It's about time Sony cameras use faster card readers/writers, isn't? My $3000 A7R II would be perfect with faster write speeds.

Hey, the specs mention this camera's longest shutter speed is 8 secs... Does it also have a bulb mode? I'm sorry if it's a dumb question, but I'm unfamiliar with Leica cameras since they are so much out of my price range that I haven't looked at them. I'm just curious. It looks like a nicely made camera, and fun to shoot, but I sure hope it can expose for longer than 8s!

Yet they don't mention to simply look at the photographer's portfolio and see if they like it.

What a beautiful Statue of Liberty shot! I bought a Sigma 150-600 just for taking that kind of shot.

six34sigma: Looks like an awesome lens but does not look like a great lens for astrophotography, milky-way, stars, star trails etc. That's what I am looking for and its my problem. Looking to combine a WA with something that I can use for shooting the heavens. For Nikon shooters it competes with the Nikon 14-24 f/2.8 and that is a great/awesome lens but does suffer from coma. The best I have seen for my needs is the Tamron 15-30 f/2.8. For somebody looking for a f/4 lens the pictures look great but cannot justify two expensive ($1000+) WA lenses in my stable. Have an awesome time for those of you that get it.

I have the Tamron 15-30, and it IS really good. Very sharp. I can't remember how well controlled the coma is, but I think it was pretty good.

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.

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!

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
