It's a mess la haha. Sure got some usable pics but like 10%? haha Need to adjust a lot in post I guess.

Think for most wedding photographers zoom are still the way to go. I have only 1 body, A6000. I think I swapped lens like 30-50 times on that day.

But one thing to my surprise. I don't use flash so often before this. I am quite surprised at what the TT350S can deliver. It can actually light up quite a big hall even. Gonna explore more into flashes next hehe

Been there lol, ran a A5100 + A6000 combo for a bit.... annnnd ditched the backup body in the end (and now running a 6300 single setup).

Yes, it was convenient (especially when you put an UWA on the backup and a walkaround 35-ish on the main) but extra weight and bulk is... well... extra weight and bulk (more the bulk though, weight isn't that bad) - especially when you spend a lot of your travel time walking for hours on end with a limited size bag with a lot of crap in it lol.

For events though, a dual body setup is daft fast as zero time is wasted lens changing pretty much. For travelling, IMHO you'll be better off getting a better "quick-change friendly" bag or something.

But yeah YMMV. Heck I don't even do zooms (or FF for that matter) due to "bulk" so I'm pretty much an extreme case.

I do prefer 2 body setup for travel purposes. 1 for wide angle & the other for 50mm & 85mm lenses.

Currently I'm using this messenger bag. It is the most convenient out of all the bags ive tested.

Very portable, small, can easily access the camera & can fit 2 apsc body with 3 prime lenses. Very2 convenient.

If you want one sling to rule them all, I'd say also take a look at what I've been carrying around for the better part of 3 years: The ThinkTank Turnstyle 20. It's probably the only "big" sling that I've ever had that doesn't look overly goofy on your back when packed to the brim, and yeah I've gone through quite a few.

Also, that ThinkTank "Brand Tax" really did go to making a sturdy product IMHO - this thing has seen hell and back and it's still pretty much as good as day one (minus a few external blemishes).

Here's my personal long ass review of the thing: https://goo.gl/XdQRua

Note that I'm currently using the V1 and the ones in the market now are all the (arguably) better V2s.

for travelling i prefer a backpack or sling bag that provide front access - more comfortable for long duration.

I've been doing some freelance video mainly, sometimes photos with an a6000, kit lens + 50mm 1.8.

I'm planning to go full frame with an a7III, but I was wondering is it the best choice for the price. I saw online 8.7k full set with 24-70mm lens.

I think you meant 28-70mm lens coz either 24-70 (F4 or F2.8) will easily blow the package bundle above 10k biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
