I shoot exclusively tech cam - architecture & landscapes. I can do everything that I want in my fields and equipment. I have been completely happy for years and have not missed anything.
However, lately I have been asked several times of familyportraits in home/garden invironment. I'm not particularly interested in the DF+ body and have therefore looked around for a camera/lens for this sole purpose.
I figure that with this one lens setup I can do headshots as well as a familyshot of 4!
Would you say that for this single purpose - is this a wise choice? Since portraits is NOT my field I have a lot to learn and I am not updated on which camera/sensor is good/natural on skincolours, accurate autofocus (prefer accuracy instead of speed), how sensitive camerashake is and so forth....
Since I am a hardcore tripodguy in my natural fields of photography I can very well see myself using a monopod and a small loose ballhead as a good compromise between flexibility and base support.
Coming from Alpa 12 system/Credo 60/Schneider lenses I am pretty spoiled on technical quality, which is why my head turned the A7R way.
I should add that whatever it will be, it is not a question of building a large new/different system with future possibilities, no, this is a body with one max two lenses for portraits only! It is more for me to be able to say yes to an assignment if I choose to do so and ofcourse to slowly learn this field.....
Any advice would be appreciated
