I ditched Chrome and went back to Firefox. For some reason I didn't receive notices from xbimmers , so I've been out of touch. I'll try to fix that going forward. Lots of great posts while I was "out."

This is a tribute to the AF of the Sony a9. This killdeer was flying close and erratic, when I had my a9 mounted on my 560mm rig. I could barely get the bird in the EVF and often I'd see a blur, but still activate AF. I didn't think that I had anything, but when I got home there were five nice flight images (out of about 100). I was using all 693-AF points, in the Tracking mode.

Not the usual photo for me, or this thread, but possibly my favorite I've taken: my new daughter.

Congratulations on the new lens - - - looks like a keeper. If I didn't already own the 100-400mm, I would have this one instead. For my next long lens, I'm holding out for the upcoming Sony 500mm f/4.

I didn't know an A9?

Do you go to Looking Glass? I'm looking for a new shop to support (B&H is great, local is best)... love to hear your recommendations. Love seeing everyone shooting locally, even if wildlife typically isn't my jam.

Yes, Looking Glass is my go to store. That is their counter in the lens photo above. I've been going there since they were in their old store up on College.

Yes I have had the A9 for a while now. I pre-ordered the A-7R4 the other day, but that may change pending rumored upcoming announcements.

Nice, I'll have to check them out next time I'm out in the east bay — should be next week to pick up our new X5 finally at Weatherford.

What rumors would have you change from the R4?

I'm typically in the Hasselblad/mamiya camp, but have shot Nikon for over a decade. Have owned an a6500 for about 18 months but found the menus/UI tragically awkward. Bought a Nikon Z6 and Z7 to explore mirrorless and have been super impressed with the image quality. No need to spend $40K on the MF really, as I'm not doing it professionally anymore, but to think you can get close for 10% of the cost? Wow
