    Sony A7C vs. A7 iv

    I'm looking at getting a more modern Sony body, mostly for better handling and speed, especially tracking and C-AF. The A7C would be a cheaper alternative and the AF appears to be great, but the A7 iv is a tempting commination of upgrades and a few extra MP doesn't hurt. Any opinions on this?

    Sony LA-EA5 on A7 IV

    Finally got the adapter to use my Maxxum lenses on the 7 IV. Had only a short time to test as the light faded tonight. Tried out a 50/1.7, 70-210 and 75-300. It works very well, probably better than on an original Maxxum body. AF is much snappier than I expected, and yes, tracking works as...

    Sony RX10 Mk IV -- nice focus move

    Normally when I go out for a stroll with the RX10 MkIV, I set it up in P mode with a central focus rectangle. Yesterday, while walking at Oakwood Cemetery, the spotter-in-chief points up and says "hawk." (She noticed it because of a shadow traversing the ground; she's uncanny like that.) I...
