I purchased his books for the A700, A77 and A7 but not for the A850 as it was really just a full frame A700 and any changes were easy to decipher all by myself. :D I certainly would recommend anyone to buy Gary's books as they not only give you a good understanding of new features but he also gives his recommended settings (my favourite) which saves a lot of time. What I do is copy that section and print it out and keep it in my camera bag (For my use only). If I later find a preferred method for a setting, I add it to my copy. I know I could put Gary's settings into memory 1 and as I make changes, put them into memory 2 but have found that Sony's implementation of memories are not very useful, at best. (Too many settings are not copied.)

I have never found a book by other authors that go in to the detail that Gary does.

There are people who actually think LENS stabilization is better than sensor shifting!

has been interesting reading,  so much to learn about the a99ii,  i didnt know you can use your phone as a remote commander for instance. Book looks to be of the usual standard for Gary Friedman
