Pretty cool/ interesting. Makes the case for legacy lenses, too!

I had no idea the sync speed on the Q was 1/30. What is the reasoning for this? There goes me thinking about experimenting with it on some upcoming photo shoots triggering off camera flashes. But might still be fun to try it out

pghwarrior23 the sync speed is actually 1/13 with any lens except premium lenses ( 01 prime and zoom). Only the premium lenses have a leaf shutter to bypass the inbody electronic shutter and allow 1/2000 flash sync.

It is a good article. Worth reading and studying. He really likes the Q.

1/2000 sync speed on 01 lens? WOW! I apparently need to play with some flashes and my Q!
