Re: A7/A7r sketch on SAR

I can't believe the negativity. Are folks actually managing to overlook the revolution this brings to mirrorless cameras. The Mirrorless USP has been size and compromise on sensor size, and undeniably everyone's been pining for a full frame with the same size advantages.

The options now are either $7000 Leica or DSLRs. There was zero choice for the normal consumer and now we possibly have a fullframe mirrorless for less than $2000 and people are unhappy? Its as if folks are intentionally looking for flaws to highlight.

Can anyone possibly do market research and get a feel for customer needs with all this negativity around. It often looks like once consumers invest in their systems they want zero improvement untill they buy a new one, and spend the rest of the time running down everything.

This is not to say that everyone should rave but put in the context of the first interchangeable fullframe mirrorless, the bitterness about things like IBIS - a luxury when we don't have a single fullframe mirrorless choice yet with IBIS and which would most likely change the size of the camera -  without the context of what Sony is offering here is inexplicable.

And you can take a fantastic picture with an iPhone, which is besides the point isn't it? Why discuss gear at all then. The art is always subjective and hardly a candidate for discussion and debate, its always the technical capabilities that are discussed in the full knowledge that 'good' photography does not depend on it and pros and amateurs will have different mileage. There is nothing sacrilegious about discussing the tools, and these discussions presupposes the subjectivity of photography so pointless reminders in very gear thread always look gratuitous.
