Reader Comment: Sony Mirrorless Focusing in Low Light

Get Sony A7R III B&H Photo and see my Sony mirrorless wish list.

Reading your blog post today about Nikon/Sigma 105 art. As you know Sony Eye AF is truly amazing. Wasn't too interested in Sony eye AF when buying Sony A9 and Sony 100-400 for wildlife.

My wife and I have travelled to over 100 countries and visiting endless museums so we are used to the dim, poor light often found compounded by a ban on flash photography.

Yesterday we visited the Getty Villa museum in Malibu. The museum as you know as many statues and busts. Even there the lighting has some of above mentioned problems making it often difficult to focus even with the Canon 5D4 + 100 mm macro L lens.

With the Sony a7R III/Sony 90 mm macro those problems disappeared largely. Amazing clarity and detailed! I am sold. Great travel combo.

DIGLLOYD: Canon and Nikon, are you listening? Aside from size/weight, it is also my experience that Sony autofocus in many types of low light does a faster and better job.

The 4-way controller on the Sony A7R III is a big plus over the Sony A7R II when Eye AF is not in use; it allows rapid selection of the focusing point.
