villagranvicent: I want to see how the images look at 100%. Seems too good to be true.

You can already see a little bit of a halo on the horizons in their examples. Their selection tools and labeling system are pretty cool, thought.

Catalin21: Opinions guys: So I have a a6000 , shoud i still get the old Prime 50 mm OSS one or this new FE 50 mm /// same price bought . Thanks

Apparently, the old prime for APS-C with OSS is one of the sharpest lenses you can get in the E-mount system. I think that unless you're planning to use your lens both on a full-frame camera and on your A6000, the old 50mm is a winner. It has been shown to be sharper than FE 55mm on an A6000, and has OSS.

JonathanFV: LOL! ISO 3 million... I hope nobody is going to use it. Even super downscaled, it's atrocious. ISO 102400 would be my limit as far as Internet usage goes.

Usable for documentary purposes, but it's not quality I would find satisfying for viewing fullscreen. The one at ISO 204800 is good enough for a thumbnail or a small photo like shown, but not for, let's say, a desktop background photo or a photo where you want to see some nice details and colors. The banding could be used artistically, but still. Wouldn't go past 102400 (which is already really good on its own).

They should market it as a camera able to capture very faint ghosts. You don't need to see details, you just need to be able to detect some kind of creepy presence.

Very nice photos, I loved them! Congratulations to Luis Dos Santos. Makes me want to do more architectural photography.

ProfHankD: Nice use of HDR! Probably shocking to many people (if not so surprising for me), that the dynamic range of lighting in buildings requires multi-shot HDR processing with a naturally about-as-high-DR-as-you-can-get camera like the A7R.

Yeah, I agree! This is very good looking indeed. I wonder if the HDR part was done automatically in software like Photomatix, or manually, using layers. Or maybe using luminosity masks? And I'd also say that many of these shots did require the use of HDR, especially the ones with light coming from outside.

rjx: Has the already good electronic viewfinder in the previous Alpha 7 versions improved any in this 7R II?

Yeah, apparently it has a lot more magnification and has an improved coating.

nekrosoft13: if i can find replacement for my Tamron 150-600 that would work well on Sony I might switch.

Get the Alpha version with an adapter?

These are very nice shots! My favourite is #1, but I also loved #2,5,6,7 and 8!

Hopefully the technology improves by the time I'm 40!

JonathanFV: Wow, impressive! I'm wondering, what is it that's being hit by the lightning on top of the mountain?

Thanks! That bolt fell just at the right place! :)

Well said! I wouldn't mind getting a macro shot of my face. But I'll pass for the bent over one. :D

What a beautiful shot! Great photographer. Reminds me I really want to give Moon silhouette photography a shot.

SF Photo Gal: I'm just a girl, so maybe I don't get it, but why would I buy this without TTL? I'd love a wireless with radio instead of the really sucky optial.

Old comment, but I'll reply anyway. This IS wireless. Just without TTL. It's less expensive than most wireless triggers and it's small, so I think it can be useful as either a small device to carry around for those who don't care for TTL or a backup to leave in the camera bag in case you forget your main wireless trigger.

Yannick KREMPP: Just a quick (stupid ?) question: if you use a metabones adapter to use some canon glass, do you cumulate the IS from the lense and the IBIS ? How does this work ?

Can you use IS with a Metabones adaptor? I would have thought you couldn't!

Anadrol: Now Sony please just put back the EVF in the corner !!!

Yeah, it's really too bad, I also like the rangefinder form factor better. Within the next few years, they might have a model like that!

JonathanFV: Also, I'm wondering about something else. Let's say I have my camera on a table in my room, and that I own a cat, who happens to bump head first on the table leg, making the camera fall and the impact triggering the shutter and taking a picture of the cat whose head is still smashing on the table leg. Then I get home, find my camera on the ground, take a look at the photo, and surprise! It's a good photo. It happened randomly. I didn't really take the photo. I could claim a copyright for it, lying and pretending I'm the one who too the photo. But if I told the truth, and if I was honest with myself... I was just lucky. It's okay that not everything belongs to someone.

drummercam - Asked that nicely, I'd be happy to send you the RAW! :) Although, technically, only what's available is usable, and it's up to the person to share undisclosed documents or not! (But really, I would send it if asked like that.)
