Vinz as always primo portraiture. These two give me a Mona Lisa impressions...just the slight hint of a mischievous grin.

Big post but hopefully no one cares.

a6500 with PD capture clipped to my pack was perfect this weekend. Outstanding lightweight kit. Perfect for on the go activity. Came away with a bunch of great shots. I never took my big FF DSLR out for this stuff. We did 60 miles, >6000ft climbing, >10,000 descent. Perfect weather!

Saw enough bison to last a lifetime...do they really do anything more than a cow? Well I tried to kill me outside of Banff quite some years ago. If that had
happened on this trip I'd been dead, back then I could still run! This one was far enough away for comfort.

Shot my first wedding with the a9 this weekend.....really happy with the camera as it got the job done so effortlessly. AF and everything is so quick that it just churns through the job with ease. Videographers had some bright persistent lights that I was able to play off of to get some 20fps sequences too...which was nice for dance floor shots and things like catching the precise moment when the bouquet lands in the hands of one of the bridesmaids during the bouquet toss.

I've shot a couple of weddings on the a7rII and the sluggishness always bugged me, but when its not doing the heavy lifting and is being utilized as a second camera. 42mp also comes in handy as 200mm isn't always enough.

EF 24-70II worked REALLY well with the a9 even in low light during the reception.

2 of the a9 batteries lasted 12 hours and 1,300 exposures.

Still in the midst of the onerous process of processing all of these files...here are a few so far:

really nice work Carlo, that first one is special!

The 20fps does let you capture that exact moment you need. Last weekend at the track, I shot 3K frames a day, and only used one battery up both days...the second battery never got more than 5% used...that sure is nice! On my architectural shoot last week, 6 hours, 6 batteries on the A7R2...but the DR is so much better.

Love the title MM. For the American Indian, the Bison was a general store on the hoof.

really nice. if the A7RIII will become pricey, i will decide on the A9. "Gets the job done" is far more important than image quality.

make no mistake, I see nothing wrong with IQ from the a9, not as much leeway on shadow and highlight recovery, but you can still work the exposures 2-3 stops, and when the exposure is right...its excellent. I am using it more than I thought I would...shooting a pep rally at the school today and will have both cameras on hand. But I know the a9 will get the brunt of the work.

I love everything about this last candid, and I know the family will as well.

A9/85GM is special kind of the way I always thought 5Dc/85L was special. Colors, rendering just do it for me.

Thanks Travis! Yes 20fps really comes in handy for anything you're documenting as it happens as those minute movements that happen at fractions of a second mean the difference between a great shot and an OK shot. The downside is having to sift through a big series of exposures just for one shot, but its effortless out in the field while shooting. I never hit the buffer which was nice.

Typo in my last post...I had 3,100 exposures over the course of 12 hours on the a9, not 1,300. I never minded having to change batteries on the a7rII, but the a9 battery life in real world shooting seems to be similar to what I experienced when I shot Canon.

Thanks Vinz! And yeah Travis I agree that the difference in IQ is pretty negligible outside of extreme circumstances. I've managed to hit the limit of the a9's DR and when I directly compared the a7rII and a9, it did come out to right about a 1 stop difference. But when I do hit that limit, its in really deep shadows when you push the exposure 3+ stops...usually it manifests in some random shaded area in the background. In those cases I've learned to just go back and drop the exposure of those areas to get rid of the noise.

I had a shoot at 2 in the afternoon y'day and ended up using the a9. Really bright outside so I used the meter for highlights mode on the a9 (really useful for outdoor portraits!)...when I got back home I found that I had to push the exposure 4 stops, but the files turned out fine. Underexposed mid-tones seem to be fine.

Yes the 85GM and A9 render differently than Zeiss glass on the a7rII. I go back and forth on whether I prefer the micro-contrast and punch or the pleasant muted look.
