I am impressed. Firstly the camera sounds like the ideal nightscape Milky Way type camera which I like to do.

2ndly the camera also records in camera 2K video and also allows the Log 2 which is supposed to be sensational.

The fact of most people not having 4K devices to display the results is temporary limitation as no doubt they will be commonplace within a few years. You can shoot in 4K now and see how wonderful it is later on if it comes down to it. Or buy a 4K computer monitor now.

3rdly you will be able to pull a single image out of a 4K video and it will be the same as a still so AF is less important in the sense that continuous AF is now up to 120 fps.

Greg.
