That review is utterly worthless. That vivitar lens is going to look like crap on any modern digital camera. He makes no distinction between a7 and a7r, doesn't talk about which lenses work and which don't. Freaking useless. It is true that you need to zoom in to really nail focus. But I'm in a rhythm wiht it and it's pretty easy once you get used to it.

I'm no brand or format loyalist, but this review is just poorly conceived. As anybody can see if they just look at the pictures out there with legacy lenses, the A7r is an incredible camera for someone who knows what they are doing.

As for paid work, I've already done some with my Zeiss 50/2 planar. So the author is totally off base. It just depends on the job.
