On article Using third-party lenses on the Sony a7 / a7R (506 comments in total)

Can not understand what he means when stating that aperture priority always gives a 1/60 sec shutter speed. It will if the correct exposure is 1/60 at whatever aperture is set. The answer: set a larger aperture. I use aperture priority all the time (most of the time) when using manual focus lenses on my Nex 5 or EOS M and have no problem with the camera setting the correct shutter speed to suit the light. When a manual focus/aperture lens is used the camera automatically changes the shutter speed (or ISO, if set to do so). Of course the A7 may operate in a different manner to the NEX.

Not for bragging rights , but getting the shot in a street environment.
Smaller always means not getting noticed as often when taking a shot, and bigger always means better image quality in challenging light !

Designing a lens to a sensor and vice versa. This camera will probably have a quality the leica can't match because the M range are a compromise in that the lenses are interchanable.

I just wish it had a built in optical finder.

A 28mm lens on any APC sensor camera makes for a perfect standard lens. The only problem I have found with my Voigtlander 20mm SII lens on my Canon DSLRs is the fact I have to crank the focus back from infinity a smidgen to sharpen the photograph.

ybizzle: Near Leica quality without the Leica price! ;)

Although it is a 75mm lens, it is not a portrait lens. It would be if the sensor was full size but it's not. This lens is a medium long telephoto, portraits with it will look a bit squashed.

The Sony 5N shows the leica a clean pair of heels, albeit with an adaptor Sony lens. Big price difference.
