villagranvicent: I have the basic A7, -payed 950 dlls for a like new camera and kit lens- at first I hated but regardless of the short comings I am starting to get fond of it; gives great IQ and I see no point to sell it for a few hundred bucks which won't give me anything better.
By far is the best deal with new FF cameras so I am glad they still make them.

Tell me about it. It was norm for the time and the Aussie dollar was good back then. Sony were eager to get people in to the system and were doing the free adapters anyway (Metabones-EF,Leica M), but chucked in the 28-70mm for Xmas time only, so I couldn't so no!

I would agree as well. I picked one up in Oz for AUD$1250 in 2014 Xmas sales and that came with a bonus FE 28-70mm and a LA-EA4 adapter. I sold both, so the camera only cost me $750!

Why is it that this article was on PetaPixel first and other ones as well, then DP the next day?

Photoman: White is blinding...Black is better. I mean, who owns a white camera anyway 🤗

@Simon A real man doesn't read a manual and if he does, it means the camera/device was not designed properly for easy use.

The previous models are a bit like modern art and the art thief Richard Prince...they make no sense. Stupid people buy stupid things.

I was expecting common sense from the current CEO. A pig in a fur coat, is still a pig. It is a pity the previous CEO failed so hard.

Now this is art! Not like the re-badged Sony junk (Sony ok, Blad art on Sony Junk) that they tried to push.

The seller generally prices items too high...but greed is ok.

Satyaa: The price point is revolutionary for Hassy. It is not for everyone. FF DSLRs have more usability. If your shooting style requires a MF (OK, 645) then this offers portability at 645z price point!

Many folks expected this (wanted) from Fuji. Time for Pentax to reveal what they've been working on.

I wonder if Canon will release anything new...anything inventive...anything people will actually care about...

Photoman: To describe this camera in the famous words of Dennis Hopper..."but why?"

If you have to use two hands to a "phone photo" instead of a "camera photo", then DXO have made it for very limited market, which means very limited sales. Not for me indeed.

Tim Gander: If I've understood this correctly, Getty is complaining that Google have destroyed the professional photography industry far more efficiently than Getty could. Genius.

A bit like choosing between if Hitler or Stalin was more destructive to the world...

So Google has a better business plan than Getty's...Karma's a barch Getty.

Photoman: What about on a Sony A7X body???

I meant like a A7/A7R/A7MII/A7RMII. It would work best with the A7RMII I would imagine.

Will it improve AF speed on the original A7/A7r?
