Sony: A65 vs A7

Postby Argelius » Wed May 28, 2014 2:13 pm

I'm about 95% sure I know the answer to this question, but wanted to confirm with people smarter than me.

I now have two cameras:
[1] Sony a65 (with a telephoto, macro, and wide-angle lens), and
[2] Sony a7 (with the kit lens and the adapter for A-mount lenses).

I'm totally loving the a7 and with the adapter I can patiently wait for them to release more FE lenses.

So, at this point I see no point in keeping the a65. Everyone agree?

If you are not short of cash, I would suggest you keep A65. It's always good to have a second camera around.

I agree if you're not strapped for cash, especially if you're on your feet and shooting subjects over a vast range of distances where you can't predict if or when you'd need to change lenses.

I don't regret selling my old body when upgrading but I do now realise it would have been nice to keep hold of it to put on a wider angle lens while keeping the long telephoto on my main body.
