Fred: “We discovered something very important while testing this lens.
With the A7RII, setting EFCS (Electronic First Curtain Shutter) to “On” will affect bokeh rendering when shooting the 50/1.4 ZA wide-open combined with high shutters speeds (> 1/1000s). This is actually true for all large aperture lenses (f/1.4).

The downsides I´ve seen with the A7SII are its poor CDAF and the poor results of the SLOG3 when shooting the skyes, due to it´s 8 bit codec.
Apart from that, it´s an awesome camera: The Lowlight sensitivity is amazing, as well as the superb Dinamic Range and the On-sensor stabilizing system.“

I have Live View ON to check exposure adjustments.I have recently acquired a radio controlled flash and the corresponding control unit. I use it to shoot in […]
I have a question about the Focus hold button/s on some lenses.I am not sure I am missing something here but if you use back button focusing is not letting go also focus hold ?I can see the point if you use the shutter button to focus and I see the focus hold can via […]
