Hubertus Bigend: Is the on-sensor phase detection AF capable of properly focusing A-Mount lenses, or do we still need the Adapter with SLT mirror?

Looking at the A7, I fear the later...

wb2trf: If the focus on this is really as fast as Sony says, and I have no reason to doubt it, that is huge. Nikon got superfast focus with the 1, but that is a quite small sensor by comparison. Doing that with 24mp APS-C is a complete game changer. The only question in my mind is whether to grab this or wait for the 7000, if there is going to be one.

Focus speed always depends on two elements: The camera and the lens. Sony might have the fastest AF with a few lenses, but probably not with most of their lenses.

plasnu: imaging-resource.com says that the A6000's EVF is the clear winner as it produces much more accurate colors and easy to discern details, compare to NEX 6. hmm...

To Ericofthenorth: You sound like you have not yet discovered what that little wheel does next to the viewfinder...

On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)

I compared some RAW-files in a neutral RAW converter (Raw Photo Processor) and noticed that the Sony A7 files have quite a bit less contrast natively than the Canikon ones. Since the lens used on the A7 was a CZ85mm/1.4 (which only exists in A-mount but not in E-mount), could it be that they were shot with a LA-EA4 adapter, which contains an SLT-mirror? In that case the difference in contrast and higher noise levels of the RAW-files at higher ISOs would make sense, and DPR should put a notice in order to inform people about the difference in testing parameters.
If the set was however shot with a LA-EA3 adapter, then I wonder why the RAW-files of the A7 have so much less native contrast than the Canikon ones...

quatpat: Wow, 3.6kg... My Minolta 400/4.5 + 1.4x converter + A77 body weight around 3kg all together. But then of course I shoot at f6.3 instead of f5.6 at 560mm... just didn't know that 1/3 f-stop weights more than half a kilo! Oh, sorry I forgot that I counted mine with the camera... so the 1/3 f-stop weights more something like 1.2 kg. Too much for me.

Talk about fanboyism, roby...

Hahaha nice one micahmedia... go check out on DxO the good Canon sensors and compare to their equivalent bad Sony sensors. :-)
Btw, my combo has cost around 4000$ all in all, not 13000 Euros. Have fun shooting...

Very nice shot this one! (Actually much better than some of the better placed raptors with a leather band around their feet.) And a good angle of the bird, too.
