Hi Paul,

yes afraid so, the Sony kit fits into a very compact bag and suits my needs, I've got an A6000 with kit lens coming as a second body and small travel kit. The A6000 and A7R2 can use the same lenses (although the A6000 is a crop sensor camera) so it makes sense to keep it all compatible so I can mix and match as I want.

That's a pity. Good luck with your photography journey, wherever it takes you!

Thanks Paul, for the first time in over 8 years I will no longer have any 43 or m43 kit.

It was my intention to run 2 systems, the A7R2 + lenses as my main kit and the m43 as a compact travel kit, but in the end the Sony stuff packed into such a small bag anyway it isn't a problem to carry about at all.
I've just bought an A6000 + 16-50 kit lens to compliment the ff setup and also as a second (backup) body, as both bodies can use the same lenses (although the A6000 is crop sensor) it makes more sense than having 2 different systems (Sony and m43).

So it is with a slightly heavy heart I bid farewell to m43, it served me very well, but things move on.

I think you'll miss this forum! I haven't yet found a Sony one that has knowledgable people or doesn't have an irritating proportion of trolls. I still maintain a Nikonians subscription because there are such a great collection of people there.

We all have a different balance of needs and perceptions and I do perfectly well understand your decision.

Sony FF plus m4/3 remains right for me for the moment. After quite a reasonable trial I found the 6300's handling so inferior to that of the E-M1 that it wouldn't be viable for me as a travel/street option, my neck and back can no longer comfortably carry fast FF lenses longer than around 100mm, and it's only for low light work and some landscape that in real life use I 'need' a sensor larger than m4/3.
