You could be professor Vinz :)
That price looks good. Yesterday I offered up $2900 on Greentoe, no takers yet.

An upgrader’s notes on the new Sony A7rIII Pt 1 from David Braddon-Mitchell:

The a7RIII sounds like a nice upgrade for those of us that like manual focus shooting.

I've been using Capture One Pro since I don't really have another option right now. There's a lot to like about it, but its such a sluggish software. Takes forever to go through the typical actions I would fly through in LR.

Yeah that was the first thing I noticed since the Loxia 21 was the first lens I used. The EVF is much brighter, sharper, refreshes faster, and is more stable when zoomed in...all of that really improved manual focussing.

you using 10 or 11? C1 is very fast, but you have to arrange it for your workflow. 11 made a big change and I'm flustered using it, however, I simply move around the UI to my workflow. Only thing that's sluggish is the renaming of folders. If you set up your panel to have all your editing stuff, it should be very fast.

for instance, my home snapshots that I'm prepping prints for, I use the gear icon for the recipes, have one for small print that tags the date on the bottom right. I have the recipe's, process, white balance, exposure, high dynamic range, and library. That's all I touch for snaphots. The up arrow on the top right is to copy all settings, select all in the series, and then down arrow to apply the setting, then export. In that sense, it's ultra fast.

if you're jumping top tabs from color to lens to exposure to details, it's too slow for my liking. I simply use exposure, and add all the controls I want in there.

so this is what I mean, if you look at the exposure tab, it certainly does NOT look like my attached file, but that's how I arranged it, to my liking. If you use a lot of presets, you can certainly add it to this area. I dont use presets too often, however I do copy settings often, and may be adding it to this panel, so I dont have to navigate other panels.

That’s great to hear. For me, I think I’ll wait for the next version with the upgraded sensor.

Here are some recent sample shots to document renovation of this North Alamo Building which was once the historic Alden Hotel from 1890 in SATX. This is a four story brick and masonry building. I don't know the full details on how the building will be used but I think the new owner will live on the fourth floor with retail or office space down below. Basic LR edits on these and captured with the FE 16-35 GM.

Here is the link to the rest of the gallery if anyone is interested. If you enjoy construction images (ie Gene), you may enjoy these.

Oh cool I didn't know you could arrange the UI...yeah one of my issues was the need to constantly go back and forth between tabs. I also need to spend some time and program the shortkeys.

But a big issue for me is how sluggish the catalog tools are...importing, moving files, etc etc. I'm working off of a USB SSD and it takes so long to move stuff around.

yeah, moving the catalog is really slow, but actual editing should be MUCH faster. Doing 100% view's with the magnifyer.... so awesome. Scroll to zoom in/out... amazing. Straightening while zoomed in, 4 point vertical straighten like dxo... awesome.

that adjustment clipboard needs to be added for my sake, too often I want to apply all settings EXCEPT for straightening/cropping​. Needs to be there.

once you get everything you use on one panel, it becomes very fast. Since I have a very wide screen, the rest of the layout is perfect.

Have one but don't shoot it often because there is a 70-300G and 100400GM here. Would sell it but there
are two small nicks on the front element. They don't affect image quality but I'd feel bad selling it to somone.

Interesting building Alfredo, thanks for sharing. My background is in concrete structures beginning with prestressed concrete bridge foundation piling for freeway overpasses for example. The major projects I worked on was construction of the concrete tunnel liners for the Hollywood Metrorail subway system, and the Metropolitan Water District's Diamond Valley Reservoir Project near where I live today.

I also worked on Petco Stadium (San Diego Padres Ballpark) where the company I worked for built and erected the pre-cast concrete risers, stairs, walls and slabs, and the five story underground parking structure at Hollywood and Highland where the company I worked for used extremely high strength concrete that had a design strength of 12,000 psi for the structure's columns and beams.

Oops, sorry, that reads like a resume. :oops:
