I had the chance to spend about an hour with the camera today so thought I would blog some very brief thoughts as my time is limited tonight.
• Viewfinder – Terrfic, much bigger then the previous versions and really enjoyable in use.
• Shutter – MUCH better, really well dampened and silent shutter is precisely that, no sound at all, nada. Yay!
• Feel – as you would expect if your a A7II user. Although this camera does feel a little more nuggety due to its more metal construction. I like it.
• Focus – is everything its previewed it would be. With native lenses it is swift, broad and (as far as I can tell initially) accurate.
• Adapted lenses – Wow! Incredible! Using Canon EF lenses with the Metabones III the focus was just like a native Canon camera. Very fast and torquey. No backwards and forwards like previous models. I also used the Commlite adaptor which wasnt nearly as quick sadly. Still fairly good and highly usable but not in the same league as the Metabones thusfar.
