Sony A7 v 7R debate!

There have been many reviews, including the DP one that do a good job but not many have done actual comparisons, am I correct in my thinking?


Is best used on a rigid tripod to avoid shutter shock?

You get occasional OOF shots due to critical nature of the 36mp sensor?

Its shutter is noisier and longer?

You can use with most NEX lenses and still get cropped 16mp images?

The resolution is most advantageous when printing above A2 ?

The AF is not as fast in low light?

The jpg images OOC are cleaner than those from A7?

You won't notice the difference in resolution v A7 on a monitor?

File sizes are mor difficult for a PC to handle! depending on your PC of course?

I personally really struggled to see any IQ difference with the 35mm between each camera when printed on A2.

The A7r is a nice camera with a great sensor, in fact it's output is identical to the D800E but the D800E is best used with MU and sandbags etc.

What would you say the keeper rate is on the 7R when used hand held?
