By the way MM, to get the first shot I posted earlier I was knee deep in that water in a pair of shorts. However, since it's winter here I did have a sweater on. ;-)a

Haha, well I went for a walk yesterday and had Smartwool on top of head to tip of toes.....and still never got warm.

Mickey I feel the a7000 is close but I think I'm going to hang onto the one I've got just for the lightweight nature.
The a7000 will have to accept the new FZ100 (I think that's right) batteries and will be bigger, two card slots too.
Still a certain beauty in small and light.

Its funny where I hike for petros they are very very skittish. But up by Flagstaff and Prescott they are not so scared. There are hunting permits in AZ for them but I have heard they are not as tasty as even a mule deer.

A state biologist told me they are one of the smartest dumbest animals out there. They know how to get through various fences even barbed wire.... they can figure out people and vehicle patterns in a day or so...... but if you startle a herd your best bet is to stand still and wait..... they often run in a circle right back to the danger LOL

We've eaten impalla, wart hog, etc. so I'd def. give Pronghorn a go. On our last trip out west we ate Buffalo too many times to count. Buffalo chile was my favorite. I wonder if anyone farms proghorns....you know they farm elk in New Zealand and it's sold in lots of restaurants.

Quick shot of the a7rIII with the 50 1.8 to get a sense of how compact the whole set-up is. Noticeably shorter than the FE55.

It looks like this will be my new go-to casual set-up and I think I'll be offloading the RX1RII finally. Mapping crop mode to C3 on the R3 means I can quickly crop to an 85mmish FOV too.

Also nice that I can carry this with the Loxia 21, FE 35 f2.8, and the Godox T350 and have a really competent kit in a very minimal total bag weight.

I also picked up the new peak design capture V3. It's a worthwhile upgrade since its a lot smaller than the old one. The old version would dig into my body when I sat down because its so wide, so I found that I didn't like to use them when out and about casually. I was out with the V3 y'day and it worked out fine.

I went for the silver, which looks a little 'louder' than the black, but is still more minmalistic and looks less like some sort of weapon.

Mapping crop mode to C3 is a great idea...is that just an a7R III capability? Doesn’t appear possible with a7R II...

I wish you could map any menu item to a custom button, instead of the limited list.

It only works on the r3....a9 can't do this either.

Seems like something that can easily be added by firmware though, so hopefully Sony pushes this through.

My concern with mapping crop mode to a custom button is that I might accidentally bump the button and not realize I'm taking 18mp crops unintentionally. This hasn't happened yet as the r3 buttons are pretty firm, but I still think a more visible crop mode indicator is needed. Right now, the only indication that you're in crop mode is a small icon that pops up, and only in certain view modes.

I agree that Sony just needs to allow all functions to be mapped to a custom button or the Fn menu. There's a pretty comprehensive list of stuff that can be mapped, but I'd personally like Live-view on/off and EFCS on/off to be mappable too.

actually, the a9 can do that...I have Crop mode mapped to C3 as well. I use it all the time when shooting stuff at the school, since I don't have an 85mm...now that I have the 70-200 it won't be an issue.

Another of the Monzo Granite at sunset in JTNP...I am almost done with the edits from the trip...it was very productive. This was shot with the CV12, but then it was cropped down a lot. I liked the 7X6 format, kinda MF.

Oh cool. I had no idea you could do that on the a9.

....and if you do it on the a9 you might as well shoot in 4K vid and harvest images for roughly the same amount of final mpx's.

On the a9 you can assign 'crop decision' to a custom button or straight to crop mode? Does that make sense?
On the Riii you can map it so you go instantly into crop with one push, I thought on the a9 you custom a button that gets you to the either/or decision, so not just on button press.
Am I correct?

My L Bracket came in a few days ago. For $25, I have no complain. I would said it's not 100% fitted, but 95%. Is it as good as RRS? No. But at 1/10 of the price, I am ok with it.
