Fantastic shots.

I have seen that AF-C pulsing effect on most lenses that i own, specially at smaller apertures (f8 and up). I have also read about it quite a bit. It seems to be "normal" on the A7R2 and is one of that camera's limitations as far as AF goes.
The A9 (and I assume, the a6500) should be free of such issues.
Everyone agrees that AF-S works perfectly.

Thanks for verifying the AF-C issues with the a7rII. Once I get my other camera back, I"ll test and see how it works on it.

Oh, tomorrow is supposed to drop to a balmy 94° with a chance of rain so there may be an awesome sunset in the making.

Well sunset was a bust. Grey skies all the way at the beach. But I played it smart. Since I've been working on my portraiture, I dragged the wife and the flash for some on location outdoors shoot at the pier.
Pics later. Now it's time for dinner.

King and Queen Buildings in Atlanta. I had to shoot through the fence on this one. Took a while to post process too. I had to clone out lots of cones and integrate a sky from sunset with the another exposure for the buildings (when more lights were on). I then blended in about 5 images for the light trails.

FE 55mm

I'd say your efforts were well worth it. Super image.

Thank you Gene. Time blending is something I have been wanting to try out.

Great result. Love the lights on the buildings and the car trails are so clean. Well worth the effort

One more at 800mm from yesterday. Portrait of a Costas hummingbird. The 2nd image is the full frame shot with just adjustments made in the ACR editor.

I am renaming Silent Mode on the a9...to Ninja Mode. It is so sneaky quiet.

Shot a car show with it this morning, worked great. No need for 42mp at that...

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

Wow, the cropped 800mm shot is incredible. It's the exact opposite of miniaturization...the bird looks like it's 3 feet tall. My expectation was the 2x would lose a lot of sharpness, but it still seems plenty sharp.

Sony is blowing my mind with their optics...never expected that.

Loxia 21mm.
No clouds :(, but was generally calm so that was nice.

Love the reflections David. My only nit is the light area behind the tree on the left of the first image. Whether it's natural or not, it seems a bit distracting to me.

You could select that area of the tree and apply a curves adjustment layer and lower the white point until the brightness better matched the rest of the sky around it.

Here's a quick example.
