p.1 #1 · A7/A7R Resource Thread


Please don't post on this thread, unless you want me to list a new resource. I am having trouble digging through the huge A7/R threads finding things, so my intent is to keep this post as place to add resources - reviews, videos, etc. These are the links I've found so far in the mega-thread. Yes, I blatantly plagarized everyone's text and links, thank you sweet minions.

DpReview has posted samples from the A7r. Interestingly, there appears to be some subtle magenta color vignetting from even the FE 35. I noticed it in #DSC00139 in the top corners.

sometimes plain jane vignetting looks like magenta caste on a blue sky. hopefully that's the case here.

somebody accused my 350mm of having a color shift once.

I just double checked on my color calibrated, wide-gamut studio monitor. It's definitely there in the top right corner. It's pretty subtle though...and as Douglas points out in the other thread, it sometimes shows up with the RX1 as well.

That example looks like the color vignetting even goes down the right border a bit. All of these DpReview test shots appear to be taken either wide open or close to it. I bet there is less of an issue stopped down to say 5.6.

I'd say it's the difference in exposure, with the sun and/or thinner clouds on the left.

It could be just a quality control issue with either the sensor being misaligned or the lens being decentered.
