It really is getting time for me to get a new camera — in place of my aging Sony a7 II. But, I am still going to wait until late March. No point getting one while it is cold and there is snow on the ground. So, I am willing to wait until Spring. But, I wanted to start getting ready.

Last Summer I sold 6 or 7 of my Sony lenses, Full-Frame & APS-C along with my Sony a6500. I was down to two lenses: this 90mm Prime and my trusty 24-240mm zoom. Now I am just down to the zoom.

I listed the 90mm, on eBay, on a whim on Friday morning. I set a ‘Buy-it-Now’ price at $760. That was a win-win price. I would be happy with it and it would still represent a good deal for the buyer. Well this gentleman, from Texas, figured it out. I had also thrown in two of my six Sony batteries to sweeten the deal. So, it all worked out.

I am HAPPY. I am fairly sure I am now going to get the Canon EOS RP that was announced yesterday. Unlike with the Sony I am not going to get a bunch of lenses. I am going to limit myself to three at most four BUT here is the crazy thing. Canon lenses, compared to Sony, are so affordable that I can get TWO lenses for the price it costs for one Sony. That is the main reason I am switching from Sony. The lenses were way too expensive.
