QuoteNot really. Considering about 30-40% of my income comes from shooting sports, and the A7r SUCKS at shooting sports, I'm perfectly happy with my pair of 1Dx's.
I have to say this is not fair. The A7r and 1Dx are completely different classes. I have a a7s and would never think to take action shots with it as even my old 7D could focus faster. There are advantages to each body. The new a7ii with its 5-axis stabilization AND fast cont. AF is miles ahead of the 1Dx for video, for example.
Completely fair based upon what he said. Did you read what he said? Secondly, it's not a false statement; it does.
Last but not least, I don't care about video. The A7ii will still not track as good as the 1Dx when used in sports, especially with Zone AF or all points active and using auto AF point switch. Not even close.
