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?
