The good or bad news is that I have plateaued. I am not going through cameras at a fast rate anymore. Plus, following the acquisition of my Google Pixel 2 for Christmas 2017 I no longer feel the need to have two cameras — a big one and a compact. The Google Pixel is my 2nd camera. So, just need one full-frame camera at any one time.
I kept my Sony a7 II for 690-days and took 30,455 pictures with it. I also kept the mega-zoom Nikon P900 around for long time but did not use it much after the first 9 months or so. The zoom was nice but I had become fond of BIG sensors.
Getting to know my new, 3-week old, Canon EOS RP. Need a couple more lenses. Plan is to keep it for at least a year, if not more. It seems pretty capable. Goal is to hang onto the lenses. That is why I went (bcak) to Canon.
Well, well, well.
I had no idea how old Sony was — or where the name came from. Now, thanks to Wikipedia, I know. “Sonny Boy” — and I can see how they came up with “Walkman” from there.
Over the years I have had lots of Sony products — going back to Betamax. Yes, I was a big adherent of Betamax.
So, it has to be Sony and I have to learn to live with Sony!

Does seem a bit strange and inappropriate — though, of course, taking topless pictures are part of what many photographers do.
You somehow want to think that Fuji could have done better than this. If nothing else it seems to LACK imagination. Like the first idea thrown up at the first planning meeting.
Just wanted to share.
Fuji With Its Unprecedentedly Large, 27-Item 2.0 Firmware Update To X-T2 & X-Pro2 Continues To Fine Tune Auto Focus (AF).
In July 2016 I decided that the Fuji X-T2, which I had thought was going to be my dream camera, was not so because I was getting increasingly disillusioned with Fuji’s AF prowess.
Reviews of the X-T2 vindicated my decision.
And now this 2.0 Firmware update.
While I am glad that Fuji, true to its reputation, continues to improve features of its cameras, this shows that there is still a lot that needs tweaking in the X-T2 when it comes to AF.
I do miss the brilliant JPEG color I could get from a Fuji. But, AF woes really got me down.
Hence my new found fondness for Sony.
No chatter at all, at all.
So, we have to start thinking end of March or maybe even mid-April.
My druthers insist that a new a7 announcement has to be imminent. But, I could be wrong.
Just keep YOU posted, as promised.
IF this is to be the case you would have thought that there would have been much more ‘chatter’ by now.
Are we in for a disappointment?
Is Sony this good at keeping announcements under wraps?
Don’t they need to invite press to the event etc.?
Just seems strange.
Hope I am wrong and that we do see the a7 III unveiled this weekend.
