| p.103 #16 · A7/A7r - performance with WA RF lenses |
I think to be a Leica killer, you have to have Leica killing glass, not just an awesome sensor ...
Nah, not necessarily. For me a Leica killer is all about a reasonably small system with a large sensor. The main reason I never got the M9 was the rangefinder, since I want to see what the camera sees. If the a7 or a7R gives me the same IQ that I can get with my D700 and MF SLR lenses, using smallish SLR wides and perhaps a few longer (+35 mm) RF lenses of decent quality, I'm gonna be happy. And I'm probably not alone.
Yes, Leica glass is awesome, but much too expensive in most cases (even if I could afford it if I really wanted). In fact, I would buy one of these cameras even if I only could use the humble Voiglšnder 40/2 Ultron. It's gonna give me more of what I want than any Leica glass can do on a crop sensor. But I guess the Summicron-C will be glued to the camera most of the time if the Ultron does't prove to be much better.
