    You’re not honestly shooting it at 20fps?

    Never turn it off on the A9. Apart from with flash and mechanical shutter.

    mmmmm. I’m not bothered about video so it’s a possible. Size also not an issue as I hate tiny lenses.

    Wedding photographers using Sony

    The biggest issue for me as a wedding photographer would be the lack of a dual-card option with Canon.

    I just tape down any aperture rings. Never used them and always use the front wheel for it instead. Stops them getting knocked.

    On the basis that we had pages of PC vs Mac tedium I don’t see why it’s a problem.

    New camera is of zero interest to me. I prefer to retain profit rather than hand it over to Sony every time they release a new body. Genuinely all I want on my A9’s is a firmware update to allow a colour AF point.

    I just want RED FOCUS POINTS on my A9. That’s all.

    Welcome to post-Brexit exchange rates and prices. As an aside the DP Review article mentions a 35mm f1.4GM which I must have missed.

    It’s a misunderstanding of the word extraordinary. It’s used in accounting to define a usually one-off loss that doesn’t occur from operation activities. Something like an earthquake, or a fire. It’ll be absorbed and as it’s not usually a repeatable loss isn’t considered a risk to the...

    The tracking on the new v5 firmware is hilariously good Also eye-AF without having to select it = win

    The 55 left me cold. Not sure why as it’s super sharp etc but it just had a clinical look I didn’t like. I far prefer the 50mm Planar. Much costlier and heavier though.

    It's not a dig. The best advice I was ever given was: 'Don't think you need every lens and every focal length covered - everyone does and you really don't. Use as few as you can. Learn those focal lengths and you'll compose the shot before you have the camera up.' He was so right. After some...

    Do you not all find this constant second-guessing about what lens you’re using/buying/missing exhausting? Where’s the emphasis on the craft?

    Good AF can’t save crap technique but after 4 years with D750’s it’s not even close to the A9. If a shot if OOF it’s down to me and not the camera.

    Nope. Not a focal length I'd spend that sort of money on. It would have very limited use for me.

    Manual focus at f1.2 - lovely if you have the time to nail it. Won't be for me.

    Sony A7iii to Nikon Z6

    If you can't get stunning images with an A73, or a Z6, or an EOS-R (or whatever) it's not the camera. Taking the sort of financial hit you would on selling up and moving (at best) sideways for that little top-screen makes no sense.
