Re: Why Did You Buy A FF Camera?

I agree with John, for me it's familiarity with 35mm. I started out with an OM1n and 50/1.8 and after a series of unremarkable digital cameras I vowed I wouldn't buy another one with a crop sensor.

Finally, Sony proved that it's possible to build a full frame camera that's as light and compact as the OM1n, so I bought an A7 and the Zeiss 35/2.8.

I'm excited about trying out my old olympus 50/1.8 as well, as well as Leica R and Pentax PK glass.

I acknowledge that the A7 is not as complete a system camera as the OMD EM1 for example, at least presently, but for me it's like finally coming home after 20 years away.
