Man it feels like im relearning photography with it though... I was getting the A7III's quirks down by the end of the day though. Definitely love how a bunch of the images came out... Still have another dozen or so to go through and process... I was teaching myself the focus modes and just having to learn roughly where i need to be when it comes to capturing my dogs.. Autofocus is fantastic and really my hit rate was on par with my 7D II which is a pretty high bar.

Sadly todays light was kinda hit or miss, worked well for the flowers, less so for the dogs... Tomorrow will be better hopefully

Love the look on the 90mm f/2.8 Macro too.. The 55 is great too but i did not get the best light when i was shooting it so i didnt get to show off how gorgeous the images look with it

The sensor is spectacular, For only having another 4 megapixels the images have so much more crispness and sharpness to them.. Its almost unreal... Plus the difference in isolation ability is huge.. that little Sonnar is reminding me what it was like shooting film

Downside? Eye and face detect AF do not seem to work well with the corgis, but it still seems to get the AF in about the right spot most of the time. The RAW files take up almost twice the space of my 7DII and the viewfinder tends to make objects look brighter than they actually are.

Congrats on the new camera! Great first shots. Eye AF doesn’t work on Yorkies either, a bummer for me. :p

Congrats Trevor.

Maybe there will be a future firmware update for PET auto eye AF. ;-)a

Woot on your new machine! Love your hound.
I've yet to enjoy eye AF. Doesn't work for bierds, moose, or caribou. So far for wildlife Sony's dropped the ball (I'm teasing a bit here, not that I expected eye on a turtle or anything).

I'd take intervalometer in an update slightly over eye AF.

Well, after nearly a month of foot-dragging, I finally got my FE 35mm 1.4 ZA up for sale on FM (external link). Needing the funds to offset some unforseen medical costs.

Since I'm mainly a landscape guy (at this point) I don't need the lens as my Loxia 35mm is my preferred landscape/cityscape lens at that focal length. Regardless, selling this wonderful lens is painful. Honestly though, my next lens - when/if I get an opportunity to buy one - will likely be a practical zoom, like perhaps a FE 24-105mm.

I don't prefer zooms, but they absolutely have their place and general-purpose one would certainly be useful to me.

David, I hope your medical situation isn't serious. Sad to see you sell your FE 35 f1.4 lens. I too would love to have another zoom lens for travel. I have been impressed with the images I've seen from the FE 24-105mm. I am also interested in the FE 100-400 as a landscape/occasional wildlife lens.

I have been on the annual family vacation at the beach...the weather has not cooperated much for sunrise and sunset or Milky Way this year...but I kept the a9 out tonight, I had been shooting shore birds...some nice color and reflections...I have not used the a9 much for landscape work, it holds up well...

16-35mm would be great for RE. Alfredo’s doing amazing work with his 16-35mm GM. makes me want one. :)

Thanks David! I am so happy I purchased one. So versatile and a sold performer across the board.

I need to win the lotto to satisfy all of my lens wants...17/24 TSE are probably high on the list...FE35ZA...100-400...the list goes on...

I'm getting more and more RE work. i've done 2 this week and one more on monday and another one on tuesday. I'm contemplating trading or selling my FE35F1.4 for the 16-35F4. I don't use the F1.4 too often since i'm shooting portrait outdoor. A lot of space to backup usually. hard to let go though. it's really amazing at F1.4 when you use it.

i dont follow RE but wouldnt you get a lot of distortion with that lens? wouldnt it be better to stitch if you cant get the whole room into 1 frame? maybe with those fancy heads that remove parallax issues?

that's why i'm planning to trade my 35F1.4 for the 16-35F4 and shoot around 20mm.

I can stitch but that's time consuming. I'm trying hard to make everything quick.
