PLEASE DON'T PUT CANON L lenses on this beauty
Why? Shouldn't the owner use whatever combination of hardware is needed for a particular purpose?
ASK yourself a question before buying A7R mirrorless. If compactness, IQ and balance are not important, than why not just shoot with Canon/Nikon DSLR.
I simply don't give comment and suggestion on something that I haven't touched. The Zeiss FE 55mm f1.8 is a SOLID piece of glass. The IQ is good or slightly better than my 24-70 II from f2.8 to f8.
The Zeiss FE series is design to bring the best of Sony A7 series. Not to mention, AF speed of Canon lenses on A7 series is REALLY slow. Have you ever shoot EOS-M with original firmware?
If you want to play the game, play it right. If you want the best IQ from A7r, stay with native lenses
This seems like a false dichotomy. If I had infinite $$ I would get the best of everything, including all native lenses. If I have great Canon glass, but want to make use of some of the advantages of the Sony, then maybe I'll compromise. Or maybe I'll leave the Sony alone and wait for Canon to give me something comparable.
Each photographer has different needs, expectations and hopes for their craft, and each should do whatever is appropriate to pursue those. For example, some people buy a reversing ring rather than buy a macro lens. Compromise? Yes. Are there some great macro shots through reversed lenses? I think so.
Let's not hi-jack OP thread. It doesn't make any sense for you and me to cont. with this discussion. There are a lot of spec readers on CR...
