Another possibility. I have seen one in a camera store, but have not used one.
They appear well-made.

Just be aware that the Sony a7II was introduced on 20 November, 2014, so not very new technology.

Not endorsing this reseller, as I know nothing about them. They have a handy listing. See how much space your
binocs need and go from there.

These are Chinese made units, but not bad. I use a smaller one for a revolver case and it does a nice job.

Kept my lenses in my bags without desiccants for 54 years with no problems. Houses have been air conditioned/de-humidified. Iowa, USA, get pretty humid at times.

In looking at their website, it appears this is a small company. They are set up to distribute their products in mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan only.

I think, I hope, you will enjoy your Sony equipment. I know I do. I found the K-1 too bulky for my smaller hands, and found the a7 series much better. I had the original a7, the a7II, then the a7rII, the a7III, and now the a7rIII.

I have had the 28/2 and the 85/1.8. I currently use the 24-105 (One of Sony's best lenses). Some feel the distortion of the 28/2 is a bit high,
but that never bothered me. The 85/1.8 is excellent, IMO. It is well-regarded.

I have been using Sony a7 since the K-1 was fairly new, and have no plans to move to anything else. I have about 10-12 manual Pentax lenses which I do use. The biggest problem I see with legacy lenses is getting focus at infinity. Pentax to NEX adapters are Chinese made, some work better than others.

I agree 100% with Paul and Mac. I have used ON1 since it's inception. It has been steadily improved, with regular updates. Plus, the number of video tutorials
available is staggering.
