Same! The FM thread is torture. So is the CV65 thread

Believe it or not but that’s why I have seriously been considering a second body recently. 1st body with my 24-70 GM for family stuff when AF is needed and a second body with CV40 for cool images. I know that if I had one body and cv40 attached I would miss shots due to not having AF

Edit - 2nd body not just for the cv40 but for manual focus lenses in general, or 24-70 on one body and either a UWA or B85 in the other. But it would make the cv40 purchase easier

Couldn’t agree more about needing a second body. TBH as much as I’m gaga over the CV 40mm I don’t actually need another lens, since I’m already doubled-up at 35mm. But I do seriously need a second body with lower resolution, superior AF, and preferably high fps.

a7 III is looking like it could be a good fit, the a9 would be an ideal fit.

An a7R III as a second body would be a disaster for me in that I’d probably just shelve the a7R II because the RIII is just better at both landscapes (marginally) and AF.

Given that I'm pretty much the only APS-c enthusiast here it wouldn't break my heart if the new camera was an a6700 that addresses a few key features that would make the current model so much better.

I'd be game for an a6700 with improved controls!

I've had this little Porcelain pot for many years and thought I'd take a photo of it. It only stands 3" tall. I used to use it to melt butter in.

I've a Lowepro Flipside 300 - That has access only from the 'rear' as such. It does actually fit everything I need into it but the tripod bit is only any good for the smaller Slik tripod that I have not the bigger RedSnapper.

Another quick LR 5 question.... Catalogue related really & probably stupid... But, if I change a folder name on the hard drive, will it also change in LR? Or will LR no longer 'find' it?

If its LR related its best to always make those changes in LR ..

Easiest thing to do is try out the lens. I find that I don't miss too much with MF lenses. What bothers me is switching IBIS focal lengths often in the field. Also, eye AF is cool as heck, hard to deny it.

My current issue is that the R2 + R3 in dual body scenarios are so different, you shoot with the newer body, it becomes a chore going back to the older body, especially when shooting people. Wide angles on the R2 as DOF is less of a concern.

With landscapes where everything manual, no issues.

In a perfect world, ide be rocking a pair of a9R's, first world problems...

Aside from that, current generation of Sony cameras are really good at everything.

CV 40 samples are fantastic for sure

What you are saying rings true with me. I went through a moment this week where I thought I could add the 7r3 but soon realised the 2 would become obsolete in my use. The a73 is interesting, I will wait to see reviews on the af first

Sony are smart. The mixed batteries is an issue for me. Add the a73 and suddenly 2 battery systems and two chargers. Then I’m thinking about upgrading my R2 to r3 to normalise the batteries. Clever game by sony

Finished this tedious image for a client. I say tedious because I had to clone out power lines and a bunch of other items since the crew was still working on the landscaping. Glad it's finished. First time shooting from a forklift. I could get used to that. ;-)a
