    Not my finest.......just getting used to the handling. Took the A7M2 Canon 17-40L into the City to test it out. Didn't do much in the way of street work and it was latie'ish when I got there so light wasn't at its best. I also felt quite exposed lumping the kit about for street work. Oh well hide in plain sight maybe.

    I found that with the Canon lens on the Sigma adapter a number of actions would not work, including eye focus and centre lock on focus. Steady shot worked automatically (but not on the A6300 strangely)

    The good news is that the Canon and Cactus flash worked, albeit in manual mode only.

    The new kit seems to suit your style Pete.

    Thanks Bill, looks like it. Still need to get out more but the light here is shocking at the moment.
