  1. Oh, yes, that's right. I'll try that when I get home. I'm getting the 16-50 mF2-2.8 today. I'm excited to see how the OIS and DIS work together.
  2. Downloaded the 1.40 firmware. The camera seems to focus faster which is a good thing. The most notable feature is the new Digital Image Stabilization (DIS) which adds in body stabilization in video mode only. I haven't checked the quality yet, but hell I'll take it. Non-stabilized lenses and handheld work will no doubt benefit from this feature. Oddly, my 120p mode is grayed out and I can't figure out how to re-enable it.
  3. SayÅnara! I don't think Sony cares. Where ya gonna go? Nikon, Canon? They aren't listening to their customers either. Fuji, Panasonic and Olympus are about the only companies who listen to their customers. Fuji has a history of improving upon cameras they've already sold. It's their philosophy of Kaizen. Panasonic and Olympus are innovating in our niche independent film making market. They've both saw a need and filled the gap. Panasonic to a higher degree for video and Olympus for photos. The only issue I see is that when the lights get low, IQ on the Pannys and Olympus drop like a rock. Sony doesn't seem to have theaten Kaizen philosophy, they are a profits FIRST company. That drives their decisions, not happy niche market customers (You and I). If it'll make them more money (A7II) or stop them from loosing money (RX10), they'll implement a change (firmware for example). I own an A7s and I think it's an absolutely awesome camera. Sure their are small issues with ergonomics, button placement and customization but NONE are deal breakers. If shooting video is your primary goal, you realize the awesome tool the A7s is. The ergonomic and button placement/customization issues are minor. Not ideal for you, but minor nonetheless. NO camera is going to give you everything you want. You may as well change manufactures every couple of years if you expect this. I do hope for an A7sII someday, but I hope it isn't within this year. That would tank the resale value of my current A7s.
  4. I've read a number of bad reports that the Canon EF to E Mounts specifically with the Sony A series camera has had communications errors between the adapter and the camera itself. It's been less than reliable and leading the people to return them. Owning a GH4, I for one hope this isn't an issue with the m43 to ef version.
  5. I spoke to the manufacturer of the SY-4KS, it's name in the US is CPRO-2E4KS and it's available from Dino Bozzi @ Globe Electronics, 295 Route 46 West, Fairfield, NJ 07004, (973) 882-9882, (973) 882-9886 - fax.
