    After trying the Panasonic G7 I was forced to ditch it, sold all my MFT gear and today I got my new a6300.
    Mainly for video and if it will prove good enough then travel camera.
    Got it with its kit lens and 50mm 1.8 prime.
    Gonna go through it tonight and try to learn the basics and take it from there, really excited :)

    Ah, you are lucky coming in at a time when Sony is actually expanding their lens lineup ... though not enough variety yet.

    COOL! Glad to hear that you went with the leading sensor-maker's A6300 camera model! I sure look forward to hearing your comments on this camera.

    Thanks Derrel
    The sensor on the G7 was just not impressive and so wasn't the AF.
    The a6300 feels like a totally different beast.
    First thing that hit me is how well this camera feels, its very solidly build.
    AF feels from first initial much better.
    We shall see, will learn it as I go.

    So I have heard but doing events I rarely get outside ceremonies and I plan to get a third party battery grip, this should help a lot with the overheating issues even if it might not solve it completely.

    Buying the A9 is not the only problem, buying it and all the native lenses you will need is the problem because they are even more expensive.
    So far no third party company works as well as native Sony lenses on their e mount cameras.
    So buying the A9 and adding to that 24-70mm 2.8, 70-200mm 2.8 and maybe 2 primes and you are now looking at a 10K investment and that's crazy.
