About to get a a7R....
4 months ago

About decided to get a a7R (tomorrow) looking to hear from people with the same background as me. Been a image quality chaser since 2001, started with Point & Pray cams, but kept getting larger cams for the image quality they offered. This was at a expense, as i live a very active lifestyle, but i was willing to carry the weight of the larger cams (since image quality was better)

Used several high end P&S cams, then onto Canon DSLR (Rebel, 10,20,30,40D) then 5D, 5D2, D700, at this stage i started to struggle with weight (young, but like i said i do a lot of active stuff outdoors) Hiking coral reefs in the south pacific for days with a 5D, 17-40, 24-105 is harder than it sounds.... so ended up selling my FF canon gear and getting a 5N & a 7, but there is no going back as i realized from FF.... crop stuff is good for a lot of things, but it just inst as good, the look....

Was just refused camera bag on a trip down south to Bali with my D700, made a decision ( i think) to sell it and get a A7R with 35mm Zeiss (got loads of legacy glass i want to use also, granddad was a photographer)

Looking to hear from others coming from (or in the same) boat
