Midwest: The only full frame DSLR with a stabilized sensor... maybe because stabilizing the sensor on a DSLR (instead of the lens) doesn't make a lot of sense unless you LIKE a viewfinder that has nonstop jitters.
You are mixing mirrorless (electronic) viewfinders with dSLR (optical) viewfinders...
Straight line brushing. Finally! Seriously, if paint has more brush options, you know you are lacking. (I use CO, and the brush palette is aggravatingly small and not really enough.)
(unknown member): is there a Firmware update available for the A7R (V1) as well ?
Sony stated that there will be updates for the II line. While they did not explicitly state in that statement that the first versions won't receive the update, it is heavily implied. (I understand your pain, I have an A7S)
Goodmeme: Print screen, paste.
I can't see how drm could get round that. It's a difficult problem, which unfortunately - like most issues in society - might be best addressed with education and an unlikely moral, economic and social environment wherein very few people are overly selfish or desperate.
It only limits the resolution of one shot you take. Nothing prevents you from zooming to 100%, doing a dozen and recreating the original from said dozen screenshots. Or creating a virtual resolution for said image size, if it is not that high. (say, 6-8Mp)
Yeah, as if DRM was ever actually a solution. CD? DVD? Blu-ray? Anything online? Any software? No, it never worked. It never will.
Jun2: The only disappointment is no distance scales on these lenses for manual focus, especially 10-18mm. Hope they can displace distance info in the viewfinder and/or LCD
That is because all e-mount Sony lenses have focus-by-wire: no mechanical linking between the ring and the actual focusing mechanism. That said, I also would have liked a mechanically coupled focusing ring with them.
burninggarlic: how about the battery life?
Officially it is IIRC 400+ per battery.
Some typo on the last page: "Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F3" I believe you that is not the name of the NEX-F3, tough many trolls would like to demean it to a compact level.
