Was the last line accidentally truncated? Seems it should have ended with "... in price".

I give Sony credit for trying something different here. When it comes to weight and dimension, though, the practical figures should include the adapter as well until there's a robust native lens lineup. The other issue around dimension relates back to the low shot life. I don't know how many "pros" will buy the A7 but most will find it necessary to include the grip just to get the shot life up to a D800/E.

Yikes! CIPA 320 shots on a charge. That means about 200 in practice with everything else going on and the LCD turning on/off and powering up the EVF and going in and out of standby.

No, this could mean anywhere between 300 to 1000 in practice. If someone shoots continuous burst mode, that will go way over 1000

In my own experience with lithium ion batteries (and EVFs ) after a few charge deplete cycles one doesn't get anywhere near CIPA per charge. More like 1/2 rated.

That's a news to me, as I have totally different experience. K-5 CIPA rating is 740 per shots, so are you telling me that you are now getting only 370 shots on your K-5?

No it has a top panel and OVF so not the same drain on the batt.  I'll have to pay attention next time out to see what I do get.  Just a guess around 600 but I could be wrong there the battery is over two years now.


No wonder your expectation with battery life are as low after being Pentax user
