| p.109 #15 · Sony A7 and A7r Full Frame with Canon Lenses |
You know, I believe that indeed Canon will come out with a high MP camera this year. But guaranteed it would be roughly the same size as the 5D Mark III or even bigger, possibly in the form of a 1D series with the weight to match. If you go on a photography trip and you don't have to lug all your gear around the whole day, and you can drive to your destination, then that's great. I would love to get and take that future camera, especially if you need a great AF performance, like on a birding...Show more →
Late to the party here. Looking at the a7R myself now to compliment my 5D3.
Don't want to stray too far off target, and bring up what seems to be a sore subject, but the flip screen is something in the pro side of my pro's and con's list for the a7R (versus a D800). I had a 60D before I got my 5D3 two years ago this week, and although I "rarely" used the flip screen on my 60D, I missed it the first day out with my 5D3... It's one of those things that's seemingly insignificant until you don't have it anymore, and then it's huge...
An a7R purchase is going to take me awhile to decide upon. I would MUCH rather have a high res Canon body, but at the very least that probably won't materialize until the dreaded global warming snow starts flying again. One big con for me is that, like I've seen other report, I was burnt by Sony support one time, and I would really rather not give them the chance to do it again.
