Last weekend I went to the local petting zoo to watch their latest additions: three little kunekune pigs (only 11 weeks old now) and to test my A7IV (+Tamron FE 28-200mm).

That's a fun series Fred, nothing wrong with the camera or the guy behind it

2, 13 and 14 gave me the biggest smiles but nothing wrong with the others either.

Great series, did you use the eye-detect function for the birds and mammals?

Fred,
Nothing at all wrong with any of these. Hope you're loving your a7iv as you get to grips with its functions and capabilities.
I'm finding I am using mine more and more as my default camera with my a-mount lenses adapted via LA-EA5. But I do also love my a99ii whenever I use it - it's like a comfortable old slipper.
##2, 4 and 14 are my faves.

I also like #2, 4 and 14 best. And congrats on your new toy.

Nice set and a pretty good advert for the lens - the IQ seems impressive for a cheap(ish) superzoom.

Thank all!

@Wetapunga: I used the eye-detect function indeed. Works fine!

@Phil_Wood: The quality of this lens is very good. I bought it based on good reviewson the web and Pegelli's experience with it. It's delivering in line with expectations.

The pigs look very cute. I also like the deer, the peacock and the donkey. TFS Fred
