I'm considering getting the A7RIV and I mainly to macro photography. My only concern (besides the price 😅) is that diffraction might significantly diminish the value of having a 61mp sensor as I often shoot at narrower apertures (e.g. f8-f11 or so). Now that they're out in the wild, does anyone have any experience in this regard? Thanks :D

Hi guys, I have been contemplating to upgrade to E-mount for a while. I'm interested in the new A7r 4 despite few thing that I did not like. I was blown a way be the Eye-AF and tracking capabilities. I do mainly patriot and landscape.. but sometimes when I do few sport/wildlife, I want a camera that can fare well in this situation. My current A99II does a decent job in this regard.Just wanna know how much better the A7r4 would be in fast sport/wildlife compared to the A99II? Other question:If...

Hi there, I currently own a Sony SLT-a77 so I think it's time to upgrade. I have two questions. 1. Sony a99 II, Sony a7R III or Sony a7R IV? Photography is a hobby for me and I dont want to spend too much if I don't have to but I also don't want to cheap out. Things I know: a99 II is full frame but fits a-mount lens (the photos will still be cropped unless I buy full frame lenses Also a7R III vs. a7R IV.... 42 vs. 61 mp...and I would have to buy an adapter for a-mount lenses or spend $$$$$$...

Thinking of moving into Sony system with the A7R IV (Love the crop-ability and AF speed spec wise but have not tested yet). i am enthusiast who takes scenery, macros and my kids ( somehow gifted with the Speed force, no idea who they got it from). Considering the following (ignoring budget): Option A: 1) F2.8 24-70 GM 2) F2.8 70-200 GM Option B: 1) F4 24-105 G 2) F1.8 135 GM As per conversation research with other photographers in my neighborhood (Cannon / Nikon). Many said there are no...

As the lossless compression is probably the most important feature of A7R IV, which we did not get ;-) I'm again thinking about converting uncompressed RAWs do DNG on import. Just to clarify I'm not going to use Sony cRAWs - just want to have all those 14 bits ;-) R4's files are huge and lossless compression in DNG shrinks them almost twice - this is an option to seriously consider. As far as I know the RAW data itself is not altered when converting to DNG, but lots of metadata is lost (focus...

Hello All, Is the Sony A7RIV reads out the full sensor and down-sample image (like Sony A7 III or Nikon Z6) or using an other method? I used to focus only on the photography part of the cameras, but recently I started to do video too. Thanks!

Quick question. Is there any way to shoot at a lower resolution RAW file while still keeping the photo full frame? I know about the APS-C cropped mode, but I was wondering if I could get, say a 30MP RAW file from a full frame capture? Not sure if this would even be technically possible with a bayer sensor. Thanks!
