EOSHD Sony Shootout Part 1 – RX10, A7R, FS100, RX1 from Andrew Reid on Vimeo.

This is a new roundup of the many reviews and tests made by our SAR readers:

A7r review at EosHD:

“Enthusiasts will love the stills but are better served by the 5D Mark III or Panasonic GH3 for video. Stills users should also seriously consider the Olympus E-M1 for the superior ergonomics, native lens range and AF. Yet the A7R is ultra-special in terms of outright stills quality with 36MP resolution and 14 stops dynamic range, combined with the ability to use almost any traditional SLR lens via an adapter.”

River King:Hi I recently took a road trip along the US pacific coast only one week after I got my A7R. It was a great experience to know this camera through the trip. One thing I did realize this fantastic camera has “forced” me to think more before I press the shutter. In the end, I shot less photos, but enjoyed a lot more. The lens I used from this trip are CZ135mm, 24-70mm F2.8CZ, Contax G35/45/90, pretty light set up actually. You can see the road trip photos from here:

David:I made a comparison of sensor noise with the Alpha 7 at different ISO levels (from 100 to 25600). The article includes three 100% crops for all ISO levels and links to the original images. Maybe this is of interest for your readers: http://davidtanzer.net/alpha_7_iso_noise
