    Sony announced a new camera Tuesday. The a7R IV full frame @ 61 MP. Take a look it packs a lot of punch for the money and appears to be a real nice tool. Until now mirrorless held no interest from me.

    Sure. Look at what it took. Still not sold but we'll see. Main reason is I can still use my Nikon MF lenses w/o much trouble or expense. :D At least that's what I believe so far.

    You can use Nikon lenses with manual focus, but I would not count on fast, accurate auto-focus. Nikon lenses have always had problems. Using Canon lenses has been more successful.

    Here's a link to a previous discussion:

    Typically use MF lenses. If I want AF I'll spend the money on Sony glass. I don't buy new stuff as soon as it's released. I wait a bit for them to sort out the bugs that invariably crop up in use.

    I picked up an A7R II last year on Amazon for $1,200 new, just a little after the A7R III came out. The best part of Sony's rapid-fire release cycle is that last years cameras go cheap. Looking forward to the A7R III price drop. I probably won't upgrade (dual cards slots would be a nice upgrade, but $1,200 in glass for my A7R II would be a better investment).
