Kerrin: “I thought you’d be interested in how the new 90mm Macro lens does with the FS7 and A7s in (mostly) 4K while following around some insects for a few days. Definitely a gorgeous lens that is very sharp. I also used it for full portraits of my family and it perfect for that as well. https://vimeo.com/136656424”
Sebastian: “I tested out the HFS a bit on the weekend and here are results. In case you will post some more samples. https://vimeo.com/137271489”
Mike Machian: “Shot on two A7s’s in 4k with two Shogun’s attached https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6OxyN8lVvhQ”

On top you can watch the A7rII review video from Dave Dugdale. He is a known GH4 user and loves the A7rII features (with a few missing exceptions).
Photographyblog posted the full A7rIi review and concludes:
The Sony A7R II certainly succeeds in its attempt to turn the heads of DSLR owners. It won’t satisfy the needs of professional sports shooters, the menu system isn’t as refined as the competition, and some people will still put their trust (however blindly) in a more conventional DSLR, but the A7R II is a undoubtedly a break-through camera for Sony, both in terms of the promises that it makes, and the realisation of those promises…
Luminous Landscape tells you what long lens suits best for the A7rII.
The French site Focus Numerique compared the A7rII against the Canon 5DsR. And the A7rII is the winner with the Canon 5Dsr beating the A7rII only when it comes to sports photography.
Alexandre: “I shot beautiful pictures in Thailand with my new Sony A7RII and 3 different lenses, you can share if you like them: http://traveljournalist.com/sony-a7rii-thailand-stars-models-landscapes-beach-resorts-skyscrapers/”

(SR3) No new A-mount camera coming at Photoplus (now 17 months without A-mount camera announcement).
One trusted source who lately shared some correct news sent me a disappointing info on A-mount. On his latest meeting with Sony managers he has been told there is no new A-mount camera coming at Photoplus this year. Now, the only hope left is that Sony somewhat lied to him to hide some surprise. But I really don’t think that’s the case.
It’s really sad that Sony is leaving A-mount owners in the dark. Despite their official statement that A-mount will “continue” the truth is the following:
1) The last A-mount camera they announced was the A77II in May 1, 2014. So it’s now 17 months without any new A-mount camera announcement.
2) The high end A99 camera got announced three years ago on Sep 12, 2012. It would be about time to announce a new camera!
And A-mount owners are not the only guys concerned. Also E-mount APS-C E-mount camera owners are waiting to get some new APS-C E-mount lens and new camera to upgrade. You can’t just ask A3000/A5000/A6000 camera owners to buy expensive and much to big FE lenses for their cameras…
