I can sum it up very easily…the A7r for Landscapes, low Light, and Indoor shots…M43 for Nature, Close Ups, and Macro...

It don't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out…I am really looking forward to the A7R just for landscapes mainly with the SSM 24mm f/2...

Yes I figured the same, but I didn't foresee that for Landscapes I would need a tripod.

Also 85mm has the meaning of Portrait. Leaving apart Legacy lenses - do you buy a 2000 $ camera to use a 100 $ lens? - you'll also notice that the new Zeisses are slow and cumbersome.

The reason I assume is to ensure telecentricity for a new format that goes against it at the root, with its short register/large sensor.

That is why I spoke of frankencameras.


Am, no way you need a tripod for 24mm on a FF?…unless you are shooting panoramas?

I shoot landscapes with RX1 all the time with no stabilization at 35mm f/8...

Either I am going blind or my Macbook getting too old, but your samples at 100% seems quite fuzzy. at least in comparison of my foliage landscapes shot with my old 9-18.

Something must be rotten in the kingdom of FF35. Or are DPR's galleries  the culprit?
