Hey everyone,
Receiving the sony a7R IV last week 1month earlier than expectd, I was really excited to test it during a hike in austria the last days. Especially the advanced autofocus options caught my attention. The 61MP sensor really does a great job when you need to crop your wildlife and macro photography images. Hopefully Sony will add the possibility to use animal auto focus in video mode and 4k60 via a firmware update...
In the following video, I show my first impressions. During the hike last week I took a lot of nice macro photos and also did some tests, like shooting the moon;)
What do you think about this camera? Probably noone really needs thats a camera like this, but it's nice to have;)

I have a few questions about macro on a mirrorless, when focusing manually or using a fixed focus point electronic aperture lens how easy is your focus down the viewfinder? Can you see when your focus there okay?

I tend to like to focus down the viewfinder as it keeps the camera/lens/flash weight controllable.

If I was to buy a Sony body and a converter for use with my Canon manual macro lenses would the electronic aperture control work?

Hey,
do focus in macro photography I always use the focus magnifier in the view finder. Most bodies support X6 oder X12 times magnification. Then it is really easy to check if the eye f.E. are in focus. (But I have never used a lens converter)
