We used to have an Avon Park here too. Old airfield turned into a drag racing venue. Being built on now......

I'm not even sure what the red car is.... It's on a 'P' registration which puts it at 1996/7.

Its a Mazda MX-5 based kit car copy of a Ferrari 250 GTO.

Email from Imaging Pro

Very interesting

Dear Sony Imaging Pro Support Member,



As you have probably already heard, we recently announced the newest addition to our award-winning Sony α lineup: the α7R IV Full Frame Mirrorless Camera. Featuring the world’s first 61MP sensor in a full-frame camera, the α7R IV achieves another milestone by bringing unprecedented image quality that was previously reserved for medium format cameras. Along with 15 stops of dynamic range, enhanced autofocus performance, and real-time Eye AF in movies, the α7R IV seeks to redefine what’s possible for the professional.

Being a Sony PRO Support member, you have qualified for priority access to the brand-new α7R IV!

However, due to limited inventory and high demand, we cannot guarantee inventory for everyone. Orders will be on a first come, first serve basis, so don’t miss out!

I think an a9II will be announced later this year with higher resolution. Mark Galer kind of hinted at it in his latest video covering the a7RIV. I hope that’s true.

Not a great photo, it was almost dark when I took it, but I finally had a camera handy when this little guy made his nightly appearance. For the last month or so, just at dusk, he has been using my backyard as a highway to where all the grubs must be for his dinner. Luckily Smokey has given him a wide berth and there have been no "incidents"

We had a raccoon in the backyard today. The big cat started growling so we knew something was up :(

This lens isn't as popular as the 28-75. I got a little discount on greentoe and shipped too. No pre-order.

I would have guess wrong, me thinking the 17-28 would be more popular. Shows what I know.

After seeing Gordon Lang’s Tamron 17-28mm photos on Flickr I’m very unimpressed. Soft smudgy borders at 17mm. Thing is 17-28mm is such a small zoom range that my expectation for it is it needs to excel through that entire range.

I’d rather just split the range grab a superb 24GM and have superb total frame IQ than a zoom with a tiny range and not-good 17mm performance.

But that’s only me. I’m sincerely hoping all buyers here end up with a very satisfying-to-them lens!!!

In that focal range I'm easily satisfied. I just need to have it covered in the bag and at the least amount of weight. I can understand where a true landscaper would need closer to perfection.
I was surprised by this sunstar, me thinking it was not so possible with this lens

Now the 200-600mm, I'll be very critical of (or hopefully not) :)

Ah, another reason for me to hold on getting an a7R IV yet. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be my choice, but I’d like an opportunity to weigh it against an a9 II.

Reflecting on Ronny’s beautiful bug photos on FM also has me rethinking my desire for a 200-600. The 100-400GM has an exceptional almost macro-ish MFD that gives the lens lots of close-up photography potential. The 100-400GM is a lot easier to store and pack too.

All I've read so far state the 2-6 is sharper at 600 than the 1-4 + 1.4TC. So bottom line is only reason to own the 2-6 over the 1-4 is a constant need for 600mm.
Macro, pack size abject sharpness at 400mm is really hard to beat.

If Allen's gets 10 in (I'm tenth on their list) then I'll be taking both lenses to Alaska.
If not then the 500PF will be coming along.

In the long run, I think 100-400 is for me. It’s too big as is....can’t deal with the 200-600 size.
