I use Sony Cameras and Lenses for my landscape, and travel photography, and now, Sony has introduced the perfect wildlife lenses for my bird and wildlife photography too!

I have been using Sony A7 bodies for 3 years now, various models. I have also used the aXXXX series crop bodies, and the A9. I am so pleased with the quality of the image files from all of these cameras. The crop body a6xxx series are fine cameras, suited for action photography – but with the introduction of the A9, and A7 III, full frame now has the fast-focus, tracking and fps speed that the crop bodies have had.
I try to keep my kit simple, and that usually means 3 zoom lenses to cover the super wide to medium telephoto needs when doing travel photography or general landscape work. I also love and use fixed primes – notably the Sony 55mm F1.8 and the Sony/Zeiss 85mm f1.8. The only issue is that you don’t have the same flexibility that zoom lenses provide, but then I’ve been a strong proponent of ‘zooming with your feet’.
