Switching from D700 to what??

Dear all

I wanted to start by saying I love the D700. I really don't want to move from it. However, I now have a 5 month old baby and she is heavy enough to carry about. I have the following kit which is why I am thinking of selling and moving to a mirrorless alternative:


SB600 flash

Sigma 70-200 f2.8 (OS version)

Sigma 10-15

Nikon 50mm F1.8 (latest version)

Now what I am considering is one of the following:

Sony A7 (much smaller and lighter)

Fuji X-T1 (excellent camera but NOT full frame)

What is important to me is:

  • less weight!
  • Good quality jpegs (rarely use raw conversion)
  • Quick auto focus (babies move a lot!)
  • Decent lenses (apparently I can use the NEX 10-18 on the sony which is a good WA alternative)
  • Video to a lesser degree
  • A good shooting experience (D700 controls are excellent but realise there may be some loss of functionality given the smaller cameras above)

What are your thoughts? I cannot afford to run both side by side so it will be a bit of a plunge!

Any other camera bodies I should consider?
