yes, I switched to the A7s exclusively. this concert (Selig) and the one before (Death from above 1979) were shot just with this camera and 70-200/4 and 24-70/4. need 16-35/4 instead of the 24-70 though.

high iso is very good with this cam as expected, very usable up to 20000 at least, 30k mostly is very good too (see exifs at flickr). 51200 might be good for very fast shutter speeds but when you use it to light up a dark scene the noise can kill the picture.

currently I am having a little trouble with focussing fast performers (he was kind of fast) but it is a learning process. used AF-S and variable spot focussing. next time I will try AF-C again and will be experimenting with zone focus for wide angle. and face and eye recognition which works generally good but don't know if it works for concerts too.
