    Then don't buy the camera. Don't install the firmware. New models will have the firmware installed. No choice No. It is Sony's product. They are free to do with it as they wish. All manufacturers ...

    Exactly. There have been plenty of cameras through the years that disable the use of third party batteries through firmware update. Is what it is. If you happened to buy a counterfeit battery that ...

    that sucks. no most likely. You need HSS anytime the shutter speed exceeds the flash sync speed probably not. Then again for most of those shots you are just trying to fill the shadows and a little ...
  • Reports from independent users. Read from users on the Sony forums who have used a Sony a9 and another flagship model. It is interesting. Not everything is perfect for Sony nor is everything ...
  • No such thing as "no noise" So you own the g9? The noctitron collects a lot more light than the 12-60. Then again the much less expensive 85 1.8 collects even more. There are also objective ...
  • Shoot. It is extremely unlikely a card will fail. Then again if you are doing this as a professional shoot and redundancy is expected then follow pompeos suggestions. Umm.......it is a early but ...
  • I am sure. The a7ii was an absolute dissapointment in Caf and low light. Combine the two and it was a disaster. You had a fast lens but with that body it didn't matter When I owned an a7ii I also ...
  • I am NOT trying to convince you or anyone else to switch brands. Have you used the a9 or the a7iii? What body/bodies are you using? This is just a curiousity thing. What mirrorless have you tried? ...

    You do have a small point. I am hoping that photo got messed up when converted to the web
  • Replied in hey Tony
    have you used the a9? although it really wouldn't matter mush if you use telephotos cause Sony doesn't have many to choose from. If you did use it what lenses were on hand? The Nikon z7 Af review ...
  • 2.8? even with the nifty fifty......? kind of important. You could get better af performace in EFs mount you would have to evaluate the JPEGs yourself and see if any tweaks or adjustments suit you. ...

    I actually thought I commented in this thread earlier but maybe I deleted when I saw you had an xt3 on order. Thought that you had purchased. Curious to see what your thoughts are on the a7iii
  • Cause you keep repeating that they aren't up to DSLR standards in Caf and low light. I really don't think you know what you are talking about. I actually mean that as politely as I can. You were ...
  • But you want to spend $1,000 for 10 to 12 games with no assurances of quality.........your world. A lot of pros have equipment that costs exponentially more than your budget and years of ...
  • Fair enough. The a7riii doesn't track as well. I wouldn't call it "bad" though. If you want best tracking then you need to go a9, D5, 1dxii Yes......but I think you are confusing bodies. Part of ...
  • Ha...... Ok. It can be confusing. There are members here that haven't figured it out after years of explanations. Now.......here is one last note. An old myth is "you need big pixels for good low ...
  • Yup. BUT it is never a matter of JUST the amount of pixels. It is also the size of the pixels. Those ONLY 10mp will still be somewhat competitive with smaller formats because the pixels are very ...

    I did not know that...... As far as opinions we are on the same page. Not that I am criticizing those that prefer a top LCD. I raised this post as a legitimate question to the community. I fully ...
  • It's no problem. Perhaps I sounded too impressed by them And there are even cheaper flashes BUT it seems the OP is trying to thread the needle of performance to price Depends on the model. They ...
  • Replied in Thanks
    Very well BUT they come at Avery steep costs. Of course to some degree you get what you pay for Gotcha. You are talking about the overall performance envelope I get your point and your not getting ...
