Wow itshimitis, A7RII!!

AF will still hunt in poor light, more points when you are using a native FE lens. At the moment am disappointed in the long exposure noise when you go beyond a certain amount of time. Where my 645Z will not grumble too much and leave me tiny hot pixels that are easy to clean up from the shadows, the MKII leaves much larger ones that are much more difficult to clean up. Even where you use Long exposure NR, you will see more noise than I'm used to on a particularly long exposure. Below 4 mins is fine with LENR but too much above that and things get hairy. So Sony has some work to do on a firmware update.

Much has been made of the 11+7 lossy raw, and I'd like to see 14 bit lossless compressed raw, but I'd rather the long exposure noise was treated first. The lower and lossy bits can exhibit themselves in blue skies if you underexpose, but I do see this sometimes with the 645Z too on 14 bit. The mkII is a little more susceptible to this, so care is needed in processing.

The quieter shutter is great and the new EVF is definitely an improvement. The 5 axis IBIS really helps, I have steady hands so I am often able to handhold at 1/15 at 35mm but the IBIS really helps with consistency.

My Minolta 85 f/1.4 and Sony 50 f/1.4 arrived this morning. Haven't had an opportunity to test the 50 yet, but it does work.

Took the dog up the garden, he doesn't mind being my guinea pig as he gets a run around in exchange for it...

First two are wide open at 1.4.





This one is stopped down to f/2.8



One thing I will say is that you have to be careful with the saturation, as they go all Velvia 50 very quickly and the contrast is very good...
