Retro1976: I don't know why there is so much hype over the Sony A series bodies and lenses. Look at these samples: The rich color, skin tones, contrast and detail - the images are lovely, superb. Sony doesn't come close to Canon in this regard, and yet time and time again people talk about the superiority of Sony sensors, yet my eyes don't see it.
Fully agree, even converted via ACR/LR, colors from Canon are easier to handle and it's easier to achieve taste we like than form Sony sensors (especialy programmed by Nikon). But A7RII is tempting not because of colors, but all other stuff Sony packed in that body.
Pentax? I've thought that they are out of business right now. Is anybody still buying Pentax cameras? Nice try Pentax, hope you will find few people would buy this dead factor camera.
Canon on Canon body = sharp from edge to egde and low noise. Canon lens on Sony A7R body = poor edge to edge sharpness and low of noise even @iso100.
arra: It looks like my Sony DSC-R1 replacment has arrived :)
Yes, Sony's swivel screen is very helpful, but it's small and has low resolution. I wonder why there was no DSC-R2 annoucment (same form factor (love it!), but better features) from Sony.

OMG, It'll be so hard to choose from :( Sure my wife can help me decide ;)
Alberto Tanikawa: I don't know if people noticed what is probably the 1's more interesting feature: focal plane phase detection AF. No translucent mirrors necessary, the phase detection in built into the imaging sensor. If Nikon put this new tech into the 1 System, imagine when they put it into the higher end D4/D400/D800/etc ? :)
With such a large DOF (tiny sensor/f5.6 lenses), who cares about AF. Set it to f=5.6, a You should have all scene infocus :P
What is difference between "Selective Focus" in X4 and "Depth of Field" I currently have in XI?
