JoaoPedroAB: Hi, someone knows when Samyang will start manufacturing lenses for Canon R (I suppose that Nikon users would like to know it too)? Thanks

Did Canon ever license the EF protocol? Does the 3rd party still need to reverse engineer the protocol?

I think Sony did, and that's why their 3rd party lenses are able to operate at the native AF speed.

Jersey Shore: It would be fantastic if the A7rIIIa got an upgraded autofocus system to bring it closer to the A7rIV. But I'm sure that's asking for too much.

Clearly, the A7rIII is still in production and is not just old stock being sold off. That being the case, we can always hope for an AF upgrade because, for many, 42mp makes much more sense than 61mp.

Hm, when Sony updated RX100V to RX100VA, the VA got a better processor. The faster processor "should" help out the AF.

I don't do sky replacements and such, but it seems like they put most of their development resources in the "A.I." part. What I have problem with the software is that it's still not utilizing the GPU as its competitors. When I make a small change, and it takes many seconds to update what was changed on the screen, the usability suffers. I don't mind (or care really) that the feature is there, but not at the expense of the fundamentals.
