Sony/Minolta pictures of the week | 14 April

Great shots, Dave.

I am going to try to update the firmware this week if I can find the time. Are you seeing any other improvements with the latest firmware?

Are you using the A9 or A7RIII. Hoping maybe I will see improved focusing performance on the A7RIII.


Hi Mark, the eagle shot is with the a9, which is still champ for any bird-in-flight situation. The a7RIII's resolution and DR make it champ for everything else, like both prairie dog shots. (Look at the detail on that close-up).


For me, there was nothing else of great interest with the a7RIII firmware update, other than the animal-eye. It still has "Lock-on" instead of "Tracking" AF. I saw no negative to the change. Can't wait for the a9 animal-eye Tracking AF. I suspect it'll be superior to the a7RIII update, due to hardware and software differences. We'll see....
