Moving to the Sony A7RII for my travel photography.

Manhattan view at sunset from the Staten Island Ferry.

This image was taken a couple of weeks ago with the Sony A7RII. I finally switched to the Sony for all my landscapes and travel photography. Most of the time I used to carry around my Nikon D810 and the Nikkor 14-24mm lens, but that was such a heavy combo. When getting the A7RII, I was just hoping that the image quality would be somewhat on par with the D810 and I have to say that I think it is. Besides the obvious camera body size, my new lens, Zeiss 16-35 f4 is half the weight of the Nikkor lens. The quality is great and it’s stabilized so the f4 is a non-issue. All in all, I must say that I am more than happy with this new setup. I also used the a6000 sometimes, but the image quality is just not there for me.

An added benefit to this light setup is that now, I will probably take my camera with me more often. The down side is that there are still no good adapters that I know of, to adapt my Nikon portrait lenses. The A7RII has some awesome built-in features and it is a nice portrait camera as well. I purchased the Sony 16-35 lens because it’s so versatile and light for travel, not to mention I needed a lens for the new camera 🙂

The battery issue is really not a big deal. I have three batteries right now, but the key here is getting a portable charger. You can even charge it while you are taking pictures or you can use a charger as a battery, so in extreme situations this can be very helpful.

So here is my first post using the Sony A7RII. It’s not as sharp as it could have been since I was on a moving ferry, but it’s ok if you don’t zoom in too much 🙂 I hope you guys like it!
