It's the new Canon body! High-resolution, high dynamic range, and you can put EF lenses in front of it and still retain autofocus.

That it's made and sold by someone else is a secondary issue.

Let's hope this is an eye opener for Canon.

I will get the A7R for sure!

Cool, maybe bleeding edge photo buffs will flee to SonyLand and I can get a 5D3 for dirt cheap now...

^ Not mine. I'll be keeping my 5D3 for the speedy AF low light shooting.

But i'm guessing the A7R will take over every other area.

p.1 #9 · Sony A7 and A7r Full Frame with Canon Lenses


Very, very excited about this. Can see my lens collection in a few years being Canon EF, Nikkor and native CZ full frame with nary a Canon body in my bag. For the first time in years I would have my cake and eat it, choose between Canon and Sony full frame, and still keep my beloved Canikon primes! Choice is expanding in a way I didn't dream of yesterday.

I haven't seen the price of the lower resolution of the 2 new Sonys, but I would expect the cost to be competitive in a year or two. In terms of upgrade I no longer feel that I would be bound to get a 6D2 or 5D4, possibilities, possibilities!

Sorry, but I am well excited by this new release.

That's only forgivable if you do not drive an Audi and you emphatically do not use a Leica.

p.s. other supporting evidence could include a lack of fantasies involving Steve Jobs, and absolutely no desire to cover a Sony A7 in a boutique leather case (in brown).

It is kinda Soviet.

Darn, I almost made it! Cleared everything except the fantasies about Ste.. I mean, the boutique leather case.

I don't know. I think it looks kinda nice away from the product shooting table, especially in the video I posted earlier.

But anyways. I wouldn't care if this camera looked like a turd. It's the specs I'm after. The only thing that can disappoint me now is the dynamic range, but I don't think that will be the case. After all, the sensor is the latest exmor.

For me, I don't see enough to take on a new system and all of the expense. I think I can get by with my 5D3 w/ 24-70 II. Put a 40 2.8 on the 5D3 and it will probably be compact enough for me to get by when I want FF and more portability. I think my EOS M hit a nice sweet spot for portability, IQ and cost. I am probably more excited about the next EOS M than these A7's right now, but could be convinced by good early adopter experiences.

^ Fair enough, but I'm having a hard time seeing the "big expense" here.

It's a $2.200 mirrorless FF (The worlds smallest and lightest) with high resolution and high dynamic range, that will accept your EF lenses through an adapter. It will also take lenses from Sony, Leica, and pretty much every other mount in existence.

You'll need an adapter for the EOS M as well, so what's the difference?

Adapted lenses aside, there will be 12 new lenses from Zeiss next year, especially designed for the A7 and A7R.

A Sony-compatible flash unit ~$500; an Arca Swiss plate ~$60; whatever (USB?) cable release Sony will provide ~$50; charger ~$40; second battery ~$40; SD cards ~$100...

Sony really missed a trick here not making the flash shoe Canon and Nikon compatible.

Yeah, I fully expect that the sensors on these babies are going to comfortably outclass everyone elses, Sony being the sensor bosses, although for me personally its the high ISO performance that will make or break the deal.

With the native lenses not having to be retrofocus (if that is the right word) high quality is going to be the order of the day. In terms of cost, leaving aside the cost of an EF adaptor (which I would only have to buy once), the Sonys don't look expensive compared to the 6d/5D3s of this world.

A new EOSfun dilemma for many: to 6D or to A7(r)? That's the question.

That is the word. But it only affects wides. Normal and tele lenses don't need to have the retrofocus design even on DSLRs.
