Thorgrem: Nice camera for a nice price. But, where are the lenses? With big holes in the APS-C e-mount line up it's almost pointless to make more camera's than the entry-level (a3000, A5000).
these show 20 past lenses...most of them are simply double or triple of the same lens.there are at least 7 35 32 30...the zoom are all slow and the same or similar focal. the quality in most of them is weakthere no faster prime than 1,8. no prime after 55.look at fuji roadmap...12 lenses that cover all aspect of photography. the m43 now with the latest addictions is even more suited to all kind of photograph. with sealed lenses, fast primes in very situation.
the 7-14 2,8 for video is a beast also. coupled with a pocket magic...wow
fujoi know how to do camera...this is undisputable.
jonny1976: ccd is twhy a medium format is unbeleiveble even compared to any ff camera at base iso...im sure the mformata will lose this magic and resemble a d800 with just more pixel.stupid move
i suggest many here to rent a 645d with good glass, take their tripod and shoot some long exposure...the smoothness of the sky even at very long exposure is something to be seen. but i think many here never shoot or manage to work with mf files.personally i wait for samples but in my opinion mf is not high iso, for high iso i will use any dslr with fast lens, i don't need noisy raw file of 100 more mb. and i think the same think many phase one users.
in my opinion the rendering of ccd is better, and i'm not talking of pushing dynamic or color depth..simply when i look at d800 images i see a k5 image blow up, with my 645d am always blown out like i am with good foveon images. the same come from other pentax 645d user i know who own also the d800. it's a natural image, the raw are perfect no need to pp to produce excellent images in most of the light, superb reproduction of secular highlight also for studio work. cmos in all the camera i have used and k5 has more dr than 645d very similar to d800, seems to flatten all the images.
bartolyni: Does it really need to get 10 gold stars just because its Sony? I guess reviewers should be let free to point out their findings regardless of the fear factor of big brand. Being one of the fist mirrorless full frame cameras does not necessarily translate into the best..........Those who bought into sony need to be realistic as ergonomics, IQ and Jpeg engine is not sony's strength!!
i have tried it in a shop...and put it down after a second...really i hate evf...sorry when u look through a cinema viewfinder like i do every time i raise m,y 645d, this camera is joke, in every sense. by the way i have the k3 that as regarding as af and features trash away the 7r and slap provide similar iq in the same small package. the only eve camera for me is the gh2 or 3 for the cinema features. if i had to add a ff model the d800e with superb af and flash system and possibility to mount the sigma 120.300 will be my chichi..but i agree this is the best camera if u have old manual lenses u want to try. but i'0m not a fanatic of manual lenses.
jonny1976: cxall a doctor for sony a7r and the other user...they are getting sick..
sure i hope they are 5 years old..screaming like a child for a silver award..neverr seen something like that...but we are used...sthey are not photographer they are child who want have the most famous and good camera to show off them wo friends and strangers. that's all.
fahfah: If this doesn't convince you that DP has a ridiculous bias AGAINST Sony, nothing will.
simon they are sick people..every review out there states the poor handling poor shutter and poor af...three things that make a camera a faulty camera with a great sensor...i tried it in ashop and really i was ready to buy it for use my pentax ff lenses, but the camera feel strange, the shutter sound is awful the af is subpar in low light and normal in good...two af lenses...this is a good camera for those who like to manual focus
dont have a clue what u talk about...my pentax k10d used a 109 million ccd sensor...all considered i like the images she produced much more than any cmos sensor i have used. ccd is much better it creates a natural images,m the cmos images are flat even those of d800. flat as hell, plastic.
gingerbaker: So, how much of a drawback would it be to hold a Nikon D800 in portrait orientation and take two or three overlapping shots for a panorama, which would easily equal or exceed this $34,000 back at least as far as resolution?
A $30,000 premium for avoiding a second click in the field and three clicks of a mouse seems to me a more obscene bargain than a Hasselblad Luna.
Do you think anyone could tell the difference in the files in a blinded comparison?
i use a pentax 645d and the resolution is the last of the problems...the image is simply much beautiful, and there are friends who use both and know which produce the bes files. i agree at 34000 dollar is a no game to buy.,..a pentax 645d that sell at 6999 dollar.
ccd is twhy a medium format is unbeleiveble even compared to any ff camera at base iso...im sure the mformata will lose this magic and resemble a d800 with just more pixel.stupid move
cxall a doctor for sony a7r and the other user...they are getting sick..
SonyA7r: Either DP's review is flawed or they have something against Sony. I read tons of review and NOT a single review mentioned about subpar jpgs of this camera. Actually, it was the opposite.
i repeat probably fanboish don't understand...what is good for u maybe is average for somebody else...that's why somebody review camera and u not...and every review of people who review every camera say it's a poor af,....even people who always praise every camera to obtain money form sponsor like that poor photographs using leica , is saying the same.
why people want convince the world that their camera is nappy, when even the more fanboysh reviewer out there has already state that is slow, responsive and af...this is a great sensor that can be used to shoot manual lenses...u are happy ? good...if not you just have two lenses left...the handling is not good...is a square design without a great grip. a
32 euro....how can fotodiox and th other producer justifies the price they are asking for a piece of plastic? leaving aside those of resin filter who scratch only if you look at them...
HFLM: To finish: I like the A7, it serves as a complement to my OMD for shallow depth of field work, where speed is not important (changing from looking at the lcd to the viewfinder takes the camera a long time compare to the OMD, it's MUCH slower then my EM1 or the previous D7100 I used, in my opinion). No camera is perfect. Everyone can weight positives and negatives personally. But it's childish to take a review personal.
if 25 review say the camera is much slower than em1 maybe is you? i tried both tin the shop for 5 minutes is clear that the em1 and the gh3 are a ferrari compared to sony a7 speed...in every aspect from af to start to reviewing.
white shadow: Good try Sony but the list of "cons" is the deal breaker. It may have the smallest full frame body with interchangeable lens capabilty but it is still far away from being a camera capable to satisfy professional needs.
Back to the drawing board. Surprise it can still get an 80% score and silver award. I would take the Oly EM-1 anytime eventhough I would prefer a Canon 5D Mk3 or 1DX for performance and getting the job done.
no contest if you want live in a manual world, u want be hear 20 meters u are taking a photo and our af struggle after 5 o'clock. good luck.. but if you shoot still stative is good...in miranda thread is not a case there no photo with subject moving.
cxsparc: So now that we all know what utter rubbish these cameras are, please also ignore this thread:http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1255248/108They can't be serious, shooting those pictures with one of those :-)
goo duck that now we have a sony a7 so we can shoot marvelous photos....those thread show pretty normal photography as you can see in every thread in miranda related to other camera.go to get dpi and watch sigma dp3 or medium format camera sample, your jaw will drop compared to the images in that thread
ThePhilips: DPR, feel the wrath of Sony fans...
portability i imagine
there are at least 20 review out there all underlining poor af and handling and still a bunch of sony fanboys ant convince us that this camera is as responsive as em1 and the shutter is not bad, even if it produce a sound not even a mamiya rb67 does....then you see a small camera with the same biug lenses as any other ff...a 70-200 2,8 will be the same as big as any ff 70-200 2,8..so you end up with a smaller body and biug lenses, same as nex, same uncomfortable handling.
