Hi, I've just read your post and can't resist to ask how old minolta's which you have perform optically on A7RIV. Does 60MPx are not too much for those old lenses as for an resolution resolve? Wish to download some full resolution files if you have posted some ware online. I'm bit surprise that you opt for Monster la-ea4r instead la-ea5 as you have r iv..

I had the LA-EA4R prior to getting the A7RIV. I will probably sell it. It worked well yesterday with the Minolta 135 F2.8 "Pocket Rocket".

60 MP full-frame is about the same size pixels as 24 MP APS-C cameras. I would like even smaller pixels. I bought the FE 200-600 OSS and 1.4X prior to the A7RIV.

Minolta may not have made the highest resolution lenses, but most are more than sharp enough at some setting.

I ordered another Minolta 200 F2.8 and their 80-200 F2.8.
