    Hi Mark,
    I hope you don't mind me sending you a PM but I see from a number of your posts you moved a few years back from shooting mainly Pentax DSLR to Sony A7 mirrorless.
    The pull of FF is tempting me but budget constraints would limit my choice to the original A7 with a 24-105 as my main/sole lens to start with.It would also meantrading my present set up of K5ii and 16-85 which gives me results I am on the whole very happy with.
    If you were able to share any of your thoughts on the transition from DSLR to mirrorless and the limitations of the original A7 it would be greatly appreciated(I've noted your comments about slow focusing and shutter shock)
    Many thanks and Best Wishes,
