Convert Sony A7r raw files to Nikon NEF format for you NX users:

Thanks for the link, it works well as a stand-alone, not sure how to use it as a plugin though.
Of interest, the files out of the a7r saved in Tiff, without layers run at just under 210 MB in size.
This is similar to what one gets with Phase One back at similar pixel count.
Oh, how long I've been waiting for this in a small package...
Now if only we can figure out how to get uncompressed RAW files right out of the camera only allowing the user to make the changes, not Sony. Come on Sony some of us don't want all of your adjustments, at least we want to know what they are
Cheers

I have to admit that I'm not quite as pessimistic as Ron. My standards are obviously lower

A7/r cameras compared to classic SLRs of the past, scaled to size on a best-efforts basis, images shared with permission:



















That last pairing sure looks like a case of "separated at birth"! Thanks to MisterPixel at pbase.com.

Must admit to never being a fan that look. The mind of Minolta might have been on crack then.

They are surprisingly close in size to those classics though !! What WAS Nikon thinking when they made that beast of the DF ?!?

Funny though to think that those classics all have a fully working mirror mechanism in them and they're still the same size or thinner than the sony.

That said, so pleased to see that we've returned to a 'normal' size for a FF camera, after all these years.

The thickness across most of the body is roughly the same between old and new classics, if we can call the Sony that, but with the Sony you get tilt LCD as part of the package instead of a little metal holder for the tab of your film box to remember what you've got loaded.

However the film cameras have a little cheat going on -- surrounding the mount there's a protrusion from the front of the body upon which the mounts are affixed in order to get the mount at the necessary flange focal distance from the flexible sensor (film) and also to provide clearance for the mirror.

That's what I though when first saw the A7s. I used to owned all three and the last one is Maxxum 7000 (23 yrs ago), it was pretty "hi-tech" looks at that time. Gee if Sony comes out the A7s's in chrome body option they would take all the $$$ from Df Nikon fans.
Thanks for those pics. Could be a fun assignment after my A7 arrives and on the rainy day to take a picture of this Sony sits side by side with my others 35mm film camera bodies.
