Who makes the sensors for Fuji? Only sensor makers that make APS-C sized sensor are Sony, Teledyne, and Samsung.
Just get kids cheap used DSLRs. Really.
RichRMA: When will modularity come to Japanese cameras like mirrorless and DSLRs?
If you are looking for modularity in digital stills, you should probably look at mid-format cameras. Most mid-formats have digital back, lens with integrated leaf shutter, and body.
Dear Samuel SpencerWould it be possible to do more of "product photography" with this lens? I honestly can't see anyone using 1.4f at 135mm on a living subject, but I think it has very situational but unique capabilities in photographing inanimate subjects.
I mean apart from image hosting what's the use for it anyway? Most photographers are going to keep RAWs for editing later and large groups of RAW files can be easily loss-less compressed if they are not going to be accessed anytime soon.
legokangpalla: For all those who complain about lack of viewfinder and outdoor visibility...Get an aftermarket foldable lcd hood. I actually prefer this over viewfinder as I feel it offers better peripheral visibility and doesn't get in way of my glasses.
I think my description confused a lot of people. I wasn't talking about EVF converter like the one LJ mentioned -although it would work as good- something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Kaiser-206075-Folding-Screen-Black/dp/B00175PNXQ.
@ veromanUsually a fold-able one is quite small, only adds around 5mm thickness. Of course it will be larger when in use but honestly I think that's a moot point.

papa natas: Well, The World Of Finances & Economics is a Master's Game that most of us, common mortals, can't really understand. I, the first.One thing I know: Since Sony is hogging the sensor market (They just bought Toshiba) And Sony sensors are at the core of other camera brands, it will be obsolete, in the near future, to compare different camera's imaging performances, since they will be using the same Sony sensor. It will be like comparing gasoline brands when they come from the same refinery.And for years they've got us believing that Esso really put a tiger in our tank.
Huh I thought Teledyne still maintained a sizable portion of the image sensor market share?
It is said that this lens 's depth of field is so narrow it can even cut through the fabrics of this dimension. It goes by the name of the Subtle Lens...
legokangpalla: Manual focus huh, sticking with my 14mm 2.8 Rokinon/Samyang for awhile.
Yeah the lens cap annoys the crap out of me as well. I was half minded to ask someone with a 3D printer to print me out a new one...
Jose Luiz Oliveira: Both Surface Pro 4 and Book still with no port for a SIM Card to allow the use of cellular data network. That´s the best feature of any tablet!!! No need to use a bulky USB modem...WAKE UP MS !!!!!!
Seriously? Use your phone as hotspot. I used to have a thinkpad model with LTE sim, but never ended up using it as very few carriers offer multiple devices for single plan ie) you need multiple plans.
Only downside is often you cannot share your phone's GPS with a laptop, but I got around it with a GPS sharing app.

As an owner of A7R, I'm desperately holding my self from getting this! Hopefully I can wait until price comes down or A7R3 is released.
Wish list(notice the wish part)645Z in FF format. Same everything except smaller size and 3~4k body price.
More than Eyefocus AF, the AF speed on non-native lenses(Canon) have improved significantly! For people who have thousands of dollars worth of none-sony lenses who want to move to A7R2, this is a great feature.
Random Photographer: In the future, fanboys will wonder what this "Canikon" was as they partake in the Samsony wars.
Samsony sounds like Samsonite for some reason...
probert500: To say the a7r is "plagued" with shutter shock is untrue.
Rishi, I use 400mm Sigma lens with OSS and there is minimal shutter shock at 1/100s range, none with a tripod or 1/250s range.Still, I usually use my 55CZ or 12mm Samyang which are almost invulnerable against shaky hands and shutter shocks.That being said, when I tried 70mm Minolta without OSS on 1/100 shutter shock was pretty bad. I would stick to short primes, fast lenses so that you can keep the shutter fast, or OSS lenses with A7R if you want to go handheld.
hypo: Call me old-fashioned but I can't be doing with the phrase "backside illuminated".
Try as I might it only brings up totally inappropriate imagery.
Am I the only one who has this problem?
IMO, should be called "Flipped" optical sensor. Or at least back-sided routed sensor: BRS, hopefully pronounced BURRRRRS.
Frankly, I don't think DSLR users should be concerned too much.I use A7R and it is an amazing camera. However, I see very little difference between a mirrorless and most DSLRs.Mirrorless is pretty much DSLR with liveview. It is slightly more compact, but full frame lenses are quite large so I don't see much point in the size thingy. If you want small, you should probably go Leica etc(and even that is not that small).I heard mirrorless have higher FPS, but no. Bottleneck for FPS in most camera is not the mirror or the shutter element. It is usually the buffer and I know plenty of sport DSLRs with 10FPS.I got A7R because a) I did not own any expensive DSLR lenses, b) A7R that I bought used was incredibly cheap for the quality(amazing resolution, good dynmaic range, good low light, perfect for stills) c) the short distance between the sensor and the lens means any other lenses can be adopted to A7R. And having an OVF should count as a plus(for DSLRs).
