I have 7 in total and I am good in the battery dept. Now with the battery booster I have full confidence that I will not run out of juice .

the way mirrorless works is that the batteries deplete over time use rather than shutter clicks. Like a timelapse of hundreds of clicks, will hardly budge battery life. It's no different from a smart phone, if you find out that you're using it a lot, then you've got to swap sooner than later, folks that have two foot in the system are aware and compensate as needed.

it's very similar to the mindset of using a dumb phone and not ditching that system due to battery life. Dumb phones would last for days on a charge and could make calls. At the time of transition to smart phones, many resisted giving up battery life, while others entertained possibilities and took the early jump. Shooting a birthday a few weeks back, a mixture of posed and candids, and three hours of shooting, I didnt go through a single battery (dont even think I hit halfway). I guess your style of shooting can deplete battery faster, like if you're chimping. Changing batteries is like changing lenses, it takes little time, and you do it less often.

So far it has been an interesting ride.

Model shoot.. Success..Of course that was all good light

Light the Night Event.. Afternoon until DARK.. 18 to 55 all all day and even in the night. TT 350 Flash worked fine. Focus with the 18 to 55 was FAST and reliable. 10 HUGE group shots ..No problems at all.

Outdoor pet event... No problems at all 18 to 55 and the 90 all day. No low light that I had to worry about.

First wedding... Natural light in the church..I found the 90 had difficulty focusing on the subject in low light.. No flash.. Reception I use Canon most of the time.. The X T2 with the TT350 on camera using the 18 to 55 worked fine.

Second Wedding.. Outdoor wedding.. The 90 worked fine.. My TT350 was in the process of being replaced.

Still not 100 % sold on Fuji.. LOVE shooting the camera and happy with files.

Small indoor wedding this weekend so I will see what happens.

If you are finding the AF problematical at times check out the AF+MF settings. A simple touch of the focus rind will engage it. Very helpful at those times

Like how? Can't imagine Canon coming out with some magic formula to improve their sensors.

They very much did with the 5D4 IMHO. And it's not magic, it's science! (and copying Sony)

I had very little opportunity to compare the two side by side as I quickly sold the 5D3, but the files from the 5D4 are absolutely in another league. Same sport, different league.

In Botswana I was shooting the 5D4 next to 1D4 and 7D2.
We used to say that the 5D3 though better, was very similar in look, noise and DR to 1D4 files.

Next to the 5D4, the 1D4 files look,. well dare I say "bad"? Perhaps a little extreme, but in every case, anyone would chose the 5D4 file taken in the same light of the same subject. You can positively see it. For a few years prior I shot that same 1D4 next to my now departed 5D3, and never did I walk away with the same conclusion.

Jake I understand but I can't believe 5dmk4 being better than A7RII. Maybe it is. Mind sharing some side by side. Thanks.

I didn't realize we were comparing to A7RII. Somehow thought it was vs. 5D3.

Bobby the Sony will excel in some types of photography but I still think the Nikon and Canon still are more reliable in low light with focus assist on the external flash.

I was actually very interested in getting the A7rmk2 but my logic told me using both Fuji and canon suites me just fine.

Bobby since your type of photography seems more into portraits and some sports outdoors you’ll probably enjoy the Sony for more megapixels.

Today I just did another family session with my Fuji XT2 and Canon 5D Mark4. The Canon truly is a joy to use with absolute rock solid results with incredible auto focus. The Fuji did fine with the 56 mm prime since I was shooting in open shade with ample light.

Only reason I mentioned A7RII was I have tested that with 5dmk3 and my XT1. But no ISO6400 or higher.
