Sony Final Thoughts

"Fast shipping!"

Low light seems to be better than the GH4 or G7. Fast or continuous autofocus. The Sony phase and contrast system has it beat. The longer you have it, the more small issues you find. The flash feels lighter than my Andoer flash for my other camera.

Fujifilm X-A5 w/XC15-45mm Final Thoughts

"The tripod."

The Fujifilm X-A5 w/XC15-45mm was with me at all times. A small upgrade compared to my trusty little X-T20. I was able to get some great shots of my dog running full speed. I'm also really enjoying the Fujifilm film simulation. The flash can be overpowered rather than the subtle fill.
