A7 /A7r: Sony Reveals That Lens Mount Not For Heavy Lenses
5 months ago

Maybe we should properly interpret Sony's use of stainless steel for the A7s lens mount in a different way. Perhaps this means that I should not buy the FE 70-200mm because the mount is weak. I hang a large 400 mm lens on my 1DMkIII without concern! Clearly, Sony cuts cost wherever they can and a weak mount seems to me to be a poor place to scrimp.
