What was rather entertaining about the 11-month old video was listening to this Floridian boast that he’s a professional photographer then disparage YouTubers like they’re a despicable breed; meanwhile I’ve seen lots of Sony shooters, from Jason Lanier to Jason Vong and others shoot EF glass on Sony bodies for years, long before the updates and they never experienced all the problems seen in the video. And to top it all off, the following day, to watch Nikon shooter Jared Polin not only take dozens of perfectly focused pictures one right after the other with the 135 GM, and not only sharp (blown up several hundred percent and viewed on a 55” TV) but arguably nicer images overall than the ‘pro’. 😂

Just because they didn't report the issues doesn't mean they didn't have them. I have been shooting EF glass on Sony bodies since 2016 and have experienced some of the issues he did. Maybe I just haven't pleased the Sony FE gods with enough praise.

If you have indeed used EF glass on Sony bodies, you would have known that this guy was out of line. Some part of his presentation might be true with the firmware he used, but most of the stuff in that video was laughable.
