Anyone who had a chance did come up with a brilliant idea to put a wide rangefinder lens on this thing?
Seriously? Nobody?

Looks great. I think this is the most important camera of this decade. Now waiting for some superfast lenses from the 3rd party manufacturers.

Stronger frame in the a7r, full magnesium, looks much tougher for large lens use.

Two custom shooting banks on mode dial, so easy to change shooting settings between native AF and adapted MF lenses!

This certainly looks like a game changing camera. And my Canon/Nikkor lens collection will work on it!!!

This release has seriously got my attention. Perhaps there will be a Sony in my future! It wouldn't upset me at all to have Carl Zeiss back in my life as well. It would offer me a great escape from my dislike of current Canon 50mm lenses, I could have a CZ 1.8! And still use my beloved Canon 24L f1.4 Mk2!

Totally new upgrade possibilities are opening up before me! Just WOW.

(Sorry, just got a bit excited here!)

wonder why the more expensive model doesn't have phase detect AF when the cheaper A7 has it

Loud shutter, its no RX1. 1/8000 though. Native ISO 200. Great grip. This is the high end Canon users' top end camera with Sony's best sensor - 36Mp.

Camerastore TV video said that 200ISO is the lowest, not 100 listed here and DPR. Maybe they had an earlier firmware?

•ISO 100-25600 (with 50 ISO extension)

Personally interested in the a7R. Hopefully it will play nice (enough) with M wides due to the optimized micro lenses and no AA filter. Still don't think it will beat rangefinder focusing ease. I'm curious how well Canon EF lenses will adapt to it since I have a pile of those too...

Anyone see anything about buffer depth? 4fps is OK, but hopefully it's more than a few frames and card write is fast.

24-70/4: five aspherical elements and one extra-low dispersion element, Tessar 'concept' (?), moisture proof, 430 grams so this on the a7r is 900 grams, circular diaphragm (so nine blades most likely), 10/12 config. 67mm filters. That sounds good.

It's hard to see this camera - given time - not being very popular as it appeals to many different user groups. The 'pro level' shutter, sealed body (except battery door) and tough chassis (a7r - the pro choice) and flexibility are great news to get over the perception of mirrorless as small and toylike. Perhaps the best way to see it is this: if these cameras, given the spec and price, do not succeed mirrorless has failed in the market, at this point in time anyway.

Let's wait and see the sample pics, but I can't help being just a little excited about this thing.

Any details about the Canon and Nikon adapters? Do they transmit aperture etc? AF

My feeling is the lenses that will best match these cameras in terms of size and proportion are M/LTM and those from manual focus SLR systems of yesteryear... meaning, should be great for the alt community.

I'll pass at least until there are some interesting native lenses. Total miss on that part, for me. It's not like this is difficult, look at what Fuji launched the X-Pro1 with, and do that.

Metabones has an EF to E mount adapter that works pretty well, full electronic communication but AF is markedly slower I think.

The dude in the SAR video hooked up a 17-40 and got it humming pretty well - metabones adapter, AF 'about as good as LiveView' he said. I hope Metabones geared up production on that product, cdo. The $108 metabones adapter gives you Leica M > E 'native' enough for most, for a 36Mp non-AA image

The likelihood of my next full frame body purchase being Canon has dropped from 100% to 50% overnight. Just can't get over it. Full frame, best of the Canon/Nikon lens lineup coupled with access to native CZ glass, and I suspect for a reasonable price once the early adopters are out of the picture.

First camera news to get my pulse going since the release of the 5D2.
