Sony A7-A7r will ship on November 20 in Europe. First Unboxing video.

Share

It’s now confirmed. Sony Store Europe will ship your A7-A7r cameras on November 20. I will get mine from Sony Germany on November 21. The only slightly delay is on the Zeiss 55mm shipment (which will ship a couple of weeks later than expected but still in January).

On top you can see the first A7 unboxing video. You know how these videos are, not interesting and useful at all but still people likes to see them for some unconscious reasons :)

Full A7-A7r manual online. One minute review by Chase Jarvis and other tests.

The full English A7-A7r user manual can now be downloaded here: http://download.sony-asia.com/consumer/IM/4478729112.pdf

And here are some more A7-A7r news:
The well known blogger and photogrpaher Chase Jarvis (Click here) wrote a one minute review of the new A7-A7r cameras: “The shallow depth of field on the 2.8 lens is dreamy. Getting a nice shallow depth of field in a camera this compact feels like cheating.

The A7r Super Legacy Lens test….a must see!!!

If you are going to be an A7r owner then you absolutely have click over to Siammirrorless.com (Click here).

1) Voigtlander 12mm f5.6 (here on eBay).
From a pure esthetic point of view the camera lens combination looks superb. But the image quality isn’t really good if you look at the corners. Smearing, vignetting color shift…everything is there :)
2) Carl Zeiss Distagon 18mm f4 ZM (here on eBay).
Has the same issues as the Voigtlander 12mm
3) Canon EF 16-35mm f2.8L (at Amazon) with Metabones EF to E-mount smart adapter:
Perfect results!
4) Olympus OM 50mm f1.4 (here on eBay).
Great quality and great bokeh!
5) Canon new FD 20mm f2.8 (here on eBay).
Corners show the usual issues
6) Canon FD 28mm f2.8 (here on eBay).
Much better performance than the 20mm. Definitely useable!
7) canon fd 85mm f1.2L (here on eBay).
Superb results and bokeh.
8) Voigtlander Nokton Classic 35mm f1.4 (here on eBay).
A little suprise for me. I expected the lens to perform bad but it’s rather good! This may be one of my favorite lenses. Very compact and cheap and also fast.
9) Nikon ais 135mm f2.0 (here on eBay).
Great quality
10) Leica Summicron 35mm f2 (here on eBay).
Shows some heavy vignetting but otherwise a very good image quality and no smearing.
11) Carl Zeiss C/Y 85mm f1.4 made in Germany (here on eBay).
Absolutely great lens
12) canon EF 24-70mm f2.8 L (here at Amazon) with Metabones EF to E-mount smart adapter
Great!
13) Canon EF 200mm f2.8 L I (here at Amazon) with Metabones EF to E-mount smart adapter
Also great!
