    Stealth Weapon-MG and EPIC-W with some vintage Contax-Zeiss and Leica-R goodness and some Canon and Nikon modern glass just for good measure.

    Roger, I would follow the golden rule of “No beta firmware for critical gigs unless there is a specific feature you must have for that shoot”. Release builds have a better chance of being vetted for major issues and you never want a client to find out you were running a beta version if something goes very bad during a shoot. Some of the betas have been fine but I still wouldn’t risk it unless you absolutely need to.

    I still got the vertical tear. Apart from that nothing so far. Have used it three times on minor gigs now

    Just used the beta with my raven on a small project. No issues (and holy hell focus peaking is nice) but I did feel like I was playing with fire a bit.

    If bit money/ time constraints are at stake would stick with a stable build.

    Just ran the beta all week on shooting off road, the only reason for foucs peaking, and wow does it help out. My shots seem sharper for sure now that I can nail foucs a bit better.
