I would be using S*ny if the subjects are close enough for wides, normals or short teles, e.g, humans and domestic species. There are so many similar fast E mount lenses under 135mm that it is nuts.You're talking about telephoto ranges and I'm thinking about standard ranges. A lot of the Z series primes under 200mm are 1.8s at best.
Oh, so much this. A lot of time it's assumed knowledge, since kids have grown up with tech. But the tech they've grown up is Android and iOS/iPadOS, where the desktop/file/workspace concepts are largely mute and ignored.It does seem like the increased accessibility of basic technology has led to some regression on computer knowledge in general.
I'm not sure this is a practical limitation for NAS-like applications these days. Probably hasn't been for a couple years. And my tech habit will have me upgrading again within 5 years anyway.Just be aware of the data retention limits of whatever flash memory you use. Unlike magnetic media, flash will lose data integrity over a much shorter time frame.
The M.2 capacity sucks and the fact that 4 PCIe lanes are needed per M.SSD limits quantity use to devices with lots of lanes. Otherwise switching or bifrucation is used and then performance is weak. It's a huge problem in the MAC land too.
