Good to know. I think what was discovered before that's vulnerable is the battery are which they address on the A7RIV. dang GAS again. lol

Remember with the Riv you're getting a hidden a6400 inside :)

I’m waffling a bit. An a7R IV as a priority purchase is gaining traction in my mind. One huge benefit I hadn’t really thought much about is the big improvement in DR from a7R II to a7R IV. It’s at least a full stop improvement. The a7R II DR was actually a slight downgrade from the original a7R.

DR was my number 2 decision criteria ..... wish it was a stop more than the 3 just to be able to say "neener" but then again more mp and still pulling 15 is pretty good. I havent pulled my 2 shutter count but its going to be end of life if I keep it too much longer for the way I shoot first ask questions later. #1 was new sensor. I could never get over the sensor being the same major component in the 2 to 3.

Third reason was the Now I get to use the same battery in my A9 and R4 yey

Tam1728.
A bit more solid than the 28-75. Almost same size.
I can tell on the trip north I'll use it constantly.
IQ? Good enough for me, but I don't pixel peep landscapes=more going for
the overall feel.

Some snaps from today-
First up a park adjacent to my neighborhood on the right (you'll
see what I mean about living in perpetual cloudland)
Next a coliseum shot

More from the Tam1728.
Inside the mancave at 2.8. Don't know if I hit focus on the orange
float, and one more from the colisium at 2.8

Last one for today, patio I surfaced this summer. It's actually part of a large
water collection diversion system necessary here in rainland.

You all know what I shoot, so judging this type of lens is not in my realm.
But sharp enough for me. Def. light and small for what it is.
I'll ask Poof is she wants the 16-35/4, if not B/S thread at FM.

thanks for the samples, mine is going to be permanently mounted to my gimbal  :p

Probably still use my 12-24 for landscape shooting, but that bokeh, as little as it is, makes a difference for video capture, and being a IF zoom is a blessing.

I dont have an issue with f4 zooms for my videos, however there's only one that fits my little criteria and I own it, the 12-24. That exposed element on a gimbal that I just tend to knock around, probably my lamest concern of that lens, I need a filter. Secondly, the size is a tad too big, the Tamron is not drastically smaller, but being more compact does make a difference, the 12-24 girth can be problematic at times. It's basically a bag of primes for my usage, and doubles as a primary travel landscape lens, about to go on another trip, may or may not have much photography. Sure, I do like the range of 12-24 more, 12mm is wild for stills or video, and can create a lot of motion. If there was an easy way to front filter this lens, I might even pass on the Tamron, and suck it in. Unfortunately, dont know of any easy workarounds.

I've tried several times to find a spare hood for the FE 12-24 to act as sacrifice for filter placement post a bit of cutting.....just can't find one.
Yeah nothing can touch the 12-24 but hammer for nails and drivers for screws.

Tam1728 again.
Forgot this one.
Close focus is superb.
Bokeh? I bet Eriet will hate it.
But I didn't process for bokeh. To me most bokeh is easy to minipulate.

Mid-september we'll see how it does on 61mpx :)

Im conflicted on your pics. Think they are good overall but the one concern is the colors look "muddy" not sure how to describe technically lol. Glad you have one though!!!
