  1. After having focused my A7RIV with the back focus button (AF-ON) the EVF doesn't display the depth of field of the image - it is displayed at open aperture, regardless of which aperture I choose. That means no real WYSIWYG, except the brightness, which changes depending on the value of the EV correction dial. What setting do I have to change in the menue to get real WYSIWYG including depth of field- display?
  2. And what is the advantage of this software over the stacking function in Photoshop?
  3. I made some test-shots with the FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6. Result: On longer distances you have to stop it down to f/8.0 for getting sharp images - so in reality it's only a f/8.0-lens: too slow for me, even for landscape photography! So for backpacking I would rather recommend the Sony FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G OSS - relatively light and handy, delivering goog image quality even wide open (f/4.0), excellent around 135mm, and still good enough at 200mm. If weight and money do not matter: Take the new Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS - in this range probably the best zoom on the market!!
  4. I made my mind and I must say: I am disappointed about the FE 24-70mm f/4.0. No comparison to the FE 16-35mm f/4.0 which became my workhose for forest and landscape. If I need any longer I take the FE 55mm f/1.8, or the FE 90mm /f2.8 Macro. For going very light and inconspicuous in street photography it's the FE 35mm f/2.8 - outstanding in the center, good enouth on the margins. But it is true: For events a handy sized 24-70mm would be very useful, because you have not the time to change lenses. The new G Master could be the solution - but too heavy and clumsy for the A7**-line in my view - I need a compact and relatively lightweight equipment for mountainscape photography.
  5. For decades many of world's famous street-photographers used a 35mm-lens - Henri Cartier Bresson even mostly restricted himself to the 50mm- Summicron, and one cannot say his pictures are dull
