I was taking a bunch of test shots with the A7 III today. As I mentioned earlier the longest Sony lens I have with native e-mount is the 55mm f\1.8. I saw an opportunity to test out the autofocus at a long distance with a moving subject. Because I took this at about 150 feet away I cropped this thing to a ridiculous extent and it shows but also notice that the fox is in focus. Pardon the poor quality of this jpeg (figuring out the new Capture 1 for the A7 III) but this tells me two things.
The autofocus is very, very good.
I’ve got to get some longer native e-mount lenses.
Camera Girl signed for the camera today. Tonight, I’ll set it up and see what I have to do to get a Capture 1 upgrade for that camera. I think I’ll take some pictures of my grandson playing soccer tomorrow morning, to test out the autofocus. If I can’t get the Capture 1 update I’ll have to go with jpegs. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I’ll know if this camera is the end of a long road of Sony waiting.
The first stop was the area in Zion National Forest were trails near Kolob Canyons Road. We followed a noisy stream around the area. The individual photos can be enlarged by clicking on them although only the horizontal photos will look bigger.
