Returning to Canon!!

What made you change? I have a colleague that saw my work and wanted to get into photography. He went the Sony route so I've been reading up and watching some videos about it in order to assist him. I despise the menu system, and frankly, the body looks uncomfortable to hold. I don't understand the appeal...
I got suckered into the mirrorless at the time and they were leading the pack. This was probably five years ago and I regretted it every day. The body doesn’t feel right. The menu sucks. Nothing was intuitive to me. I didn’t love their lenses
now I’m back to Cannon and it feels like home.
Many years ago I borrowed a friend's Sony. Can't remember which one but it was a high end model that all the review sites raved about. I have to agree with what has been said here, the menu system was confusing and not intuitive. The body had such hard edges, I didn't like the feel of it at all. At the time I was shooting with a 5D MkII and a 5Ds, glad I stuck with Canon.
Welcome back to Canon Jon and thank you for joining up here. I also shoot with the Sony A1 and tend to favour it over my R5 especially with the Sigma 500 F5.6 attached. I much prefer the feel of the R5 in my hands though.

    This camera is FANTASTIC. I'm a dog sports shooter, so very fast indoor action with a lot of obstacles to shoot in and around. This camera does a...
