Just when many of us were celebrating the end of the mirror slap. Moving parts shutter weigh far less than the mirror, and shake is more noticeable?.
No just as CR guy says - because the camera is much lighter than your typical FF DSLR and with a longer lens attached via lens collar and foot, the camera is just hanging in mid air. Normally thats cool on a rock solid 1DX or whatever but somehow on the A7R it's floppin about when the shutter moves. Even the tiniest vibration can muck up a shot with a tele lens.
Mirror slap is not an issue with DSLRs on a tripod due to mirror lock option.
And when Sony start using an electronic shutter instead of a physical one on newer cameras, the problem of mirror/shutter slap will disappear once and for all.
Meanwhile in Canon land, we'll still be using 1970s tech and still need to use mirror lock up in order to get sharp pics.
