Thanks for that Dylan777, I like the look of this as a second small Camera, seems a little more incognito than the 1Dx and the 200-400.

Spooky Girl shot though.

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.

Interesting sharpness - terrible photo.  That is a really awkward perspective.  I think those of you interested in the camera will find this very interesting; I always enjoy these guys reviews and they not only shoot the A7 and A7R (preproduction), but shoot the whole review on them, too.

I was so focus on the IQ and didn't notice about photo composition ;D

I saw this video the following morning, after the A7 series annoucement.

I like their reviews. He described the RX1 prefectly.

The angle of view and shallow focus gives the impression of a lazy eye.  Terrible!

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.

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:

I hope that is a bad PP skill there ;). I'll keep an eye on it when my combo arrive.

Good luck! Wait to hear your experience of using the A7.

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.

Bodies:  6D, EOS-M
Lenses: Rokinon 14mm 2.8, 35mm 2.0 IS, 85mm 1.8, 100mm 2.8L IS Macro, 135mm 2.0L, 24-70mm 2.8L II, 70-200mm 2.8L IS II, EF-M 22 2.0, EF-M 18-55mm, Extender EF 2xIII; Speedlites: 600EX-RT(2x), 430EX II

I see some other artifacts. The texture of the coat has some "bold" spots, perhaps aggressive NR or moire suppression. On the other hand, you can see some aliasing as well. They could have just put an AA filter.
