My a7IV is just arrived (ex EOS RF system user)

Okay, I got my first package... a7IV, 35mm 1.4 GM, 20mm 1.8G, Sigma 85mm 1.4DG DN.

After first day some my findings...

- ergonomic is okay. Nothing bad but I'm not thrilled either. I'll need some time to adapt I guess.

- AF is fantastic. Working flawlessly. Currently for lifestyle and commercial shootings I found Flexible Spot and Expand Flexible Spot in combination with face/eye detection great for Focus Area choice.

- Menu system is a bit confusing. It took me 10 minutes to figure out how to turn off AF confirmation beep ... Sony call it "audio effects" come on

- Shutter sound is much nicer than with EOS R

35 1.4 GM and 20mm 1.8 are gem lens. Beautiful optics. Don't have enough time to tray Sigma yet.

- That's all for now. Next week I will probably have my first commercial photo shoot with the new system so there will be more to say. O yes, I almost forget. Newest versions of Lightroom and CaptureOne still can't open a7IV raw's so I guess I have to meet with Sony Catalyst for the first time

All the best
