re: http://www.cameraegg.org/sony-a7-a7r-rx10-sample-images/

From my experience with image processing, I can tell you that these images were slathered with EE either in camera or post - so many EE artifacts its not funny.  Hopefully it can be disabled if in camera.


Sorry ... but what is EE?


EE = Edge Enhancement/sharpening.  If you look at any of the high contrast borders there is massive artifacting showing that substantial artificial sharpening was applied to the point where it looks unnatural IMO.

I.E. on this picture look to the on the left border of the model's arm and leg and you can see a thick outline/ghosting caused by the edge enhancement processing, you might need to zoom in a bit:

To me, A7 series will be a great walk-around-the-town camera. I'll look forward to see what Sony/Zeiss has to offer in prime lenses next coming years.


The A7+Zeiss 35mm (594 grams) falls between a 6D+40mm (900 grams) and EOS-M+22 (403 grams) for weight making it a very portable FF option. 

http://camerasize.com/compact/#380.345,487.394,351.349,ha,t

The weight advantage will be less percentage wise with larger lenses, as the A7 and A7R will still require large heavy lenses, just like a DSLR.  So the size and weight advantage will just be with the camera bodies (A7 - 474 grams, 6D - 770 grams).  Using the small lenses above, the A7 is 34% lighter than the 6D kit.  Using a larger zoom, the 6D + 70-200 F4 IS weighs 1,530 grams, the A7 + Sony FE 70-200 F4 G OSS weighs 1,314 grams, so only 14% lighter.

http://camerasize.com/compact/#380.294,487.392,ha,t

I dont walk around with 70-200 lens. 35 or 50mm is what I like to have. I prefer shooting long telephoto lens with dslr. Much better balance.

I think people just try to interpret too much from these heavily processed JPGs directly from the camera. Have you all forgotten the totally horrible 5D3 pictures Canon used at the launch? Just sit back, relax and wait for some proper tests.

Most here are just commenting on the images that are shown as a sample and hardly dissing the camera. As always, the proof will be in the pudding :)

I'm giving it a go, ordered the a7r Body with the Zeiss 35 & 55.

Probably end December, looking forward to it.

My flirt with the Leica M9 was a tragedy, for me, lovely Camera, sort of, but you need young eyes for a Rangefinder, or at least good old ones. Clunky 1980's Menu system, but wonderful Glass.

Hopefully the Sony ticks some of the box's the M9 didn't (for me, I have friends that love the Leica M system and produce amazingly good Images from it), at least the a7r should be a reasonable smallish camera when the 1Dx is just to much for the job.

Awesome eml58 ;D
 
I would add 35mm as well if my wife willing to give up her RX1, I just don't see how that going to happen though.

We really enjoy our RX1 as walk around camera. The Zeiss FE 35mm looks quite small compared to 55mm, which I think it will be perfect for small body like A7r.

I placed my pre-order(A7 + Zeiss 55mm) 20mins after the announcement. I hope to hand on this x-mas.

Ha Ha Ha !!! Good to see you feeding that NGAS Dylan777, like my own, seems alive & healthy.

Enjoy your Xmas Present to yourself.

You too eml58. Life is short - why wait for Canon ;D

If things work out right, I plan to rebuild my gear in early 2014. I don't photography for living, just family photos. Will see how A7 performs first though.

Below is my plan for 2014.

Body: 1DX -- 5D III
Zoom: 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Prime: 40mm -- 85L II -- 135L -- 400L f2.8 IS II

Nice.
If that Zeiss 35 was f/2 at least, I would have so much easier time pulling the trigger on A7r/35 f/2 combo, foregoing the 55.

Below is my plan for 2014.

That is a serious endeavour at Planning, I salute you Sir, I generally buy by default something I like, but this planned spread has me re thinking how serious I should take my NGAS, well done Dylan777.

On your Zeiss WA, I purchased last year the Zeiss Distagon T 2.8/15, this is a truly supreme Lens, I have yet to put it into my Underwater Housing on the 5DMK III, but it totally blows away my 8-15 @ 15 which is my current go to WA lens for underwater photography, you give up Auto Focus, but that hasn't been an issue for me to date, price, like all Zeiss Lenses is a killer, but you do get what you pay for with these Lenses.

I've ordered the Zeiss Otus 55 1.4/55 as well, intend using this on the 1Dx to replace the Canon 50 1.2 L II.

The a7r, if it lives up to expectations, will hopefully become the walk around/general Body, I'll also be keen to see if I can get it into an Underwater housing, with the Zeiss 15 & 35 it should work excellent, just need a good Macro Lens for it, Hmmmmm.....

I would add on the Zeiss 15, the reason I've not put it into the Underwater Housing, is the really PIA Hood attachment, completely boneheaded idea on an otherwise remarkable Lens, getting the Hood off, is doable, but a bit scary and not for the feint hearted, unfortunately the Hood Petals protrude far enough they come up against the Glass on the WA Port of my Housing set up, bummer.

Kind of looks like what Angelina Jolie would have looked like as a teenager, if she had been born with one eye out of focus.
