I am finding this forum more and more misleading in the worse fashion, lead by couple of devoted brainiacs with great ability to browse, process and serve confusing information.
It is so much like politics is scary!
Now even titles are intentionally skewed.
Internet is buzzing with reviews, positive impressions about Sony, and all we got here is bitter, sarcastic ind smart ass comments without the end in sight.
I own A7r and it is the best camera I ever own for my shooting style!
And yes I am here for the same reason many others are, waiting for a ray of hope from Canon, before I really will start selling my lenses, so please don't give me that just don't come and read Canon Rumors talk.
To counteract here just another terrible review of Sony (of course from another silly, unscientific, inapt source):
Reichmann has made several claims like that in the past (your link is a cut and paste from the original review so nothing new and not "another"), he has been widely lambasted for them in the past too. He first did it ten odd years ago with the Canon 1Ds, a very good camera in its time but hardly the medium format film beater he presented it to be.
He also said the Canon G10 was as good as a medium format digital back, and for that one image with no DR in good light etc etc, it was.
He has said the furor the various claims have made created his highest page hits too.............
The Sony is a nice camera that will appeal to a very small better off niche, it brings nothing new or groundbreaking to the field, it just presents that stuff in a different package more suited to some than most.
