In a nutshell
... I use Sony gear and here's why:
- Mirrorless is the future of photography and Sony are setting the standard (a very high standard at that).
- The focussing system found within Sony cameras is like nothing else on the market and in my opinion far superior to rival brands.
- Not only can I use the selection of Sony lenses on my camera but I can also mount lenses from any other brand, making my system extremely versatile.
- Finally, the Sony community is fantastic!

Sony Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 55mm F1.8 ZA ~ “This standard prime lens with a 55mm focal length and large F1.8 maximum aperture offers stunning ZEISS Sonnar contrast and resolution for full-frame E-mount bodies.

Sony FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS ~ “In addition to an ideal zoom range for nature, sports, and other photography that requires a bit more “reach” that a mid-range zoom provides, this lens offers outstanding corner-to-corner sharpness from 70mm to 200mm in a compact, lightweight unit that is a perfect match for compact full-frame E-mount bodies like the α7 series. Being a G Lens it can also produce smooth, creamy background bokeh.”

I am something of a bag nut, I have far too many bags but never say no to acquiring another!
Manfrotto are my go-to bags, the quality is fantastic and they have a huge range for any occasion.
