Hope he’s happy with his EOS R. Did not learn much from watching the overlong video other than native glass usually outperforms adapted.

look at the date on the video:

"Travis Harris Photography Published on May 6, 2018"

he was using ancient a9 firmware, from a year ago, prior to the 3.0 late june firmware, that was a watershed moment for sony milc, because it really improved adapted lens af… that firmware eventually trickled down to the other 3rd-gen cameras:

"Improvements in auto focus performance and functionality (ver. 3.0):
-Improves tracking performance of moving subjects in AF-C mode
-Improves auto focus speed in low light
-Adds AF Track Sens as a selectable option for custom key settings
-Adds support for all focus areas when using LA-EA3 mount adaptor
(Focus Area options added: Zone, Expand Flexible Spot, and Lock-on AF)

so here we have sportyaccordy, claiming that a dslr guy who knows nothing about sony, using really old firmware, has somehow defined "the reality of ef glass on the a9", lol

this thread is just another of his pathetic anti-sony diatribes.
