People who actually bought the A1, satisfied?


I've been reading quite a lot about the A1.

I have been wondering if people who actually bought an A1 are satisfied with their decission or if some have buyers remorse.

What have your expectations been and have they been fulfilled?

Did you use another camera before and how does it compare? Anything you miss compared to your old camera or anything you missed on your old camera that you now got which made it worth buying?

Has your photography improved in any aspect? What are the pictures you can take (did take) that you couldn't before because of technical limitations?

Has your workflow gotten worse because of the file size and because you're taking way too many pictures?

Pros and Cons?

Coming from A7RIII/IV:  do you enjoy the 50MP with the faster fps? is the image quality the same/better/worse?

Coming from A9/II: do you enjoy the 50MP or do you feel like it's too much? do you feel you can take pictures that you couldn't take with the A9? Are the higher MP really worth the upgrade for you?

After all: It's A ONE expensive camera
