Any Nikon D800 users that have switched to Sony and are

please with the AF and overall performance of the Sony?  Can you give me your pros and cons?

I sold all my Nikon gear recently have been looking for a much lighter high performance camera for my travels out of the country.  I also have some Olympus gear and have had my eye on the new EM1 II but I sure would like to stay FF if the Sony performs well.

I don't do sports or birding but I'd like the AF to be fast and the shutter to be quiet for street photography since in some areas (Peru and Morocco) I've had to shoot quick and quietly.  My intimidating D800 would alert everyone within range after the first shot, and all that Nikon gear was also very heavy when hiking so it had to go.
