Regretting my a7c purchase

a7c vs a7rIV

I was really excited when they announced the A7c and got one right off. I do not think I have taken 25 pictures with it even though I have taken it along on a half a dozen trips.

With no built in flash it is a fail for me because I take a lot of photos indoors and at restaurants, and other evening events.

The camera is smaller but frankly not really enough to make me want to grab it instead of my a7rIV and upcoming A1 and with a 24GM or 35GM it is a negligible 12-13% lighter I don't think that is even noticeable.

I thought I would use it with the tiny zoom but havn't I thought I would use it with the 35 2.8 ZA or almost identical in size Samyang 24 2.8 but like I said those are point and shoot situations for the most part for me. No flash no point and shoot and I tried it with the Sony folding 20 and frankly prefer my RX100V.

I am pretty sure I will sell it I see no reason to keep it.

If they release a 42/50or61mp with flash of course but that probably is not going to happen. Even a 24mp with flash would greatly trump the RX100.

I much prefer the additional capabilities of my rIV and almost always am using GM or Voigtlander lenses so the a7c is a no go for me.
