I went out for a brief photowalk with Mike and the new A7. We both bought our light kit as he decided to shoot with his Sony NEX 7. Its hard to see why a landscape or architectural photographer would need a huge DSLR any more. They have all the time in the world so do not need the amazing ISO levels or quick focusing of a monstrous DSLR. That doesn’t mean that the mirror-less cameras perform badly at these. My A7 seems to be miles better at both of these then my D700 that was a few years old. I feel like I could take this camera everywhere with me as its so small.
We went to the trusty photographer spot of Parliament where indeed there were a few fellow photographers setting up for a landscape shot. It wasn’t a bad one but I made the most of it with a few NIK software filters to bring out the colours in the sky.
