    Almost five years ago–as a Canon user for many years–I bought a Sony A6000 after seeing the Sony equipment at their CES booth. I’m now on my fourth Sony mirrorless, an A7R III.

    About three years ago I sold off all my Canon gear–I had been sort of using both systems, plus an adapter for lenses–and have never looked back. I absolutely love my A7R III. Like everything else, once you start buying lenses–I now have four–you are kind of committed to a brand.

    I think potentially there may be a long-term advantage in the larger Z-mount that Nikon is using on their mirrorless versus the E-mount of Sony. But I don’t know enough about optics to say for sure. In the future, if both try to go to medium format sensors, the differences may become more apparent.

    DSLR users switching to mirrorless will soon like the advantages that things like the EVF, eye autofocus, etc can make to your photography.
