Hi All

These are a few issues with A7r which are beginning to annoy me.

Start the camera up when I begin walk takes 15/20 seconds to start up ready for shooting.

Leave the camera switched on all the time carry 2 spare Sony batteries.

Happy taking shots when camera will shut down VF and screen just go black have to switch off and then back on to use again.

i've never had to turn off my a7r to bring it back, and i've taken nearly 900 pics with it.

it always comes out of "sleep" mode with a shutter button press.

Another annoying trick camera has,camera left on all the time no sleeping to save battery life. lift camera up to take shot screen on but no info have to wait 5/10 seconds for info appear to shoot.

i wonder if there is some weird correlation between using legacy manual glass and glass that communicates electronically with the camera body.

i only shoot with cheap adapters, so i can't experiment with it, but it might be worth checking out.

When Finished shooting turn camera off and camera sounds like its taking 2 shots.

i have seen that, it's a bit unsettling...
