Re: Sony A6000 upgrade to Sony A7II

Rather than buy another crop body for my daughter, I gave her my A6K and got myself an A7II with the FE-Z 35 2.8.

I was always intending to get at least an A7 to use with my old film lenses, but decided on the A7II for the IBIS and am very happy I did. I intend to get a 28-70 for family snaps, maybe the 85 Batis down the road.

Aside from the better handling, IBIS, and the lenses yielding their true 35mm focal lengths, the A7II EVF is much better than the A6K's.  I also think the A7II jpegs are better. Less noise on high ISO pics, too.

The downside though is the slower AF for action shots and bigger heft vs the A6K, but can live with that.
