That's it! I'm done waiting on Canon to come out with a Mirrorless FF replacement for my 1DXII so I'm making to move to SONY.

I'm tired of traveling with all the weight of the 1DXII and the idea of buying a 2 year old 5DIV, that is not really much smaller, just doesn't sit well with me.

I'm going to try the Metabones adapter with my Canon Lenses and see how that works out. Maybe in a few years Canon will catch up to Sony, but I just can't wait any longer. : (

I just added an A7III to my Canon kit as a backup/second body... It quickly became my main body, pushing the 5DIV to the bench as the designated backup. The A7III works incredibly well with my Canon lenses using the MC-11 adapter.

I think you'll be very happy with the Sony.

I have a question; I haven't went through the entire thread so maybe you answered it. With no bias what so ever, how well does your Canon glass work? In low light especially? How close is the video auto focus to dual pixel AF?
