lenses, some of which are full frame:

I'm keen to change or upgrade my A580 and herein lies the dilemma!

I have heard a lot about the demise of the Alpha DSLR and that Sony will now focus on the new range such as the Alpha 7 and 7R.

Should i upgrade to an Sony Alpha 99

or sell all my equipment, while there is still a re-sell value (approx 5 lenses (all Carl Zeiss or Sony G range), 2 sony flash units and body) and change to

something like a Nikon D800 or

the Alpha 7/7R range and buy lenses as they become available!!

I know my current lenses will fit the 7 and 7R with an adapter, but those cameras are so small and my lenses are quite big and bulky, just dont think they will be suitable and balanced?

The 7 and 7R appeal because they are so small and will reduce so much bulk when walking around with camera equipment

Appreciate thoughts and advice
