Is it just me, or does the 24-70/4 seem pretty large on the camera in that pic?

The hood is large, Luvwine, and the camera is (very) small.

Still seeing these kinds of remarks:

'I was rather disappointed with results outside the center area while I remember being satisfied with them on D700 and I started to wonder is it because of A7R or could it be lenses themselves'

and

'Olympus zooms just don't go 'off' in the outer field as readily as Sony, so details which are not near the centre remain very cleanly resolved.'

It can take time to realise the need for high quality lenses and for many it is logical to blame 'the messenger' - the sensor!

For Nikon users who may consider the a7r here is a fine resource to assess how well your lenses may perform - tests done on the D700/D800:

Probably I'm in minority here but, instead of a 24-70/4, I'd preferred a 35-105. For my kind of photos I haven't much use for the focal range below 35mm. and 70mm. is way too short for telephoto.

Mount it on a NEX-6 and you have a 36-105

Just an FYI, the latest pre-release of Photo Ninja has RAW support for the a7/a7r.

That was my remark and no, I didn't blame the sensor, otherwise I wouldn't have asked myself "could it be lenses themselves".

Or just simply crop it on an A7r file

I just got my RSS plate, and unless I have a defective plate, I've lost the ability to tilt the screen down. It's not a huge problem, since it's a position I hardly use, but disappointing nonetheless.

Has anyone else gotten theirs?

I understand Zoran, it is hard to know what is going on at times.

A note on the flare issue - users on the Canon thread on the a7/r seems to have found the answer, evern for TS lenses, good:

The adapter companies have a lot of catch up to do!

I shot a full day with an A7 at CES, using a Metabones III + Canon 35mm IS. The camera locked up on me about 5-6 times, requiring a battery pull to recover each time. Has this happened to anyone else?

Yes, that is why I was looking for the reference point on how those lenses .

I agree. I keep having a feeling that part of softness I am seeing wide open is "haze" due to internal reflections.

I've never had the A7 lockup, but then I've never shot for a full day without a brake. Was this the A7 or A7r?

I got mine yesterday, as a very rough guess I can tilt the screen down about 20 degrees. It definitely limits it. But I am taller than my tripod so it doesn't bother me, I usually take the bracket off if I don't have a tripod with me.

It's on an A7. I've never seen it on my A7r.

Sounds like the smart adapter firmware/camera firmware interaction needs some work, and the issue is likely in Metabones' court as there don't seem to be reports of similar problems coming from owners of the Sony LA-EA4 smart adapter.

I've had zero issues with camera lockups on my A7r but am not using smart adapters of any sort, just native lenses and dumb adapters.

No problems on my a7r either, and no smart adapters either

One would have thought with all of the bad weather here I would have time to respond more promptly

It's quite a compliment to receive a letter, as you mentioned, from the president of a large organization such as Sony.
You must have struck a cord for him to do so. As such you are the most likely person to be listened to by him and not just anyone of us contacting him.
That makes you an influential, unpaid, lobbyist for us
Cheers

Hmm, too bad
RRS is usually very good, but my have rushed this one too much.
I've just been informed mine has arrived, been cleared through customs and is ready for delivery.
Hopefully, the issue you mention is the only one, as I can live with that, but for the price paid it does lower RSS' credibility on any future potential acquisitions from them by me.
