    WOW. The PRICE!

    With a 50mm f1.8, not even the f1.4 lens.

    I've owned since 1986: FA, FM and the FE, then several of F90ish bodies for film, then digitally the D2H (the best ergonomically...

    I have shot around 650 weddings, up to 2010, and if you want a storyboard approach to a wedding, then a 35 and a 24 are the way to go IMHO.

    For documentary style weddings I think a 24-70 f2.8...

  • Strange, but many a Magnum career was founded on the 35mm f2 lens!

    Once Joseph Koudelka tried one, for example, he switched from a far wider lens immediately to a 35mm lens.

    People images: with...

  • Agree.

    Tiny body, 35mm lens. Slips into coat pocket. Go shoot. The end,

  • Can you use paragraphs please as the text simply looks like a tsunami of words and thus unappealing to venture into as a reader? So, did I understand that you bought the camera? If so, in 30 words ...
  • There are two further issues no one has thus mentioned (I may be wrong as there are almost 600 comments)

    1) the a7r shutter curtain failed after 12 months on mine. Sony said their shutter curtains...

  • "we use the a7R II as opposed to the RX1R II to demonstrate this because the RX1R II's subpar lens quality wouldn't yield a fair comparison in this off-centre section of our scene"

    They are not...

  • 1) putting long lenses on the a7R range is simply missing the point of the cameras IMHO. If you go that route, buy the extra grip?

    2) the reviews I have read tell that the sensor and the lens are...

  • Use the manual focusing, and save even more battery.
    Turn off the WiFi.
    Airplane mode too

  • You my well be missing the whole idea of a dedicated lens on a small body.

    The a7r mk1&2 are bigger, the combo of this lens and this RX1Rii body is supposed to be a perfect combo.

    If, like me,...

  • UK - no one has a camera for me to asses.

    How is the manual focussing?

    Coming from manual focus: Leica M and Mamiya 7 and a Sony a7R with a Zeiss ZM 35mm f2.0, and of course the Leica manual...

  • The a7r doesn't like the Leica 35mm lens particularly, hates the 28mm and is fine with the 50mm. However, close-up, zoomed in, less convincing on all of the above. Never shoot wide open either!
  • Why is the flash sync speed so poor?
    It is one reason why I am considering upgrading from the a7r, up from 1/160th to 1/250th. It does make a difference after all.

    Now you're saying the sync speed...
