Recently when shooting a commercial production, the model approached me saying 'I always thought professional photographers have big cameras'. This made me smile big time but I have to admit, I did not know how much power this tiny Sony Alpha camera has, before I started working with it. I was completely new to mirrorless gear and photographed with Canon equipment since the year 1999.
In the meantime I have shot a few sets for large magazines (e.g. Playboy Germany) with the Sony A7R2, so I believe I can truely judge the value of the camera from a professional perspective. I don't photograph landscapes and I prefer to use autofocus when I work. Requirements are always to deliver a lot of output in a short period of time. And I am often working with unexperienced girls that have never posed (naked) in front of a camera.
