Roger Great shot of a very beautiful child. Always helps when you start with a good looking subject.

How are you finding the A7RV?


Thank you Wade

In all true, I am having mixed feelings about the A7RV: IQ and operability is as expected but AF disappoints me : The slow unstacked sensor and shutter lag is a significant handicap for this new AI AF. I have had the camera for a couple days but I already have hundreds of OOF test-shots of my kids just moving around at home...

worse af than both the a7riii and fuji medium format body in your gear list??

It is much better recognising and tracking. I know it is not A9x/A1 but I expected AF to keep up better on kids. Some examples (the A7RV has this nice feature of showing the green box when displaying images on camera):

OOF both. Green square couldn't keep up tracking.

it does look like it slightly missed eyeaf in that photo you posted.

Happening often. A couple more examples (green box right on the eye, but still OOF)

On the other hand, the operational upgrades are really nice. It feels great to do a handheld shot at 3,2":

I don´t want to derail the weekly thread much. I am still learning the camera, iron out my own errors and decide if it works for me.
