    I use AF-C and the focus lock medium spot setting (A7 mkiii). I point the AF box onto the area I want in focus, hold the AF button, recompose and take the shot.

    I agree with you on this. Nikon are starting to struggle financially and if they want to interest people in their camera systems then they need to do more than just meet the basic level. The kit lens with this should have been blowing the competition away.

    Unless you need IBIS, record video & need mic and headphone ports then the A6600 isn’t worth it over the A6400. The A6600 has a larger capacity battery but you can just buy a spare one with the £600 you saved :)

    I’m currently debating about getting a small APS-C camera to use for family walk about & travel portraits and MTB rides out with my son. I currently have a Sony A73 & Canon G7X MKII and I’m looking for something that sits in the middle. The Sony is too big to lug around and the Canon doesn’t...

    Look like he's using a Canon Prime telephoto lens with a Canon Teleconvertor for longer reach.

    Yeah that’s probably the inflation increase. The DS version of the RF 85 F1.2 is £3.2k :eek: Time to follow your own sig advice :confused:

    The new RF lenses are typically a lot more expensive the older EF counterparts. They have been improved optically, include a new control ring and are usually lighter than the equivalent EF examples. e.g. the new RF 100-500 is about 400 grams lighter than 100-400. Back when I was starting out in...

    Looks like you have (over) sharpened the Bokeh (front and back) which is producing a strange looking effect.

    They were referring to the (useable) video features and I thought they had a fair point :ROFLMAO:
