Anadrol: If you absolutely want the rangefinder experience sure you have to buy a Leica;
but just for image quality and easy of use, for a fraction of cost,
the Sony A7 line is much better, and it's where innovation is at each year.

Sony lenses are bigger yes, but many have excellent performance.

Sony sensors are simply the best.
Long gone are times where Leica had the only FF sensor...

He's talking about in a mirrorless camera, that can use rangefinder lenses. Can't put those on a Canon FF body.

nametaken: Personally I think it would've made more sense for Sony to have kept E-mount as APS-C only and put all their full-frame technology in cameras like this instead of shoehorning it into E-mount bodies that are too small to provide adequate battery life and cooling while at the same time not being any smaller than DSLRs when you attach most FE lenses.

Personally, I would have been very disappointed if they had done that. Most of my shooting is with legacy lenses, and focal reducers are way too much of a trade-off. Being able to use my Canon. FD, Nikon, Leica, Konica, Voigtlander, etc lenses is the reason I bought an A7.

Sdaniella: 24mm f1.4, please! Then you get my attention.

35mm f2 far too long, counts only amongst a fov for the old film masses of years gone past that always falls short on capturing the whole scene in tighter spaces. ditto: 28mm

never mind 50mm

Impressive. But, even disregarding the LCD, EVF, sensor, etc, that weren't needed in the Fuji, F1.9 is still almost a stop slower than F1.4... in other words, a lens half the size.

FerozO: Have I missed something? Do Porsche's come with Toyota engines? What a bunch of idiots! But then again there will be some suckers who will buy them!

Well, the Cayenne has a Toyota transmission... Seriously, though, this really does seem bizarre. Other than strange styling, I hope there's some actual Hasselblad value-add in there. If they hired some real firmware developers, they could have improved the NEX-7 quite a bit.

Actually shot with a Canon FD 24mm F2.8. Don't remember what aperture, but probably pretty close to wide open.
