I just bought a copy of Lightroom 6.5 from Adobe. It is awful. Overtime I use a slider it is flickering and very hard to see what the actual image is going to be. I have been using on1 instead and feel that my Lightroom upgrade was just a waste of money. Has anyone else had this problem??

ChrissyOne: I was in Luxembourg last week for the first time, and spent much of the week shooting with my A7RII, 24-70 and 70-200 lenses.

I couldn't wait for Canon to move on mirrorless any longer. I jumped to Sony and, so far, I have almost no complaints with the camera. Some of the controls are a bit fiddling - the front finger dial seems to always allude me. But that's about it.

If there's any doubt about Sony's low-light performance, well, take a look at the photos above. There is only one tripod shot in that entire set (can you find it?). The rest are all hand-held. 6400 ISO yields totally usable results with gorgeous, film-quality grain. I have never used anything like this. It's fantastic.

And the autofocus nailed almost every single frame. I can't talk highly enough about it. I had rented the original RX-1 a few years ago, and passed on buying one because the AF was so terrible. Not so the 7RII. It was bang-on every time.

Rent one.

Thank Chrissy. I have decided to get the RX100 3 or 4. I think I will wait for the compact until I am ready to give up my Nikon gear and the lenses are what I want. I have changed my mind so many times with my research but small is what I want so.

Fabulous images. Can I ask a dumb question? I have Nikon D7100 and all primes that I love using (fav 50 1.4) and get sharp images. This is a hobby but I love it. Taught myself PS while recovering from cancer 8 years ago and was hooked. I am 74 and small in stature. I find my Nikon heavy to take everywhere now. Thinking of dipping into my savings and getting the a7rII for the size. What about lenses? I read that this camera can fit in a pocket but surely not with the lens on. I like to always have my camera with me. Can you comment please Chrissy.
