Last shot from Pedernales Falls. Interesting face shadow on the left rock.

So when I missed my loaner package from Sony I was forced to improvise a bit for a wedding...borrowed a friends a6000 for use as a second body and packed the 24GM I was planning to sell. It actually worked out nicely because the wedding was on a Yacht that was so cramped that the 24GM got the most use.....and f1.4 out of an UWA means I don't have to push the ISO as hard. When you're at ISO3200 at f1.4, 2 stops starts to matter a lot and this is why I prefer fast primes on two bodies over f2.8 zooms for weddings.

24GM was also paired with the a6000 during the ceremony, which became a 35mm equivalent and it worked out very nicely. I'd totally be cool with APS-C for a second body.

Speaking of that lens Randall, it's still trucking along.

So everyone knows what a Drone Fly is. These little guys are in the backyard.
I discovered I can never see them (super super small) until I sit down (I carry a pad when
I got out) and just start looking around. Sooner, but more usually later one will catch my eye.
Then I hope their body position and light are OK.

You have nerves of steel. I could never hold the camera steady enough to get a shot like that.

I am surprised you didn't use the tiny hand controller to move the drone fly where you wanted though.  :p

Managed to find 10 mins there to check my 16-35 GM. Looks to be well centred at 16mm and its pretty good at 35 (one corner ever so slightly but barely noticeable). Im happy with that. Just need to check it on a few normal shots at f/5.6 and f/8 to be sure its totally fine. The previous copy of this lens I got was an absolute disaster and wouldnt give sharp images at f/8!

Woot you got a good one this time.

Haha! Funny :)
Not steel though....getting shaky in the aging....frames per second then select the sharpest of the bunch.

Hmm, you know, I have never used continuous shooting when taking a photograph. This is something I need to try when shooting both macro and birds.

Double hmm. Maybe I should consider getting an a9 instead of the 200-600G to allow for higher fps in continuous shooting. -?

Poof likes the 100400, aka the 1-4. I want 600mm thus the rational for the 2-6.
If it was just me would be hard to see owning both...but travel size vastly favors the 1-4 plus sneaking into venues where they
might frown on the looooonnnnngggger 2-6.
I think for MFD/pseudo macro the 1-4 wins again and Alex Phan has already stated for BIF the 1-4 wins.
Since my trip will hopefully bring back a bruin AF-tracking head on won't be an issue (I hope a bear won't be running full speed
directly at me, if so I'll have to shoot Poof in the knee).

In September you might be able to get the a9ii pre'd.

For Eddie/Gene (they seem to favor macro more than most).

Here is a Hover Fly, which is really a bee, and it is 2-3 times the size of the Drone Fly posted earlier.
Scale provided by fingers, I had them handy ;)
p.s. Eddie, just know I went out in the heat/humidity just for you.
p.s.s. used an extend tube, 16mm I think.
Manual focus of course.
Even the 90macro has difficulty on this dinky flyers.

I have been trying to get a shot of one of these Black Skimmers here at the beach for three years...the first two years I never saw one...then we started to see them, but never when I had my camera...then last year I had my camera and they only showed up when I was not shooting...and that has been the theme this year and then I finally caught one...I was taking pictures of my daughter and as I lowered the camera they flew by, I put the camera up and the a9 caught them...first frame...then locked on, but I liked this frame the most of the set...would have preferred to shoot them head on, but I will take what I can get...big time crop, 2200 pixels left over of the original 6000 from the a9.

And focus peaking And I pushed the button I programmed to zoom in to focus (I use
upper left button beside menu button).

Thanks for the details. On my a7r3, I've programmed the C2 button to zoom in to focus. I use it mostly when the camera is on a tripod so a top of camera button works well for me.
