Nukunukoo: Nice. Just wished they included sensor shift OIS.
Funny that nobody wants OIS on Nikon Df but suddenly I see many request this feature on A7/R.
km25: If you look at the Fuji X-Pro 1 in low light on Raw, it wins hands down. The A7R looks like sharp noise. The camera will have it's place as created of sharp images, in a light package. The cost is focus speed and that wide angle and fast lens will be very big in ratio to this camera. That Leica lens shorter then 35mm will not work with this camera. A good start for Sony. No dout the users of this camera will be waiting for the A8R. And lens. A wise person would wait for at least for tests and few months.
tell that to these people in Korea.
yabokkie: Sony is more rubbish than rubbish for using a rubbish brand Zeiss.
I love rubbish. Give me more rubbish Zeiss please.
Erick L: Instead of the QX100, why not make an RX100 with a phone in it?
There is one called Samsung Galaxy NX.
RedFox88: 'Every six months I want to do something new'
That's the exact reason why I avoid sony products like the plague. They don't concentrate on their products long enough for them to be trusted by buyers. I want to know I'll be able to use my lenses on new cameras while sony clearly now wants to make new things, who cares about the old, right? Geez.
Really? Because I'm still using the original Minolta 50mm f1.7 lens bought since 2005 on the new alpha camera. Geez.
Neodp: Where's Nikon?
Formula: (Dear Nikon),
Mirror-less, FULL FRAME (and APS-C), rangefinder-like version, improving on the D610.
Superb EVF. (Side or flash hump; preferably side with little protrusion. )
Best AF-C phase detect (Nikon 1 did it).
*ALL* the other photographic benefits, TOGETHER.
...and now for the real idea:
INCLUDED F-MOUNT ADAPTER; that fills the greater flange-back space (where the mirror was), *and* offers a full electronic, pass through; for all capable F-mount lenses!
This takes the stress out of creating new Nikkor lenses. (They made those Nikon 1 lenses; didn't they)
With that, included adapter+, you could adapt almost any type lens (full backwards compatibility); and it would not demote Nikon's F-mount, high quality, lenses; including their excellent per value, priced lenses. You could still use a pancake (adapted too); for street setup; for one example. Some of the aftermarket adapters (to other systems) are small. You may even be able to run Leica lenses.
Nikon execs saw the A7 and laughing all the way to bank with their 600 & 800. No competitions needed.
Gordon L: I love the concept of a compact full frame camera, long overdue from camera makers. A thousand bucks for a 50mm f1.8? gimme a break. $800 for a 35mm f28? As usual Sony is not delivering decent lens choices. Their marriage to Zeiss is unfortunate. Ziess produces huge over-build over-prices clunky lenses that often test out no better than much cheaper lenses from other makers. Sony nees to take a few pages from Fuji, talk to some actual photographers. I've never even considered the NEX system because of the lens choices.
Hi steppenwolf, all Zeiss lens for Sony (a & e mount) are all AF lens. Welcome to 2013.
Mok Veng Tim: Are the Sony Alpha 7 and 7R made in Japan ?
Probably China or Thailand.
bobsphotos: No charger? and expensive lenses! im glad my 36mp sensor is in a Nikon
Indeed. Every time you use your Nikon, you're supporting Sony. :)
Too bad I'm already committed to A7 or else I will definitely check out the RX10.
GabrielZ: Wow! I'm gob-smacked by the difference in size between the Alpha and the 6D - that's really a tiny full-frame camera. Impressive!
Maybe the next A6/A6R comes with the RF body style.
Pixel Judge: For those of you post more than 1 negative comment here, PLEASE.... go out and take some photos!
They're too fat to leave their chairs and too lazy to carry their heavy equipments.
Time to check those credit card limtis
Not only preordered but also shopping for classic lenses on ebay. Hope my bonus is big this year hehe
dougster1979: Now all we need is some clever inventor to invent pocket sized full frame lenses!!!
Yes please, I would like to have a Full Frame pancake zoom 24-200mm f2.8 for under $199.
SDF: Wow! Based on the comments people posted here. - No touch screen AF- No in-body IS- Lens too big- Lens too slow- Lens too heavy- Only 2 lens at launch- Too expensive- Too ugly- No pop up flash- Fake penta prism- Body look cheap like a toy- EVF is garbage compare to OVF- Len adapter is too big- Sony copied OlympusThis could be the worst camera in the History. lol
Yeah and I'm sure DPR will definitely skip review on this camera. hehe

Yxa: Sony has gone the Olympus wayOlympus dumped the 4/3 for the m4/3To cater for the 4/3 lenses they introduced an adapter to mount the 4/3 lenses on m4/3 cameras=A-mount to E-mountI'm glad I didn't choose the 4/3 or the A-mountI have a Nikon FF that have backwards compatibility of lenses to at least 1972
I wish. I wish Olympus would grow some balls and slap a FF sensor on their EM1 instead of mickey mouse the same tiny m4/3 sensor.
supeyugin1: Looks like Sony is dumping their DSLRs/SLTs. That's a good move.
I wish Sony would just dump all camera divisions so that I don't lust at their cameras and be happy with my EM-5. sigh welcome to the real world.
ImagesInstyle: what happened to the adaptor that allows you to use your canon or nikon lenses on this body????
i hope sigma designs lenses for this FE Mount.I have the 18-35mm F1.8 for my canon 70D, and i L.O.V.E. that lens!!
You can find these adapter for $5 to $10 each on ebay.
Boerseuntjie: There is just two things that is keeping me from getting these camera's and it's big deal for me, no silent shutter mode and IBIS, I will praise Sony for their engineering and these cameras look amazing but I will stick with NEX-6 for now.If these cameras had IBIS they would have been killer.
If I want a small sensor with low IQ, I would go with Olympus or Pentax. Or might as well get the RX100 which is as good as any mft and pocketable.
