You will still find your gear sitting inside the drybox often after you switch to Sony FF. Maybe few hundred grams lighter but not that much either. If you getting back similar setup your camera bag will most likely still be the same bag? Not to mention the lenses are mostly costlier biggrin.gif

If you want big difference maybe need to go APS-C or Micro 4/3 with respective mount lenses. But you must accept the quality drop.

Perhaps main reason I haven't jump on FF biggrin.gif 1) Bigger size 2) Higher cost

Yeah you are right but when a new toy in your hand u must be use it often rather than let it sleep in the drybox 😄

I know that not a cheap gear that i own now..im not getting the same gear as nikon when i switch to sony..its just A7 III + 24-70mm F4 is enough..time for heavy expensive FF body + heavy expensive 2.8 lens is over for me..im going low now with sony system..although im no longer in the field of wedding/event photography but my photography interest is still there..

Yeah my nikon still making a good shots but i think the time has come for mirrorles..my gear just sit in the drybox all the time and off course i didnt bring it with me to travel because of the weight..my early plan is to buy Sony RX100 III for travel but when i checked the price i realize that i need to pay nearly 4k for it and still my nikon gear remain untouch in the drybox..better sell it & use the money to buy sony..

That guy is right. Seems like you're having GAS, if you want travel lightly, maybe consider Sony cheap apsc body with some Sigma prime lenses, Sony release new 16-50mm f2.8 for apsc.

Zeiss Sony 24-70mm F4 is expensive, better buy Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 RXD for Sony FE, not so expensive only 3k+ or buy used.
I owned one currently, traveling 24 - 28mm doesn't make huge different anyway.
This Tamron is light and small, it has very good review all over sites and youtubes, also extremely good minimum focus distance (19cm) for little macro or detailed shots, sharp lens too, really worth buying it if you really want to switch.

Or you want that extra 4mm wide, you may consider new Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 for Sony FE, around RM4.5k.

Sony A7III (RM7000) + Tamron 28-75 f2.8 (RM3000) or Sigma 24-70mm (RM4500)
Buy used if want cheaper or lack of budget

2.6k, you can top up slightly more to get rm3k Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 or Sigma 24-70mm f2.8

if 4mm wide is not your concern, 4mm could make some difference, but traveling not so much

Make sure you are buying correct Godox flash, for example V860S, S = Sony.

Other reasons, you need to mount deeper.
Turn off silent shooting.
Or your godox flash hot shoe is broken, I had one broken, just buy new godox flash hot shoe to replace.

Selling 70-200mm f2.8 GM for Sony Zeiss 16-35mm f4 and probably Sigma or Sony 135mm f1.8

Don't know which to get for that 135mm f1.8

Will miss this 70-200, but having 135mm f1.8 is lighter and sharper, can 200mm by apsc mode x1.5.

Yes, the godox flash is S version for Sony.
The silent shooting will affect the functionality?

You can't fire the flash while on silent shooting, flash required mechanical shutter

Most likely, the hot shoe electronic pins are broken, can easily fix by replace new hot shoe, buy from shopee

Just replace mine last month

Is it all natural light?
Why no go for 85mm f1.4? Not the Sony GM, other third party brand
