Today is the latest installment of my “Top Lists” of 2015. Previously I posted The Most popular Photos of 2015 and The Most popular Tutorials of 2015 and today is the top list of the most popular blog posts, articles and reviews I published on PhotoTraces.com in 2015.
The popularity of the articles was driven by my switch from a Canon DSLR to a Sony Mirrorless system. The first two articles in today’s top list were by far the most popular content on this blog.
After 10 years of shooting with Canon, I finally switched to Sony. I say “finally” because I was contemplating the move for a long time.
Many of my readers, friends and fellow photographers keep asking me why I jumped the ship.
Here is my long answer.
At the end of 2014, after shooting for a decade with Canon, I completely switched to a Sony Mirrorless.
Just before the Christmas holiday, I sold all of my Canon equipment and ordered the Sony A6000,Sony 10-18mm f/4, and Zeiss 16-70mm f/4 in one shot. I paid $2000 in total. Sony lenses are always pricy but I found that the price of the complete kit was very reasonable.
After six months of using my new equipment and, after taking about 10,000 photos, I am ready to give you comprehensive feedback on my experience in switching to Sony.
