Gary Dean Mercer Clark: What EVF lag? Been shooting with A77 and now A77mk 2 and find NO slow down with it. I turn off image review and it shoots just like an OVF. The A77 Mk 2 is the fastest and most versatile camera I've shot with hands down. It might edge out the 7D mk2---but who cares which camera gets bragging rights as fastest? I don't. Both cameras are stellar. My fellow pro buddies shoot Canon 7DMk 2 and I shoot Sony. Let's be honest---these cameras are amazing and make shooting moving subjects a pleasure. Like to see unbiased reviews and real objective focus and speed tests, but the A77mk2 depending on how you choose to shoot high speed action, type of lens, third party or not, screw drive versus hypersonic lens, is going to give you stellar results. There is no limitation for magazine work, double spread photos with either camera. Just be honest. The EVF is fantastic. May not be someone's cup of tea, but I love it. These claims of a lag with EVF as unsubstantiated. The original ones were lousy--but not the A77 series. Competition drives innovation! Your turn Canon!

I have "Auto Review" off and I have some lag when shooting hummingbirds. It seems more noticeable than when I was using an A 57. It doesn't stop me from getting good shots, so I'm not that bothered by it, but truth be told it's there. If there is some setting besides " Auto Review" off, I'd like to know what.

Great shot Percy. I find the eyes of the Longhorn beetles very interesting.

On Osprey looking for small prey in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (6 comments in total)

This is a great Osprey shot. The intensity in the eyes, the Talons clinching, and the pose made this one of my favorites.

RuthC: Just when the Bird-Grumblers thought they had seen the last of hummingbirds for this year, you come along with this beautiful capture of a hummingbird in search of nectar. Wonderful colours and textures in the bird's feathers and its bright black eye, while the deep blue salvia balances the picture really well. cmantx, a well-deserved second place in the challenge. Ruth :-)

Thanks Ruth. It pains me to say that I have at least one species of hummingbird year round. I got some shots today of this very bird and another going to a Cape Honeysuckle Flower.

Congratulations on your well deserved first place. I'm curious as to what is reflected in the water to cause such colors.

Nicely shot. I like the dark background that frames the spider and the color in the plant.
