Re: Poll: What Camera did you get on the end? A7 or A7R ?

A7 because:

  • I can use the extra $600 a LOT more than I can use the extra 12 MP
  • Electronic Front Curtain (the feather that tipped the scale)
  • Same resolution but much larger CoC [circle of confusion i.e. pixel size] than my current NEX-7 (might be fun to let my gut out just a bit…)
  • File size (my computer isn't getting any younger and the next upgrade is still 2 years out)

Did it take some monumental self-discipline on my part to refrain from going for the maximum IQ? You bet it did. But the price break helped - a lot. And I know from owning the NEX-7, sometimes it gets lonely at the top. 

No kit lens for me, thank you very much. I have 16 full-frame legacy lenses that have been waiting way too long to get used as intended.
