| p.4 #3 · Sony A7 and A7r Full Frame with Canon Lenses |
^ 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.
Expense would be items like the body, native lenses, flash, adapters and other accessories. Think $5,000 +. Putting my FF Canon lenses on this with an adapter is pointless for me, but may make sense for you. I would just rather carry my 5D3 once I hit a size weight threshold. One difference with a camera like the M is that the M is small and the native lenses are small and that is pretty much the point of mirrorless to me. I can appreciate and respect others that place more emphasis on the sensor and attaching a broad range of lenses to the camera. Especially landscape shooters or others that need the increased resolution. These A7's are probably great cameras and I would hope the lenses are good, it is just more than I want to commit to a secondary system right now to improve portability.
