    • Yes, the poster hit it. Ergonomics are better, but an firmware update in menu organizing would be welcome. Especially the back button AF is a pleasure. You need an superfast Calls II card, mine V60 struggled with video in 4k, so an "V90"  is needed IMO. You enhance image quality by using "the best" lenses you can get. Not always GM lenses are needed. I´ve tried some lenses  from different manufactuerer, i leaned from  Sonyfriendboys in the last few weeks. My personal findigs in pr
    • One more thing.  The increased bit depth is very helpful when you are trying to pull out shadow detail or preserve highlight detail in a very contrasty scene.   So if you have a fast enough computer and enough drive space, shoot big and you can always crop and downsample later.  Upsampling or interpolation is not satisfactory.
