New recording from Everyone Orchestra, more of a collective than a band. Sounds great!
I saw them here a few years ago with a few of the people on this recording in the group.

This lineup includes:
Conductor Matt Butler invited past collaborators—musical friends like drummer Jon Fishman (Phish), keyboardist/pianist Marco Benevento, Al Schnier (moe.), Jen Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band), guitarist Steve Kimock, saxophonist Jeff Coffin (Dave Matthews Band), vocalist/percussionist Jans Ingber (The Motet), mandolinist Jamie Masefield (Jazz Mandolin Project) and bassist Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green)

(Un)popular Opinion: Pentax AF Doesn't Suck

I recently shot a mountain bike race with a K-3 & Tamron 70-200 and a K-1ii & D FA 24-70.
I used AF-C on both cameras and while not perfect, I find I can work with it.
If I was a dedicated sports shooter, especially indoors, I'd probably get a better performing system in terms of AF.

But for me shooting outdoors for a few events a year it works well enough.

Two days of MTB racing, if anyone is interested, is posted here:
https://www.mattb.net/halfgrowler2019
https://www.mattb.net/fullgrowler2019

The many similar shots are for racer photos. I was trying to get a shot of every single rider.
I definitely had some AF failures with a handfull of missed shots. I just make a point of getting those particular riders at another spot.
Most of the time it was predictable and good enough.

Wild iris and a banger of a sunset in a flooded field is not a bad combo.

I grabbed another yesterday just standing in the middle of the street but on the less traveled end of Main. :)

Not too bad right here. I was in a crosswalk in the middle turning lane. I tried to be quick but a couple of cars stopped for me even though I was trying to wave them by. It's a small town. :)

Town trees are finally in bloom about three weeks late this year. Last year they bloomed a couple of weeks early!

It was barely wide enough at 15mm on FF to get this monster cloud in the frame the other night.

Godox V1 round head speedlight

Thanks. I'll keep limping along with the Metz and external battery for now (a Godox too). I keep having problems with the cables and want to just not deal with an external battery pack which it looks like the A1 could give me for a very reasonable price.

I wish there was a GN standard to make power comparisons easier. Or at least something harder for marketing departments to manipulate.
I would be ok with the same amount as my existing flash but would be happier with more. I definitely wouldn't want less.

I can see the logic in that. I was thinking I would use this both on and off the camera quite a bit. I may just got for the AD200 anyway but having the option to use it either way with only one addition thing (transmitter) is handy.

Godox V1 round head speedlight

Are any of these available yet? I'm considering replacing my Metz 58 AF-2 and this seems like it might be a good option. I use Cactus triggers with the Metz and would switch to a Godox trigger like the XPro-P if it all works together. Then I could add a AD200 Pro or two as I need them for projects and get rid of my mix of old random speedlights and triggers.

One thing that is confusing to me the trying to compare the guide number of the Metz and Godox.
Metz 58 AF-2 says: "Guide Number: 190' at ISO 100 and 105mm"
Godox A1 says: "92 feet (28m) at ISO 100 and 50mm"

How should those values be compared to get an apples to apples comparison? Am I correct to think the Metz has considerably more power based on this?
