    I think Iím going to wait for the EOSR5 or perhaps an A74. The S1 is nice for sure, but because of predatory economic practices and other geo...

    Understand! Yeah, I never shoot with AF-C, perhaps because of my all mechanical film cameras. Another reason is devaluation. I purchased my Z7 as an...

    I'm certainly interested. I have no use for 8k video, but the two cards and native 1.2 lenses really get my attention.

    Hi Jack, Of course, but it's not so easy letting this Z7 go...yet. I did handle a Sony A7R4 and liked it. It wasn't much different than the Z. I'm...

    Certainly the 50mm 1.2 and for a zoom the 70-200mm f/2.8. That should have been one of their first, imo!

    Jack, the 85mm 1.8 S is a great lens in terms of resolution and AF, but as you astutely noted, the extra distance does indeed factor in the overall...

    Technically, the S lenses are great. Especially the 50mm 1.8S. However, depending on the distance to the OOF areas, the 85mm 1.8 S just didn't look...
