Made the jump
9

So i decided to make the jump to mirrorless. It has been a long few weeks trying to decide. I had a D850 with lenses including the 24-70 f2.8 G, 85mm f1.4D, 50mm f1.4D, Tokina 100mm F2.8 etc. I ended up selling all my D lenses and even replaced the 85 with the G version.  Ended up getting the Z7 with 24-70 F2.8 S and 50mm f1.8 S. In the end it came down to two things that bugged me about the D850.

1. AF Fine tune - hated hated hated doing this crap. Especially with a zoom lens. It was just never perfect and i would miss focus more often than not.

2. Z mount is the future. If i dont sell my F mount stuff now all its going to do is go down in value. Better to sell it now while i can still get some money for it.

I never had an EVF before and so far I am really enjoying it. No longer do i have to Chimp and it truly is WYSIWYG. I will say that its definitely not as fast as my D850 but its not bad. I did some BIF stuff but not a ton and mostly stationary stuff, never did sports. So not sure i really care that its slower. As long as AF is accurate thats all that matters to me. So far it seems pretty accurate and thats with an adapted lens. Love the size so far. My 50mm comes in today and 24-70 comes in tomorrow, cant wait right now i am just using the adapter on my 85mm 1.4G and here is my first shot with it.
