For a while, I have been considering a new camera. My Sony A7 served me extremely well but was wearing a bit thin. For the longest time, I held out hope that Nikon would release a Mirrorless F-mount but that never happened. I had hoped Sony would release a Sony A7III again that had not happened. The A7rIII was released but like it’s predecessor the A7rII before it was a bit much for my needs.

My primary want in a camera was good iso performance and a silent shutter. It took a little green wise Jedi master to realize, that what I needed had been out for a while now. The Sony A6300, on paper, fit my primary needs even though it only had a crop sensor. So I went to Mack Camera, bought it and I have been very satisfied with the camera. 

I really enjoy working with full frame camera sensors. I love the shallow depth of field they provide and the image quality. For the everyday work though, when I rarely go beyond f/4, a crop sensor is fine. I can do good work on those extremely long days my job sometimes subjects me to. I just need to carry lots of extra batteries.

At the end of the day, I just needed the right tool for the right job. With the A6300 I have it. If the Sony A7III comes out, I will consider it. I have started to get really comfortable working with Sony Cameras, for now though, I have what I need.

Will I review the camera?

No, there are enough proper reviews on the camera, I will give my thoughts on it though after I use it a for a while.
