a900 mirror slap - anti-dote: VG

Owning myself an A850 after the A700, the only thing which bothered me was the really loud mirror clack. Looking back from later A99 and A99II I'm still under the impression that the "violent" mechanics of that mirror ruined quite some shots

I observed the effect as well but only with specific body-lens combos, most on the 70-300G. My anti-dote was and remains to add a VG, which worked wonders:
More mass, less vibes: Fixed.

No such issue with my a700, a55 and a99.
Cheers,
Ralf
