Lets see, do I want an overpriced camera with a fixed lens, or the Sony? Hmmmm, really hard decision. Have to start saving up.....
Owen: I'd never buy that, it doesn't even say G7 on the front, how will I ever know which camera I'm using?People on the street will keep asking me "What camera is that?" I can't deal with all those questions.
It was a joke............

I like the font they use for the numbers, but I don't like it 3700 dollars worth.The lens is pretty cheap (if your a professional sports star) it's the lens hood that kills yer.
I think the one that wasn't done, that stands out in my mind, is a still taken from the Kennedy assassination where his wife Jackie is reaching back to help the Secret Service to get onboard the Limo.
Percival Merriwether: I love my Lumix G5, and the GX7 looks like a real winner. Now, if Nikon would only make a full-frame version of a GX7, I'd be able to make use of all of my Nikkor lenses on a mirrorless body!
Nikon should have made it instead of their new Df.......
"Every six months he wants to do something new" Well that's just fine for him, he gets free cameras, I have to buy the darn things, and don't tell me this crap that I don't have to, it's a disease my friend.
So what's new in 5 months, an AlphaNex Mark II? Nex-Alpha NA-1?
GabrielZ: What possible advantage could this retro-styled new Nikon offer over a D800? I just don't see the point frankly, unless its much more compact in size - like a Sony A7/A7R, which it doesn't seem to be.
"Look at the build quality?" You can tell the build quality fro the video?
Your good, Owen
To bad they have to make these cameras look like throw backs from the '60s. Get some designers on the staff.
epo001: Nice article. Erm ... what was it about again?
What a load of crap.
Why does Oly have to make their stuff look like outdated SLRs? My car looks nothing like a Model T.
Is that second photo an Indian with a mustache?
What was wrong with the Alpha "A" mount? No way I'm switching to a set of new lenses when I have "A" mount Sony and Minolta glass.
chj: Mirrorless without a touchscreen?! at well over $1000?! Why Sony, why?!!! As much as DPR'ers may pooh, pooh, my recent iphone acquisition has made me realize you HAVE TO have touchscreen for spontaneous shooting.
Nothing beats a touch screen for macro when using a tripod. Especially touch autofocus.........
obeythebeagle: What a bunch of belly-aching! The camera (A7R) is an awesome, unbelievable gift! It heats up camera competition like nothing seen in many years and we all benefit. Can you imaging how boring Nikon and Canon stuff would be if Sony wasn't constantly pushing?1) It may have the best IQ of any camera period. Worth repeating, it may have the best IQ of any camera period. Certainly it will be up there with the more than awesome 800E. Isn't IQ what we really want?2) Lightest, smallest, cheapest (w A7) ff.3) Zeiss glass (and coatings) for crying out loud.
A gift? You mean they're going to give me one? Happy Days are here again.....
I have to laugh when people say they copied the new Olympus body, the only thing the same is that they are both black.
What is the point of making a smaller body when the lenses still have to be large, especially when using the adapter....and who wants to pay a thousand bucks for a 55mm lens?
whawha: Its a beautiful camera, but it competes in price with full frame SLRs and judging by the samples the high ISO quality is not even close.Having said that, if high ISO are not your priority this could make a perfect travel camera - small, light and weatherproof.
What FF camera can you get for $1399?
Drew Conway: Yay, I no longer have to buy into a new lens system: Canon EF lenses + Sony NEX bodies = Photography for the win.
So you bought a small NEX camera that's nice to carry around and now you want large Canon lenses on it? You may as well stick to your SLR.
