After thinking about it...and looking at specs...I binned the 105mm rental for this weekend...the size of that lens is not going to be something I want to use...and its too close to 85...so I extended my 135GM rental and picked it up today..I have a basketball game to shoot tonight that was not originally on my schedule...so first testing...the dog is the only subject home today...wow...what a lens...it delivers in truck loads...super fast, super accurate, super sharp and destroys backgrounds...sold...w​ill be putting my order in when I get home next week...gotta sell off some stuff and collect some outstanding invoices...but dang...

and has anyone else had LR sort them wrong by capture time...the last 5 in the sequence by file number and what I know to be the last frames...in LR show up out of order with the rest when sorted by time...I have had this issue at the track too.

Awesome, thanks for sharing your test photos and subject, who is as cute as a button I might add.

I think I may have to sell my a7r2 and a7r3 and buy an a9 if nothing else.

EDIT: Button pushed, now to sell some gear. :-)

I mentioned in an earlier post that I was concerned about heat from the chimney of my new lamp and the drop ceiling I have in my kitchen. Safety dectates that there should be 36" of space above the chimney and in my kitchen, there is only 30" clear with the lamp on my kitchen dinnette. So, I got this chimney heatshield which now allows there to be only 24" of clear space above.

I did some err, obvious 'artistic' tweaking to this shot of it mounted on my chimney. :rolleyes:

Another one from the weekend and from today. Baked 1 large 8"and 2 small 4" Panforte di Siena cakes. Still need to sprinkle powdered sugar over.

An August image that I wasn't too sure on at the time. I have several others from the same morning that I felt the same about....

Thanks Gene. She is a good dog. Due to my allergies I am limited on the kinds of animals I can have. Shih-tzu's are one of the breeds that I can be around.

The a9 is a beast, I think you will like it...now that you have the r4... you have quite the collection there...

Thanks Travis. I'm excited to get my new Sony a9 tomorrow. I opted for the 'old' version rather than the a9II and saved $1000 there. That's due to the a9 being on sale at a $500 discount and it was bundled with a $109.99 Sony 64GB SF-G Tough Series UHS-II SDXC Memory Card for free. I'm trading in my a7r II and a7r III to help ease the pain too so now I will be back to owning only two cameras, the a7r IV and the a9.

I don't know if I'll need to update to the newest firmware until it arrives but I plan on downloading it just in case. I'm probably going to be picking the brainpower of you and other a9 users here if I have questions, and most likely, I will.

After owning high megapixel cameras, it will be interesting to get back to a smaller format. One of my favorite cameras I've owned was a Canon 1Ds Mark II and it had a 16.7 megapixel sensor.

I love my a9...I use it a lot. THe old r2 only comes out for landscape duty or high end architecture jobs...anything else is done on the a9...since acquiring it in August of 2017...I have put over 90K frames on it...mostly with electronic shutter and shooting sports and race cars...compared to about 27K on the r2 that was used for the duration of 2017 through now...

If I could only have one body, it would definitely be my A9. I have never had more keepers from one body constantly ever. Paired with the 200-600, it is really my perfect setup for wildlife/birds. That said, I was out this weekend, and happened to also have my RX10M4 with me, and took this one straight up through my sunroof, where the much smaller size comes in very handy :-)

First clear night to try my 200-600 lens + 2x extender. Not the best phase for crater detail but hopefully, I'll get a chance to shoot under a bit more favorable conditions soon.

f13 - 1/100th - iso 100 @ 1200mm

Thank you both. My other half liked this one a lot too. Maybe I should listen more often....
