Apparently some gremlins are in the system. Why so many posts from me? making up for missing time here?

So... I ordered and almost took delivery of the RX1. Still kinda wished I did take delivery.

Instead I've been shooting my GXR and manual glass rather sporadically, and much more often than not my hands are full of a D800 usually with the Sigma 35/1.4 and sometimes with a Nikkor 85/1.8.

I really like the Siggy, but bet I'd have liked the RX1 more.

As far as form factor, I must admit, I wish i could have D800 performance in a much smaller package but will I be happy with the 35/2.8? Instinctively I suspect I'd be delighted most of the time

But did you order and almost take delivery of the RX1? That's what's not clear yet.

Can you please tell your opinion again? I think I missed it on the previous page

The lens does look good.
I don't know if it's as good as the 35/2 Sonnar but it makes me wonder even more about what I'll do with my RX1. The discreteness of that camera is a big advantage.

You're not the only one. The images I have seen are really great.
Makes one stop whining that it is one stop to slow. Makes a fantastic starting kit with the A7r.
It will be crowded at the upcoming A7 images thread

I just put in my order for the lens, to go with the cam. According to my dealer, the camera is smoking hot, almost all in A7r form, and I am the only one having placed a lens order. Most of the others are into Leica.

To have some idea, compare the full-size pictures from the new 58/1.4 Nikon to the 55/1.8 Sonnar. Then you start wondering how the latter would stand against the Apo-Summicron or the 55/1.4 Otus.

I have definitely heard enough already. Way to loud. Why they've taken such leaps forward in technology, and then stuck an old focal plane shutter i there... is slightly disappointing. Can't please everyone I guess.

But I'll certainly wait for a8/a9 which will hopefully be quieter or silent.

I still think they're a fantastic offering though. Should sell insanely well.

Even better, all players can now take notes from comments and make adjustments accordingly...
...if they are clever enough.

Anyone know which wired remote is compatible with the A7 and A7r?

The most ground-breaking technological advance for long-time Sony users: the A7(r) finally allows bracketing in 3EV steps.

And we thought that Hasselblad was nuts in the past, SAR has now reported that they have a $10,000 clone of the Sony A7 ($1699.99 list) :

Oh, I really hope it's a fake. Otherwise, I hate seeing Hasselblad die in such a slow and pathetic way.

I was around in PS and wanted to see what the A7 would look like in more silver and came up with this:

I don't know about the NEX side, but alpha mount cameras (both my a850 and a77) have had the 3EV (3 frames), .7EV (5 frames) capability for some time. One still wonders why other options aren't available. Why not user selectable for both EV and frames?

No, I chickened out when it arrived at my dealer. While I love the 35mm perspective on a full frame camera I just couldn't in the end justify spending as much on a fixed lens camera as I had for three of my Zeiss ZM lenses. They had no problem selling it to the next person in line.

My time away from FM coincided with that event, partly because I liked / loved the look the RX1 lens/sensor was delivering and didn't want to torture myself, and partly because decided to leave alt-land for a while (except for my Sigma 35, altish I guess and shoot a DSLR for a year. I found moving from EVFs back to an optical finder a little disconcerting at first (except for action). The image quality is great. Battery life is great, relative to EVF/mirrorless cameras. The size is / remains my primary complaint.

Like many I've continued to pine for a small 35mm sensor equipped camera albeit with interchangeable lenses and a built in finder, and, ideally, a tilting rear LCD. But once the right sensor is available, size and interchangeable lenses are my primary wants. I enjoy working with the D800 but I don't enjoy the size nor is its size and weight necessary for what I do. The A7r weighs less than my Sigma 35/1.4 alone.

On noise: Wish I had the RX1 last night - was shooting an indoors meeting from the end of a very long, fully occupied, conference table with all eyes focussed up front at slides being projected. The subject matter was serious so when the speaker had paused to let the slides sink in it was often dead silent except for mirror slap and shutter noises. Still my discomfort was probably greater than that of the participants.

The D800 isn't quiet; I have to imagine the A7 / A7r are quiet(er) given there's no mirror slapping away.

I'm going to keep shooting the D800 for now and ponder the A7r... I'm not as keen to make big changes, at least not without a lot of consideration, even though I really long for smaller kit and the prospect of using manual focus alt glass again interests me. That said the D800 really shines with the latest and greatest glass, particularly out to the frame edges, so I want to see how various alt-glass on the A7r pans out in real life before getting too excited on that front.

That all said we are planning a trip to Europe next summer and I know I don't want to lug the D800 around everywhere so ...
