I thought I would follow up on this subject and probably try to document this further over the next few weeks.
Following the last post on this I have been continuing my investigations whilst my SLR is in for repair.
I have fairly well convinced myself at this point that I do want to move to a smaller camera but not ready to make the decision yet. To help me on the way I am renting a Sony a6300 from BorrowLenses.com for my vacation starting this weekend. Hopefully this will give me what I need to make a decision of some sort.
There are two things i want to get out of it.
- Try mirrorless in the real world and see if it makes the difference I am expecting.
- Try out the one of the two cameras I have in mind and check operability.
The two cameras I am considering at the moment are the Sony a6300 and the Olympus Pen-F digital. Both fit with my needs in terms of features so it comes down to usability and livability. The Olympus is more expensive but look beautiful the Sony more affordable ;it’s not beautiful but is well designed and I like the look of it.
A week with the Sony will give me a good idea of what it is like to use and if it is good I will probably go with it leaving extra cash for lenses and accessories.
