Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Off Brand: Sony Announces the A7 & A7R Full Frame Mirrorless Cameras« on: October 16, 2013, 06:24:11 PM »
my feeling is that the people that are heavily invested in the Canon or Nikon ecosystem will not be quick to jump ship as most of us aren't looking to manually focus (for all intents and purposes) all of our glass. This is not to say there are not some people that would be completely fine with this.
Regardless, if the price comes down a bit, I may not be able to resist just picking one up to have that oh so sweet 36 mp sensor in my bag as I could still put that to good use in some instances.
While I agree not too many would "jump ship," I can see many people having both Canon and Sony bodies for their L glass collection, e.g. myself.
Sure, AF will be slow via Metabones and L glass, but if I'm shooting landscape with L glass on that 36 MP D800e sensor, who cares. The fact is Nikon bodies can't take L glass, adapter or not. I for one would love to see the results from my Canon TS-E 24 MM II on that 36 MP sensor. The other thing is, if Canon had come out with something like A7 or A7r, the price would be way higher than what Sony is charging. I figure, I will wait a year or so, buy the A7r after price comes down and while on some Holiday sale
