Re: Selling my D800E for WHAT?!?

It seems like you are the best qualified to answer this question since you have so much experience with both platforms. My only input is that you did not include the FE 55 1.8 as a prime. On the A7(r) it is THE killer lens. Better than the Otus at several openings. Absolutely astounding. Perfect candidate for low light shots at a wedding. IMHO You might wait a bit and see how the A7s works in real life though... could be the fantastic with its low light performance and silent shutter.

So here is my question:

I am contemplating selling ALL my nikon gear and in turn buying an A7, FE 24-70, FE 70-200. Is this a poor idea?

My one fear is when I do start to 1st shoot more than the AF will murder me, as I hear nothing but complaints about both the A7r's and the A7's autofocus. I get the feeling from the way people trash it than in a lower light scenario I will have next to useless AF.

What would you recommend and why?

Thank you for your time in reading this.

All the best,

LCpl. Herold
