    I have been a long term Fuji user for almost a decade but this week I picked up a cheap Sony A7, with a view to borrowing a Canon 24mm T/S lens on it. Research suggested that the Sigma MC-11 would be a good convertor to use it with (due to good interior anti-reflective material) so I grabbed...

    Right now, US buyers can get a Sony A7R IIIa and A Tamron 28-200 for $2700. That's a heck of an entry into FF for under $3k, with what is one of the best sensors Sony ever made. Want cheaper yet?
