My favourite FE lens at the moment! Good value for money too.

I already sent my letter to Santa to send me the A7r III so I don’t think I will get this one as well....

Dear Santa, I’ve been a very good boy this year. What I would most like this Christmas is the Sony A7rIII. I promise to leave you some doughnuts on Christmas Eve! Thank you!

sts2: Tbh this is all quite irrelevant... I don't understand the complaints about "ONLY 0.x stop improvement"... yes, the IQ on the A7Rii was already very good to begin with, indeed. Chances are that's more than you'll ever need.

The main point behind this camera is: better AF, faster, better battery life, and finally 2 card slots. 10FPS with a mechanical shutter (so it works with strobes). All this is HUGE. If I were a pro looking into Sony, I'd be all over this (I'm not, but even as a Nikon user I can appreciate when a competing product makes important advances).

@sts2 - the world we live in will be a better place if we have more people like you.

ewelch: If I decide to supplement my Olympus system with a full frame camera, this would be it.

You’re a wise man. I still love my old trusty A7r and I’m hoping to get this camera in the new year.

(unknown member): What is wrong here? First the picture shows someone unable to see anything through anything with the camera in the grass too close to work in focus. 2. Then whoever it is endangers this machine with a coffee in his hand. 3. Then there is an article about the share price of a company, when this is allegedly a photography site, not lloyds of London, The Financial Times or an appropriate area...

While I laud many efforts here, reporting ANY companies finances is not one of them.

There is nothing wrong here. Sony is well known for their product innovations so don't be surprised if you can take photos in funny angles and scenarios or even when you are having coffee or tea whilst shooting. Innovations that make the whole experience of taking photographs a joy. As per the financial status of the company, it's good to know if the company you have invested heavily (gears and stuff) is doing okay and not at the brink of bankruptcy. My personal opinion.

Tom Holly: Hear that, Sony boys?: "solid, predicable, easy to use".

I suspect it'll manage to focus an 85 prime without too much difficulty, unlike sonys most recent "game changer" which fails to focus 20 times a second.

I hope you feel better now....

Mikee: YES! I rarely shoot 85mm though I do need it in my kit, I just didn't want to spend over 1k on a native solution and not really into adapters.

This 85mm is a fantastic addition for me. A somewhat budget lens with double linear motor system (read that it's the same as the 70-200 f/4 which is fast), focus hold button for Eye AF, an AF/MF switch and the lens is also dust and moisture resistant, nice.

Sign. Me. Up.

Sign. Me. Up. Too. 😊

DPJoe2: While were impatiently waiting for Rishi to pump out another installment, may I suggest going over to Lloyd Chambers site and checking out his blog. I'm a subscriber so I've seen the shots he posted today from his recent trip to the mountains. They are shot with the Batii lenses and the a7RII and are stunningly beautiful. He included a couple of BWs that are just over the top. So gorgeous! Check it out.

Thanks! I had a look and yes they're gorgeous. Wow!

Rishi is such a big asset to DPR! His sample photos are far more interesting and I like his style of reviewing stuff. Quite funny some of his wordings/headlines too. Great guy!
