"So be warned."

Every movement is so smooth, the slow motion really impressive. In spite of all the motion on my end, the pictures were sharp. And I wish the Sony lenses were a bit cheaper. With that said, this Streaming Mirrorless Camera rocks. The range of settings is impressive.

"Try that with DSLR."

I chose to shoot most outdoor shots with an aperture of + or - f/5. So far performance is fabulous. In practice, the Sony produces superlative images. The Sony phase and contrast system has it beat. The second problem is the focusing controls.

"Love this Streaming Mirrorless Camera!"

Prompt delivery and everything in good shape. Needed to get it in time to experiment & get used to it. I've added some sample photos taken with this camera and a 50mm f1. The second problem is the focusing controls. They're a good choice for all around work.
