aris14: I 'd like this hands-on to give me a hint on how they managed the weight reduction.

Actually, no. It used to be true in the old days of rangefinder cameras, where wide angle lenses were of the non retrofocal type. Nowadays, all wide angle leses are retrofocal, and of course zooms _have_ to be retrofocal, so the short flange distance is not an advantage anymore, actually on the contrary, it is a disadvantage, because if the camera does not have a sensor with tilted photosites in the corners (such as the sensor of Leica digital M cameras), a shorter flange distance means more angled light rays in the corner and thus more chances to have the corners of the image blurred.

oriomenoni: Mr. Costello has been very, very naif in hanging out at a bar in Ipanema with a bag full of gear.
I mean, every tourist guide warns you about that. Every single one.

P.S. Safe behaviour is 1) go to job 2) get back to hotel and leave your stuff in safety 3) wear casual clothes with only small cash and THEN go out to relax in Ipanema's bar.

So much for my blaming the victim and your idiotic reply.

It's not something that I like and neither I do say that hanging out is a crime. I only daid that it's been naif to hang out in Ipanema with a bag full of gear because everybody knows that Ipanema is a dangerous place to show off your riches.
You talk about my logic...but what about yours? Following YOUR logic, I would be a supporter of Daesh terrorists if I said that it's risky to visit Iraq these days...

scrup: Similar stories in Italy, sadly there are some beautiful cities that have a dark side. Too bad the local police cannot do anything about it.

Hmm...I am Italian, but I had my photo equipment stolen in London and my wife's wallet stolen in Paris.
Small criminality is more related to the size of cities than it is to nations or ethnicities.

So many people eating their heart out here on Sony lenses and system...what's wrong with you guys? You like so much better your Nikon and Canon lenses? Then go with them! Enjoy them, instead of coming here to bash something you obviously have no interest in because they are so much inferior to the lenses you already have...

High ISO does not look very good. At least compared to my A7R2

Ruy Penalva: Keep on Canon/Nikon realm. Most predictable. More realistic. More ergonomic. More lens available. More design. More secret to be revealed. The game is only beginning. Sony disappeared in every field it tried to be a leader, from sound to TV screen passing by cell phone. Would it be successful in photography? How long it will endure the competition before having the tongue out of the mouth?

Canon user here. I ditched the 5DSR in favour of the Sony A7RII because it is so much clearly better. Don't care what the future will bring for Sony, in the moment, they are making the best camera. If 5 years from now things will change, I may get back to Canon, or move elsewhere. Today, I shoot with the best small format camera in the market which is Sony's. Nuff said.
