Recently, I decided to sell my Fuji X-T2 for a Sony A7rIII. Before I go into the details of why I ditched Fuji, let me briefly explain my journey through different camera systems.
I have recently used my Sony A6000 together with 1 zoom and 3 prime lenses on a safari in the Serengeti. The lenses are:
- Sigma 30mm f2.8
- Sigma 60mm f2.8
- Sony 16mm + UWA converter f2.8
- Sony 55-210mm f4.5-f6.3
In the following I will briefly explain why this camera/lens combination is not the best choice for such a trip.
If you are a Sony E mount user, there isn’t really much choice of telephoto lenses, at least not for APS-C cameras (such as the Sony A6000). The Sony SEL 55-210 is one of the few options in the price range below 500€. The perfect travel zoom? Let’s find out!
The Sony A6000 is a mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera with E-Mount. It can an be purchased with or without the 16-50mm power-zoom kit lens.
To be fair, I review the camera body and lens separately.
