Since no one else started one. Sorry for the boring subjects, not sure when I can travel and find something more exotic. Full size images on flickr if someone desperate to pixel peep.

Superb images on all levels. I think we expected that. Do you have comments on the shooting experience? In the end that will count for a lot.

Huge upgrade from my old A9 in all levels except it seems to drain batteries noticeably faster.

Menus take some time to get used to.

EVF is much better (and probably partly reason for battery drain).

Image review, zooming, culling (setting for double click delete button) is much faster, at least with CFA cards.

Power on, wake up from sleep much faster.

Bird eye AF is a bit hit and miss, need to control it by using suitable focus area (or it may jump between subjects) and disable it when it jumps to something else than an eye. Fortunately you can assign a button for instant toggle. I am optimistic this will improve in new firmware, human eye AF has had updates for many years now. Animal eye seems better but only tested it on images of animals on screen so far.

I believe it is as good or better than the A9 on the old AF modes. Despite having 50 megapixels.

As I am sure you know there is no longer a real penalty anymore for using electronic shutter, DR, rolling shutter performance and anti flicker are now practically as good as with mechanical. The electronic shutter artifacts that you can sometimes see in fast wing beats of small birds (from the sensor reading out multiple rows simultaneously) also seem to be significantly improved over my A9 as far as I have been able to test (not tested it on small birds yet though, only the spokes on the wheel of my bike).

In shot this feels like a camera that can handle any situation.

Those look great. After using the a9ii for a bit it does look like the colors are a little different with the a1. Are you noticing a difference in that regard?

I used capture one here since that is only program supporting A1 officially besides Imaging Edge, so can't compare colors with adobe that I usually use.

Between 50mp and 30fps, with the right lenses these A1's are simply going to eat up sporting events going forward IMO. Looking forward to results.

Still a noob with bird photography. Can't get proper BIF shots.

A few taken today, 200-600mm + 1.4x Teleconverter, f10, 1/2000, iso8000. Handheld.

Imported raw using Captureone 21. I have left out noise reduction on purpose.

I've already got LR support for A1 so it doesn't matter to me

How did you manage that? I looked for a pre-release and Lightroom wasn't on the list

Ok, got the camera and took it out to the blind for about 30min in-between meetings. Lighting sucked but it was a good test of the AF and it passed. Having the BEAF is really nice, no more worrying about getting the point right on or if zone if getting the eye vs something else. I can see this working very well for Warbler season

Took these in RAW, converted RAW to TIFF in the imaging app (ouch, that is ugly) and brought into Lightroom for a few adjustments and topaz denoise

Edit: Tried capture one for the 3rd shot, still ended up exporting to Tiff and importing into LR

I was invited by Adobe to use the Pre-release version back when LR 10 came out and I was complaining on Adobe Support forums about how it ruined the scrolling in Library grid view. They invited a number of the complainers to try the pre-releases and give them help troubleshooting the issue. The bonus is the pre-release got A1 support 4 versions ago. Without an invitation your creative cloud won't show the pre-release section (unless you have access to other pre-release adobe programs).

I went to the pre-release program site to apply but LR isn't even an option. Oh well, guess I'll have to wait

This is a fun little rocket. I was really excited to try with my 3 year old to see how autofocus performance improved over my A7RIV. It did improve, but I can't say that it was revolutionary (probably because the A7RIV was pretty good). I think testing it in different lighting will show more of an effect.

I didn't think I needed 30fps, but I decided to try it out. It is quite scary how fast it is. It was quite unexpected (I never had an A9). It would be awesome for high speed sports. I think 10fps is the max that I would ever need.

JPG/HEIF out of the camera are quite good. I will compare it to the raw in CaptureOne later today.
