From A7iii to 6D!

I’m in the process of moving from a Sony A7iii to a Canon 6D.
This move has been motivated by finances as although the Sony system is absolutely fantastic, it’s extremely expensive as an ecosystem.

I simply couldn’t justify the kit that I had (A7iii, Sony 16-35, Samyang 35 and 85 1.4, Sony 50mm1.8) especially given the limited amount of time I have to shoot.
Of course I do still love photography and I thought long and hard about what direction to go in, in terms of getting a good set up while reducing costs.

I’ve shot many systems over the years and the two that stood out alongside Sony were Fuji and Canon. Fuji while great, is also a fairly expensive system in terms of lenses, so this lead me to look at Canon.

I was actually pleasantly surprised when I looked it the prices of used Canon lenses and bodies, especially Full Frame!

I had planned on purchasing a well used 5Dmkiii but then a very good condition 6D cropped up for an excellent price (18,000 shutter count for £380!) so it is now on its way.
So I’m replacing my Sony kit with the following :

Canon 6D, 17-40mm, 85mm, and Tamron 24-70mm

The above all together has cost me less than the A7iii body!

I do know that in many ways this is a big step down. The A7iii is an amazing camera both in terms of sensor and operation.

But I have owned a 6D before and I know that while basic, it’s still a very capable little camera and can produce some fantastic images.
