Sigma 937317 First Impressions

"Worth every penny."

I wouldn't trade this camera for anything! I chose to shoot most outdoor shots with an aperture of + or - f/5. The Sigma 937317 is by far my favorite camera since the Nikon D700. The availability of the control dials makes a huge difference. It is getting plenty of use taking pictures of our new little one.

Sigma 937317 Final Thoughts

"Can't complain!"

Higher ISO produces very usable images, even at ISO 12800. The flash feels lighter than my Andoer flash for my other camera. The whole package is well thought out. Still getting used to the buttons. Wonderful color, clarity and detail.

"I LOVE that feature."

So I bought this for my California vacation. I love this combo and I must say I am thrilled with the Sigma 937300. Even with the lens, battery and SD card, it weighs very little. I just absolutely love this Sigma Mirrorless Camera. Does wonderfully with night shots handheld.

Really great, even in low light with f/4 lenses. Hope this helps you decide on your next Sigma Mirrorless Camera! A shame since the video quality is very good. More megapixels would be nice too when cropping BIFs. Secondly the EVF is amazing amazing amazing.

Sony ILCE6500/B First Impressions

"Highly recommend."

The focus speed in general is so much faster and more reliable. The second problem is the focusing controls. Mirrorless has come into it's own. And I wish the Sony lenses were a bit cheaper. I can't recommend the Sony ILCE6500/B enough.

Sony ILCE6500/B Final Thoughts

"Let's be clear."

I'm also really enjoying the Sony film simulation. Low Light video is very well done. The Sony ILCE6500/B phase and contrast system has it beat. That's why I replaced the stock lens caps with Sony equivalents. I use it for vlogging, photoshoots, and pictorials on Instagram.

"Hands down."

Really great, even in low light with f/4 lenses. In practice, the Sony ILCE7M2/B produces superlative images. The first day owning it I was taking amazing shots on Auto mode. The availability of the control dials makes a huge difference. The flash can be overpowered rather than the subtle fill.
