A7 poetry (via Phillip Reeve)

Instead of looking at chart shots and wall distortion tests let’s add some real photographic poetry on these new A7-A7r cameras! Our friend Phillip Reeve allowed me to post some of his test shots taken with the new Sony cameras (original source: Fredmiranda).

Most of his shots are taken with the great Minolta 50mm f/1.4 (here on eBay) and Minolta 58mm f/1.1 (here on eBay) lenses. Click on the pictures to enlarge!

Sony A7r camera of the year at Popphoto. Leica Boss says Sony is the new Leica.

Image courtesy: Popphoto

Popphoto (Click here) chose the Sony A7r as camera of the year 2013:

The Sony Alpha 7R represents not only the most substantial refinement of the interchangeable-lens compact (ILC) camera to date, but also a redefinition of the entire concept of the high-end system camera. The camera that best refined or redefined photography in 2013? Unquestionably, it is the diminutive (but full-frame) high-resolution Sony Alpha 7R.

So, is Sony the new Leica? LeicaBoss (Click here) writes:

The reality is that Leica is now a luxury brand, inaccessible to most photographers and impractical for still more. The real Leica Bosses had to find a niche that works for the brand. This focus is simply different than when they started out. The first 35mm cameras and lenses were a revolution and Leica was carrying the flag.
So now Sony is carrying the flag for the original vision of Oskar Barnack – and the release of the A7 and A7r represent a great milestone in this pursuit. BOOM.

Well done Sony! Cannot wait to see what you will bring us in 2014! :)
