Couple of weeks ago, I got a chance to play with the Sony RX100vii – never having held that series at all before. I was most impressed, and with the picture quality from a friend’s trip to Peru.
As the sensor is very similar to my RX10iii I knew what it could and could not do in low light, and while my RX10 was great to about 300 mm. equivalent, images beyond that often suffered.
I have used and enjoyed the Nex-7 and then A6000for years, other than the less than stellar action focusing.
I wanted a camera/lenses/bag combination that would be lightweight, able to keep up with a 2 year old and work at my weekly evening get toggethers in often marginal home lighting.
I wanted to keep my current small bag but didn’t need smaller. I already have the 10-18, 16-70 and 55-210 for the 6000 but liked the idea of the higher quality greater range 70-350 – I could have the equivalent of my EOS R kit in a lightweight under the seat for flying setup.
My plan is to use the shorter two zooms along with the new 70-350, all of them IS so lack of IBIS isn’t critical and it saves me $650 vs. the 6600.

So far I’m most impressed but more work at the dog park and with my grand daughter will really tell me how it’s working.
