  1. Thanks for the update info, you have always been the Sony information main dispersion person. But the heading ” Read everything completely and thoroughly” should be at the top. I just got a IV from a friend upgrading to the V. The one thing about the IV and being 61 MP and everyone talking about cropping is the focusing is so good using medium box center and using any of these 200-600mm plus 2x teleconverter, 70-200 f/2.8, 24-70mm f/2.8, new FE PZ 16-35mm f/4 and 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS lenses is that even getting closest to the minimum focusing point in any of the millimeter settings and best at max it is always spot on to the main subject. I just spent the start of spring on a farm in Ms. and trip down route 82 in Alabama and focused on egrets at 200yds and a little Killdeer bird then peach tree blooms with bees on them and yes even a February milky way that detail of hairs on bees, feathers on egrets and little birds were so sharp and clear cropped that I had to go up a stop or two to get the whole subject clearly because of DOF is so perfect. Like with bees even though looking kinda far away but at minimum focus distance but when cropped it was like a macro capture and with enlargement software today no one would know it was a cropped image. The A7RM4 will be great for years to come and a great find in the used market.
