GXR A12-M vs NEX-7
Aug 24, 2011

I guess everyone's seen the NEX-7 specs now:

On paper it seems like a better camera than the GXR/M-mount.

But I'm still going to stand by my A12-M order - as I think Ricoh is going to do a better job of optimizing for close to sensor M lenses. At the very least micro-lenses for a 24Mpixel would have to be smaller so less effective at catching light.

However I do hope the Sony triggers Ricoh to update the GXR body to have a built in EVF and a better RAW buffer.

For those wanting to mainly make use of SLR lenses - are you now thinking of Sony instead of Ricoh ?
