  1. Always follow your posts and you give the fastest notifications. One thing I have noticed my last time out was the need for higher ISO’s during night captures. But the new NPF rule for accurate A7Siii at 12mm of 13.67s vers the old 25s to 30s before NPF is at fault for 12mm, I mean 500 rule is 41s so a 30s shot was the norm years ago. And even the 1224 f/4, 1635 f/4 at 30s were pinpoint in the corners with no coma or pincushion/mustache distortion or star trailing. The combo of the A7Siii and 1224 f/2.8 GM is so good the galactic center can be seen with bright monitoring even with sky glow and clouds/fog or vertical distortion of other lenses. Thank You Sony!!!
