Lighten Up & Stay Sharp: Why theplanetD Travel Bloggers Switched To Sony

In their Complete Travel Photography Gear Guide Dave and Deb of theplanetD discuss why they switched to the Sony α7R II and α7 II and Sony/Zeiss lenses. "I’ve currently made the transition from my Canon 5D Mark II camera system to the lighter Sony full frame mirrorless system. For travel, it’s important to me to have less to carry. I found my Canon cameras and lenses were starting to impede my desire to take photographs."-theplanetD

See theplanetD's complete guide which includes thoughts on camera bags, filters and more for the intrepid travel photographer.
