Default SONY A7R IV - First Impressions

Hey everyone,
Receiving the sony a7R IV last week 1month earlier than expectd, I was really excited to test it during a hike in austria the last days. Especially the advanced autofocus options caught my attention. The 61MP sensor really does a great job when you need to crop your wildlife and macro photography images. Hopefully Sony will add the possibility to use animal auto focus in video mode and 4k60 via a firmware update...
In the following video, I show my first impressions. During the hike last week I took a lot of nice macro photos and also did some test, like shooting the moon
What do you think about this camera? Probably noone really needs thats a camera like this, but it's nice to have

Congratulation on your new camera.
Very nice demonstration.
Thanks to sale competition and I got a A7 mkII for cheap so no plan to upgrade. For now I'm keeping myself happy with the fact that I don't have to think too much for the needed extra storage space, that mk IV with that giant MP file size, demands badly. All I miss is longer battery life. But hey that was one of the reasons to by MkII and not III so I can use my numerous similar platform batteries (I have several A6000 for past many years), I already own.

Nevertheless I truly enjoyed your YT clip. Sub-ed and a big fat thumbs up.

Side note: All I miss on Mk IV R despite all the bell n whistles, is not a faster frame rate at 4K rez but one more mode in AF eye recognition side. You see, currently it has only "Human" and "Animal" and no less. I need Sony to add a mode for "Trump" in addition to the other two modes (Below "Animal mode"), in case I see him soon as this is election year and he is not gonna have my vote easy! :-)

Seriously loved your clip and way to go.
