So recently I’ve been looking at the Sony A7 IV camera as the natural replacement for the my Sony A7 III. It ticks all the boxes. It’s got a sensor that is very close to the A7 III great sensor but with a few needed improvements thrown in. It’s got better autofocus and tracking capability, improved menus, a fully articulated and touch sensitive LED, more megapixels and a better viewfinder. It’s got a lot of other jazz that’s associated with video but since I don’t do video it’s just noise to me. That’s everything that I could ask for in a camera. But the one extra thing I was hoping for was that it would be able to autofocus my old motorless A-mount lenses with the LA-EA5 adapter. When Sony introduced this adapter they didn’t enable all their cameras to use this feature. And for me that was a sore point. I have a couple of A-mount lenses that are extremely good and making them autofocusable would make them much more useful to me.
So it was with great joy that I saw this link on another photo site.
The A7 IV will allow me to autofocus these lenses and now I just have to sell a kidney to buy the camera.
