    A7s users . Silly question

    Can you actually shoot in crop mode like you can with the A7 and A7r. How big is the raw file.

    One more question and this one is a little tougher is focus tracking faster than the A7.

    Yes, to crop mode. Images are 2768 x 1848 (~5mpx).

    Thanks Mike that's actually workable. I'm thinking my runway gigs. I love the A77II but it's getting old with two different mounts

    I've wondered how you could put up with that. (especially when one is cropped and one isn't.)

    I may make a change in the near future. I can just rent for that twice a year gig. My issue is I need a A7 that acts like a A77II with regards to focusing ability

    I haven't tested the focussing properly on my A7S trying to keep up with my kids yet but it seems similar in abilities to the A7. In general use the AF was been good although I have had it hunt a few times but that was more due to a lack of contrast. Nothing like the old NEX cameras. The Sony message at photokina was that all new E mount cameras were going to feature the 4d focussing. If you follow the rumors they say a new E mount FF is coming at the start of next year. It's not a sure thing though and traditionally all that's due early next year is the yearly A5000/NEX3/5 update. What about the A6000?

    Re: A7s users . Silly question

    I use both the A7s and the A7 with facial recognition turned on, it's actually pretty amazing the amount of keepers I've been getting! Not sure if this helps on the runway, but I'm pretty sure my kids move quite randomly and a lot too!

    Might wanna wait until early in 2015 to see what's announced. I hear that a6000 style AF speed/ accuracy is coming to the FF models.

    I think it will be a back illuminated sensored camera, to keep up with Samsung. I am waiting for it too.
