I suppose that all those with MF legacy glass longing for some extra grunt for their aps-c have now bought an "A7"

Also that those who were quite happy with the crop factor of the aps-c sensor remain happy.

... and, of course those that simply use AF lenses don't need them - unless the lenses are made by Canon and of EF variety and they might not need focal reducers if their shutter squeeze is an A7.

Nor do they seem to be making much of a ripple in their new M4/3 incarnation.

Damme - I really miss the blue spot controversies.

still happy with my APS-Cs, damn would like a FF and love that Sony is making a stride with A7/r. Personally really fancy the EVF to be articulating though.

CV Heliar 4.5/15 on Ricoh GXR M gives me a flawlessly performing 22/23mm equivalent.

distortion and generally changing the fingerprint of my legacy glass, of which I try to come to grips with, somewhat had put me off using the lens turbo but I have been using it, thinking of it as light bundling, a bit for night shots.

e.g. a few nights ago, with a Vivitar C.F. 2.8/28 + lens turbo on NEX5N at Vĩnh Nghiêm Pagoda at Vietnamese New year
