Size comparison by Vlad (Thanks!)

The Full Frame for the masses is now here! The A7 and A73 (presentation page here at Amazon) are creating quite a buzz on the web. Here is a list of must read articles:

Brian Smith: Great field test with many image samples!
Sony Japan: Full size A7r image samples (image one, image two and image three).
Luminous Landscape: has one image sample and short hands-on description.
Blog Sina: It is the only site having posted A7r image samples. It includes some pics take with Zeiss ZM lenses. The photographer noted that the [shoplink 21606 ebay]21mm Biogon[/shoplink] does indeed show some vignetting and color shifting on corners.
Photoclubalpha: Thoughts by David Kilpatrick.
Ming Thein: His view on the A7 series announcement.
Imaging Resource: Hands-on by Dave Etchells (scroll down to see read his hands-on).
EosHD: RX10 has one new kilelr feature…5K readout!
Singlag: A7 and A7R with Zeiss 35/2.8 +55/1.8 with 100% crop with NR off
Dearsusans: What we learned from the A7 launch…

Editor’s note: All future E-mount cameras will have the Alpha/RX menu. By bye NEX menu! And the even bigger news is that there will be no more camera branded as “NEX”. By bye NEX!
