Nice camera! I think a more ergonomic body to match the lens would be nice. I wonder how many articles Dpreview can milk from this Sony product... ;)
Rouseabout: Dpreview great work on highlighting the prize while conscientiously omitting camera used.
Andrew great work on an image well taken! It's the nut behind the shutter that makes an image great, right?
It's sad isn't it, that the reporting itself has evidently drawn so much limelight away from the featured subject of the article. Andrew Suryono deserves better than that and praise for how he is handling the situation! I am happy though that Dp review provides a forum for people to comment and congratulate accordingly

AngularJS: Great pic! Luckily Andrew had a water resistant DSLR, not a Sony mirroless, otherwise 1) the orangutan would be gone while the photographer was trying to catch him in focus, 2) the camera would be dead because of the rain.
It resists dry weather ;)
Dpreview need more ideas for Sony articles, please post your suggestions here
Rouseabout: @DPR don't you think these magniloquent articles for Sony are a little over sonorous?
I like what Sony is doing, but I also appreciate what other manufacturers are doing. Keep it balanced please!
I really wanted to edit the comment because it needed clarifying, but couldn't figure out how to on this mobile devise, then work took priority. Now clarification would just be seen as little more than a pathetic backpedal. So lets just keep talking about the only camera maker on the market doing anything because apparently the fools are believing it!
Rouseabout: Image stabilization!
@shutternot unless its sensor shift, stabilization would require a new lens

German camera vs Chinese granite...
Beautiful images, pointless rant!
The truth is a bad photog is a bad photog. At best this article only will only reinforce the lazy persons behaviour of taking the easy option, which if we are honest rarely involves doing anything else more creatively...
If I had X mount I'd buy thisIf I had ef mount I'd buy CanonIf had f mount I'd buy NikonIf I had mft mount I'd buy thatBut I don't!I'll 'mount' them all and overwhelm them with the sheer perfection of my 'sensors' size.
Rouseabout: I could never be a real man if I used a crop sensor!
Come on Glen, didn't you know? The sensor maketh the man! ;)

Kudos to Lensrentals for putting canon against the wall and forcing them to respond quickly and ethically! And all those like Dpreview who further spread the report.
Britzzzilla: So basically, they didn't answer any of DP Review's questions, is what I read. You should scream at their PR person - don't deliver an interview if you can't make good on it.
However, it may be worthwhile communicating how such interviews are received...
@DPR I'm sure from your perspective the 'off the record' interview was enlightening. From the readers perspective it was not!
Stigg: hmm, no matter the weather you just keep taking boring snapshots. even antsy bad-breath adams could make more interesting mediocre shots than these. try throwing your camera at some rocks or off a cliff. they'll definitely be more lively than your usual.
Haha, I invite all dpreview readers to see Stiggs 'interesting' images.
neil holmes: That the dynamic range is lower at base ISO than some other cameras is a given (though it is actually still higher than many others).
To me, since this really is a low light camera, it is the dynamic range AT high ISOs where the camera stands out.How did the DR test against (any) other cameras at ISO 12800 or 25600? (normal ISOs for me with the A7s).
One other thing I didn't see mentioned but may have missed....the versions of the camera. Its seems you can have a NTSC only version or one that is both PAL AND NTSC.
EDIT the original A7 review still has a few errors. IE the camera does have continuous AF in speed priority mode (unlike this a7s) and the buffer is not unlimited (or at least not limited to the card size) for jpegs but does have about the same limit with an 8GB card as it does for a 64gb card.
@Rishi Sanyal, your response to Neile Holmes looks more argumentative than rational. Very few people only shoot at base ISO and few prioritise your personal preferences above their own. A responsible review of a high ISO camera (Edit: or any camera) would reflect REALISTIC usage of that camera.
intruder61: Th first time you see the circus it's WOW!!...the second time you go you want to see some different acts...the Hi-Res is a nice party trick, other than that nothing Wow.If Sony can put decent C-AF tracking with an APSC sensor for under $700, there is no excuses for the others.That would have been the nice new act in this circus.
Well of course you and I both know just how easy it has always been to economically develop and implement C-AF tracking in mirrorless bodies! What do say, should we go over to Japan and give those poor simple minded folk a helping hand? Head Slap!!!
