I stumbled into this video this morning from Jason Lanier from last November. Fascinating.
Even tho the poll we've been running in the right sidebar shows Canon still #1 among our readers, sony is tied at #2 with Panasonic.
And many of you are thinking about moving over to Sony.
As a Canon EOS 5D Mark III owner, the concerns for me are being able to use my Canon lenses. Of course that would mean buying a metabones adapter (adding cost).
Plus tho Jason says the batteries aren't an issue, if you have to buy 4 to survive, that's more additional cost than I have with my 5D3 – I own just two Canon batteries.
So what do you think? Are you switching? Does this compel you more to switch?
I will note this other article we published about the A7rII
Description from Youtube:

There are so many cameras out there in the marketplace from Nikon, Canon, Sony and others. When the Sony A7 series came out there were some inadequacies that many in the photography community pointed out for the fledgling line of cameras.
When Sony came out with the A7Rii, they answered the criticisms lobbied against them and introduced a truly game changing camera. While the camera isn't perfect (none are), it is in Jason's mind the best camera he's ever used and the best available camera for the money on the market today.
