About the time Canon announces Sony will release the a7000....and that might be sooner than any of us would
think. As a wildlife shooter I'd jump on the a7000.

I just looked up the weight of the new Sigma. My back started hurting.

Still no word on the crop of the 4K. Still no word on the type of codec or whether it’ll be MJPEG. Single card slot. Weak battery. No lenses. But better than their other releases so far.

:-P

too many times, too many times...... most obvious would be no native lenses, and ridiculously poor release cycle. It's like it's meant to be a secondary camera, canon simply wont provide the lenses ;-)a

It's time to tackle my phobia of printing my photos!! I've been throwing money away telling people I have never printed my images, so I am not selling them!

I have one of those too, no complaints at all with picture quality. Granted, the only places I have to compare with are Walgreens/Costco/Shutt​erfly type prints, no fancy high end print shops, but the Pro-100 blows the ones i've used out of the water.

Daniel you said 'ability to crop on the a7r III, but the better AF and ability to focus with the 2X TC on the 100-400' and that is the quandary. Remember not long ago we went to
Delaware to add Short-eared Owls to our portfolio. We just could not close the distance to them (gov. regulations/NWR) and though the a9 could give me every wing position at 20fps
I couldn't crop for a final image without loosing too much detail. the Riii let me crop enough for an image. Well you know it's hard shooting when 800mm was not enough to reach them.
So bottom line for wildlife shooters IMHO is just close do you think you can get to the targets you intend to shoot. Here is an example of where 800mm was just fine I think (using the a9,
and if I didn't like that wing position I have over 30 more variants because I followed this bierd for well over a second).

Another thought. If AF-C tracking is the dominant need the a9 is in another league over the Riii, they really do not compare. With the blackout free EVF and those frame rates there is nothing else
out there that comes close and you will think the Riii is loud with its mechanical compared and for fast moving BIF/race cars/athletes I don't think you want e-shutter on the Riii.

Just noticed I didn't denoise the background layer, sorry. I'll do that before this image hits Flickr.

Thanks for sharing. How do you find the "blackout" on the a7r III? Down here in Florida I'm spoiled to be able to get closer to wildlife then anywhere else I've been so reach hasn't been a huge issue, even when I was limited to 400mm, but I may be moving in the next 6 months so it's more of a consideration. I feel like if I used the a9 I wouldn't want to use anything else...


Just a thought from Daniel

Daniel I set the Riiii to 8fps to minimize the blackout and it is super tolerable compared to the Rii.
BUT if you have been using the a9 then it will seem quite muted....it's all relative. The speed of the Riii
over the Rii is akin to the speed of the a9 over the Riii. That should translate into the a9 being a super sonic
space craft and the Riii being the first jet engine air plane compared to the propeller driven Rii.

It’s still very cold (for me anyway! It’s -2C today) but no snow. The snow we got in January/February was more than usual. It didn’t snow once last year

Hehe that's 28F and skinny dipping weather here ;)
Truthfully with the campervan our shower is outside the back.....something we learned over a month in s.Africa-even the high class lodges we stayed at had outside showers and my coldest was at 10K feet in Colorado at 22F/-5.5C. Don't doddle!
