a7Rv: wow!
12

My a7Rv arrived today (finally!). I went to an open mic at a brewery this evening to get some test shots in and play with the menus, etc. Nothing fancy, they have a heated tent set up with crappy LED string lights (the kind that flicker). I have a full plate of dive bar punk rock shows this weekend, I wanted to get at least a little shooting in and see what I'm in for.

I started with my A-mount Zeiss 24/2 + LEA-5 adapter. I've used this for years on my a99ii so I am quite familiar with it. The AF tracking is unlike anything I have ever used before— just phenomenal. I don't even know if I have it set up to take the fullest advantage of this feature, but it worked very well with only one or two missed shots (and those were right at the beginning).

Then, I went for my new 50/1.2.

Holy mother of pearl. As Yoda would say, "Upped my game I have."
