Sell 5D Classic with 85 1.8 for SONY a7
3 months ago

Hear me out. My job needs me to be able to take photo at times even though I don't know what I'm doing. I love my current setup but need to get some more modern gea
The lens is prime and opens up to 1.8

I'm thinking sell the 5Dc for 500 and the lens for 350 maybe less. Take 850 and put it towards the A7 which is FF and super compact and then pay the 500 dollar difference for the body. Then get a 50 mm f1.8 sony lens for 300. After saving some. All in all id spend 800 to have the a7 body and 50mm 1.8 lens.

What do you think. I do a lot of musician photography and lifestyle photography I need a better high ISO performance for sure and a fast lens for shooting daytime to night.

The a7 looks super appealing. I never thought id leave canon but this small FF affordable w HD video and the ability to one day upgrade to zeiss glass makes it tempting.

What do you guys think based on what I've said ??
