Remarkable no one bothered to slip a few RF lenses and an adapter in their pocket for this shoot. That would have been some news.
As it is, we have known for some time the camera can produce very sharp images with the native 35. These shots, I'm afraid, mostly due to awful light, only partly show the potential even of the native lens.
Not really impressive reporting.
Better than most of us could have hoped for. Leica wides are the true test. A7r should outshoot M240. Thank You sony.
Eric Glam: The battery says it all.These A7/A7R cameras can not seriously be considered "Pro".My old Sony A100 has a much higher capacity battery and would last longer than this pathetic excuse (1Ah NEX battery).
I was expecting Sony to innovate and come up with "drool-worthy" cameras. I'm sorely disappointed, as I don't see any innovation here.
I want image quality in high-ISO & low-light situations that'd be better than the Nikon D4.
I was expecting high-grade video features, such as internal 10bit 4-2-2 sampling & 2.5K resolution which will down-sample to 1080p beautifully . They don't.At the very least - they should have included a 1.2Mbps standard for all FullHD FPS options, and 2.1Mbps for all 1440p options:
2560x1440p, 60fps @ 126Mbps2560x1440p, 23.976fps @ 50Mbps1920x1080p, 60fps @ 72Mbps1920x1080p, 23.976fps @28Mbps
Would also be nice to have other FPS options, such as 24.0fps, 25fps, 29.97fps, 30fps, 48fps & 50fps.
You need batteries that bad, get the grip.
Mirrorless Crusader: Annoyed that they gimped the FPS and no IBIS
You guys say: "The A7 and A7R are identical in terms of design" I guess if you ignore one has twice the metal than the other.
agrover: why isn't this the full-frame NEX some Sony users have been imagining? It's NEX, it's full frame...
It is the FFnex. Much better than we ever dreamed.
Curious? Check the pre-ordered numbers. Image quality in a smaller package is a no-brainer to all but the entrenched. How can you "know it all" when "it" is always changing?
OMG it's not perfect? It's the first---jeez the list of imperfect cameras is long. Fuji made pseudo RFs which could not MF (very well anyway). etc.
For sony, there is always a little chip around here. A chip on the shoulder. The original nex-5 could only manage a "silver".
So, here we go again.
Sorry, but Nikon can only dream of a niche market the size the Nex-7 is creating.
Yes, the ones are a nice size and simple to use. The AF sounds good, but the Nex-7 is no slow poke in that regard.
They are headed right into the teeth of not only the new Nex market, but the whole m43 market as well.
Why did they not just go m43 and at least have the best sensor and fastest AF?
And of course they missed the greatest coup still left for the taking: a Cheap M9.
Good lord, guys, enough with the silly vertical snaps.
Not a good infinity shot I can see--lets see the skyline so we can at least get an idea.
