So, I saw the A1 at 25% discount on an early Black Friday special and just couldn't resist any longer, traded my A7RIV for an A1. (Cynics might point to the fact that the Nikon Z9 pre-orders opened just a couple of days before and the Sony special on the A1 is just undercutting the Nikon launch price.) So yesterday I got to try out my new A1 for the first time, very pleased with initial results.

Nice shots of a beautiful dog! An A1 is way more camera than I could take advantage of but with a 25% discount it would be so tempting.

I am hoping that, with lots of practice, my photography skills will eventually grow to a point of being able to take full advantage of the camera šŸ˜Š
