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.
Bill....You've really given me a lot of great information. I surely do thank you for that. I want to jump to mirrorless (Sony a9),but at my age, I really wonder if it's worth it. I have a good collection of L series telephoto lenses, and I have the 7DII, plus the 5D IV. I have serious reservations as to how well my lenses will work with Sony. Since I'm really in a quandary at this time concerning switching, I'll sit on it for a while, and stay with Canon, until I get more information that would support my switching over.
