This is a really cool shot Maureen. The action,and the water splashing, all make for a really nice shot.

Bill, these are super nice images of the 2 youngsters!! I have been looking at the Sony a7RIII, and even possibly the a9. I saw where you had some serious concerns with noise/ISO. Have you been able to successfully resolve the noise problem? I also have concerns about using current Canon lenses with the Sony cameras. I've seen some complaints about this. Have you found that the Canon lenses work well on your Sony? I'm thinking about using the Sigma MC II adapter, but haven't really head much talk about which adapter is best. Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks Mike. appreciate it.

As far as the Sony, I'm pretty pleased I did have concerns but after some more controlled testing it turns out to be operator error. 42 mp of resolution and 100mm less reach means I have to learn to shoot this equipment a bit differently than I was shooting the Canon equip. In case you didn't see this post. https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=18644070 In a period of less than 2 years I have dropped 200mm of reach. I wanted the high resolution over what the A9 gives. MedicineMan is the real answer man on this equipment though. I know he shoots the A9. New friend that I met shooting whooping cranes this past January. He called the other day to let me know the place I bought had dropped the price $200 (500 on A9) and it was within 30 of my purchase so I called and they refunded me the difference.

I have used Canon lenses with the MC-11 with decent success but nothing of length. I am reading a book from Friedman's Archives right now and he praises the MC-11 in his section about adapters. I still have my 7DmkII and I'm thinking of buying a Tamron 150-600 again for it but trying it on the Sony as well. Not in a rush to do it since I haven't totally decided to keep the last Canon item I have.
