A7R/A7S for Leica lenses?
May 19, 2014

Hi guys,

I'm thinking to give up saving for a Leica M, and getting a Sony A7R or S to use my Leica lenses on. I have the following lenses: 25mm f/2.8 M, 50mm f/2 M, 90mm Asph f/2 M, 28-35-50mm f/4 M, 21-35mm R, 50mm f/2 R and 90mm f/2.8 R.

I was thinking of the A7S cos what I loved about my M6ttl was the bright rangefinder that allowed me to focus even when my Canon DSLR could not. Obviously, a low noise sensor would also be much appreciated.

However, someone highlighted to me that the A7S is targeted at videographers and that the A7R might be better (and cheaper) considering that I can shrink down the image size to help with the noise if necessary.

If you were in my shoes, would you get the A7R/S?
