10 Reasons Why a Professional Photographer Left Nikon and Started Shooting with Sony

Check out this video from professional photographer Jason Lanier as he breaks down the 10 reasons why he stopped shooting Nikon DSLRs and mored to Sony mirrorless cameras. Jason says that he “has shot with Nikon his entire life and professional career. He switched to Sony in July 2014 (not due to a sponsorship) and hasn’t looked back since.”

Sony is obviously gaining ground on Canon and Nikon, and the Sony A7 series has made huge strides for the mirrorless camera market. What do you DSLR shooters think about Jason’s claims? Are you considering a switch to mirrorless, Sony or otherwise?

Sony Lens Roadmap Shows Full Frame Commitment

Sony Lens Roadmap 9.15.14 700

One of the few criticisms Sony’s A7 series receives is that there are not many native lenses available for the full frame cameras. Well, Sony is aiming to remedy some of that criticism by aggressively building out its full frame lens line in 2015.

In a new lens roadmap, Sony highlights its short term goal of 20 lenses in its FE line (that’s full frame E-mount lenses). I suspect we could start seeing these lenses launching as early as January 2015 at CES.
