    The videos I see on the A7RIII the option is SORT(RAW/JPG) and you specify slot 1.

    It's just reversed on the A9

    You won't be disappointed :)
    I haven't take much images with the 70-200mm f2.8 GM which I can share but they are very sharp.

    Correct,

    I have asked @jonneymendoza to pass on the below list of firmware improvements to Sony at the Photography Show NEC.

    Most of the features are already in the new A7R III and A7 III.

    - Anti-Flicker
    - Picture Profiles incl S-Log2/3 and HDR-Log
    - Photo rating & Burst Photo Grouping
    - 4k & 6K Photo Mode
    - Eye-AF - Selective Mode for Picking Preffered Eye / Face
    - Time Lapse / Intervelometer.
    - Better SD Card Management which includes dual SD buffer/write indicators.
    - Update Touch Screen to include swipe to review images, add full Touch GUI functionality and better selection of AF points.

    I've set up modes 1 and 2

    Both shutter priority starting at 1/160th
    Auto ISO

    1 = Moveable expandable point, no face detection
    2 = Wide Area AF, face detection

    How best to use eye detection?

    And recommendations for C1, C2, C3?

    yeah it doesn't make business sense to have one camera that does it all.

    Can always live in hope but two different Sony rep's including my camera supplier said Sony will be working on the Sony A9 firmware .... so not sure what that actually means in reality .... Sony A9 II perhaps lol :D

    Not the A9 but I believe the A7riii shares similar weather sealing to the A9. Water in a battery compartment = not a good combo.

    I also don't think pro support gives you "special water damage warranty" because that'd be just wrong on quite a few levels if they did.

    Ok I can't find a way to save my camera setup, so I could recall it in the event of failure or use it on my second camera...

    There was a dude on this forum, his Sony a7r I think died from getting slightly wet, Sony warranty didn't want anything to do with it. They pulled the weather sealing claims from their site and promo stuff as more reports came through.

    Not just sony, I don't think any manufacturer will touch any body with water damage. Any warranty from any manufacturer that I know off doesn't cover any kind of water damage for ILCs. If any one can find me one, I may just buy their gear just use in the rain.

    It just doesn't make sense for them to!! because one could well use any unsealed lens/adapter/body cap/banana peel on their camera mount and then claim otherwise. How will they or you prove anything!

    Assign eye af to the focus hold button on the lens works well, though if not present I assign it to the ael button.

    So my Barcelona trip might be back on as my dog couldn't have the op today as she now has severe liver disease as well meaning anaesthetic is too risky so we have to get that under control first.

    Anyway, I thought I might hire the A7Riii and 24-70mm to take away to try it out, camera alone is £192 for 3 days :eek: :eek: Don't think I'll bother :LOL:

    Have you looked into the best way to get into Barcelona from the airport yet? Any idea if Taxis are on a meter or if you have to haggle?

    Best way is just to get the underground trains. Costs a few euros.

    thank you.

    no i know its very capable like most of the 85mm's still in production. i guess having shot a lot with the g master & 85mm f1.2 in recent times i was worrying that this little lens was going to fall well short.
