Terry Breedlove: Fuji nor Sony have anything even close to this.
that is the reason why I bought a sony and would buy a fuji but would neber buy this nikon. because nikon has nothing like fuji and sony!
RichRMA: Isn't time for USB-3 to make it at least to the pro camera ranks?
who cares about usb? I use dlsr since 2001 and I always used a card reader. so I don't care about any usb protocol in a camera.
I have a problem with that application, the results are looking very crappy
Nukunukoo: Df does show marginally better noise performance at the upper ISOs, especially when compared to the D610. No real advantage though, except for legacy lens and those who love lotsa knobs.
did you scale down the otheresults to 16 mpix?
the-dude-75: here are so many people writing without having a clue1. sony has not 4 to 4 mounts, they have two, one for the dslr line, the old minolta one and one for the mirrorless, the e-mount. and guess what. all other habe the same amount of mounts, canon has even more, one for full frame, one for crop and one for mirrorless. 2. sony is not stopping the nex line, there will,be new nex coming next year, in aps-c size3. yes you can use leica lenses and all othere lenses. no other FF can do this4. there is a roadmap for lenses untill 2015
@technics: facts are facts, canon has EF, EF-S and EF-M, that makes three. nikon is for the DSLR line more cleverer than canon, there you can use the DX lenses on the FX camera without destroing the mirror and in DX mode.on the mirrorless cameras both canon and nikon has another mount and you can use dslr lenses with adapter. same as sony. so nothing to complain about!
njkdo: I am not against innovation, and this digital viewfinder is really great and impressive, but why don't give an option with optical viewfinder too? For this I will not buy this camera, I really need to see through true glass.I had in past with my first digital camera a Sony R1, wonderful camera, but...
jey, just buy a nikon DF or any other dslr!

tim fisher46: Leica M lenses on the A7R?Is that possible?Does anyone have a link or similar to which adapters might be possible?
Owning 4x new Leica lenses, this sounds like a really good option for a forthcoming project of mine where size of equipment is going to be important, & assuming the adapters are not as impractical and bulky as the above picture, this camera may be a Heaven sent.
the whole world is talking about the possibility to use the m mount lenses, and you habe never heard about that?
HubertChen: Sony forgot photographer have noses.
This camera has an EVF. Why is it placed in the middle of the camera, where I need to twist my neck and squeeze my nose against the display? Not convenient and will always leave smear on the LCD. If you have a Mirror Box, your OVF has to be here. An EVF is connected with flex PCB. You can place the EVF where you want to. And I want the EVF in a conveient position. Not in an inconvenient one.
Look at cameras from Leica, Zeiss, Voigtlander and Fuji and the viewfinder is in the corner. Very convenient to hold to the eye. No Neck twisting. No nose squeezing. No Display cleaning.
I presume the design is made by the same team that created the NEX menu system? It is a shame to have so great technical prowess and then not utilize the best possible design.
These kind of usability flaw more influence buying decision for pro photographer then IQ. All cameras today have great IQ. But do they lend themselves to great shooting flow?
I don't know if you realise this, but photographer had already noses in the past.And some people use right, some use the left eye. THere are also "issues" with Leicas.
mediman30: It would have been nice if DPR can post some pictures of this new A7 with another full frame DSLR to compare the size difference. Thanks in advance! Oooopsss...I just found it! Thanks DPR!
the A7 is not really bigger than the M9 and how can the sensor be smaller?
Kwick1: I honestly don't get it - why make a new camera that's almost as big as a DSLR, and then put SLOW, expensive lenses in front of it? The weakness of the NEX line has always been the lenses, and it would appear that this continues with the FE line. Why would anyone buy this when you could get much faster lenses, with great quality, for half the price?
almost big as DSLR? you have clue what you are talking about, it is as small as the omd!
CFynn: I hope this inspires Nikon to make a full frame camera the size of the FM.
@Tom: "I am using some 3o year old MF lenses on my D800, bringing to shine the quality of the lens and the sensor."you can use them on the A7, too, isn't it great?
Strikeroot: If this had IBIS, it would be camera of the next two years.
but the olympus and the pentax have a much smaller sensor to move!
the problem I habe with PN is the color. with capture one the colors does look much better
Paco 316: This camera has better IQ than the Original 5D. ISO 25600 cleans up pretty well with the black slider in Lightroom 4. Good for small print and web viewing.
I don't expect good high ISO, I already KNOW this camera delivers at high ISO, thank you very much.
I saw the same in a comparison with m 5D files. And everybody is happy with the results from my 5D, so the omd should do it's job fine
