any feedback ? is this a "dumb" question?

new to the hobby... and 1st camera... recently retired and plenty of time to learn...

have camera A9 II setup... exactly like Mark Smith - Sony a9 Bird In Flight / Wildlife Photography Setup and Usage Guide setup & having great success... took about 2 hours to setup, watching his great vid, over & over...  will upgrading... cause me to lose what I have setup... ?

Thanks !

i'd update it immediately, maybe back the camera settings up to an sd card first: ILCE-9M2 | Help Guide | Save/Load Settings (sony.net)

looks like the af is off on that bird photo, have you been able to get sharp pics with stationary objects?

I do mine immediately. Why keep older code with the unfixed problems a moment longer?
