Sony A7r and A7 reviews roundup

DigitalCameraWorld posted the full A7-A7r review and says:

We had very high hopes for Sony’s innovative mirror less full-frame camera, and, for the most part, we haven’t been disappointed. Images are superb, with excellent colours and great detail reproduction – the A7R particularly of course.

Sony A7r is the camera of the year at Soundimagesplus:

It’s the best image quality I’ve ever used and it gives me the closest representation of how I see the world in my photographs. And I don’t have to put in lots of Photoshop hours to achieve that. The Sony engineers could have bespoke designed this cameras output for me, it’s just what I wanted.

There is also a new review at Tobinators:
Nikon Df vs Sony A7 – Zero Noise Reduction and Low Light (Steve Huff).
A7r, the first hour (Outbackphoto).
Sony A7r prueba de campo at Quesabesde.

Sony Q&A at Imaging Resource (says cheaper RX1 version is possible).

Imaging Resource posted a Q&A session with Sony. These are some of the most important info:

– Sony’s spirit is to create something new which never existed before. We (Sony) will keep on working to create that kind of product in the future, with that spirit.
– Every single RX1 lens-sensor gets adjusted with an accuracy less than one micron.
– There will be cheaper RX1 alike cameras
– Why are FE zooms that slow? Sony says “f/2.8 isn’t very reasonable, but f/4 is reasonable for every consumer in terms of pricing point, and also the size.
– Sony is selling more QX cameras than expected
– The RX10 processor has less power consumption than the RX100MII. And therefore less overheating issues.

Thanks Mistral for sharing the link!

Sony A7r finally in Stock at Adorama, Samys and eBay! PB says it’s a radical change in photography!

The Sony A7r is in Stock at Adorama (Click here) and on eBay via Samys (Click here) and at Samys itself (Click here). And SAR readers told me that also their A7r preorder at Amazon US is shipping! And for the first time Amazon itself has the A7 and A7kit in Stock (Click here).

If you are still not sure if you should buy the A7r or not check out Photographyblog’s new review (Click here)

Sony have seemingly been on a mission in the last few years to really change photography, first with the innovative NEX series, then the full-frame RX1/R compacts, and now the A7R and A7 full-frame mirrorless cameras (not to mention the RX100 premium compact and the recent RX10 super-zoom). The Sony A7R is the most radical of them all, the best realised, and fully deserving of our coveted Essential! award.

I say…get it :)
