Ralf:Have you ever seen somebody with a rather outspoken tattoo and you wondered ‘why’? You’re not alone. Photographer Ralf Mitsch shares this fascination. In fact, it encouraged him to do a book on the subject. His quest doesn’t stop with portraying the permanent ink on the skins of their respective owners – Ralf goes under their skin to find out about the stories behind the Maori tribal design peeping out from under the collar or the snakes that curl themselves around people’s legs and arms. Is it a religion, an addiction, a documentation of ones life or is it an impulsive decision, that will haunt the tattooed for the rest of his / her life? Why I Love Tattoos contains over 50 portraits of inspiring people, telling the stories behind their tattoos: http://www.whyilovetattoos.com/

Photographyblog posted the full A77II review and writes:

Sony may have been lavishing most of their time an attention on their E-Mount and full-frame mirrorless cameras of late, but the new Sony A77 II is a lot more than just a slight upgrade of the original model, offering more than enough new features, improved performance and continued excellent image quality to be awarded our coveted Essential! rating.

Luminous Landscape tested the RX100M3 and says that “the Best Pro-Level Pocket Camera Simply Gets Better“. And DPreview added some more RX100M3 image samples.

Photoblog.hk posted some early High ISO JPG and these are two 100% crops:

There is also a German review of the A7s at Chip.de.
