Re: Walk Around Lens for A99 II

Well it has finally arrived (On Friday afternoon) !  And then the heavens have opened here for the last two days leaving me almost completely housebound ... PLUS I had committed to help a friend work on some renovations today!

So all in all I've taken 28 shot so far!  [When there was a break in the rain] 

Early impressions ...

Such a SOLID body ... feels so good in the hands!  [Who'd want a tiny little A7  ]

Focussing with the 70 -400 G on is amazingly quick.  And ISO 3200 certainly appears to be usable!

Took this during a brief break in the rain ... took the ISO up to 3200 ... something I wouldn't do with the Sony  A 77 II.

A previous shot I took in better weather with the A77 II

Taken with the A77 II ... with an hour or two wait  to get one decent BIF 

This little guy stayed for just a second ... but the focus seems good ... and it wouldn't have been usable with the A 77 II at such high ISO  ... but LR seems to deal with noise in the image so very easily.

I have to go to work tomorrow now ... damn damn damn!

So looking forward to getting to know the A99 II 

A big thanks to everyone for their advice and support!
