Well it kinda is a Canon body. You can use your EF lenses on it. :D I will get the A7R for sure. This is the camera that I've been waiting for, and this is the camera that the EOS M should have been!

I really hope that the 36MP A7R is an eye opener for Canon.

Well, I'm not selling anything, but I am getting the A7R. I might start selling some of my Canon gear afterwards, if the A7R is everything I've hoped for.

Will definitely keep some of my favorite EF glass and use it on the Sony.

will wait it out for a bit. The gear does look really lightweight, which is awesome.

initial set of lenses are slow, wouldn't mind shooting full manual to get the faster lenses.

I'm seriously considering the same thing... I love both of my Canon cameras, but I end up using my M most of the time now because of it's size and form, having a camera only slightly larger than that but with the IQ (or better IQ) of my 6D... drooling.

Same reason why I decide to downsize my gears. I am not a pro and I realized the camera was getting in the way. I also was never on the pictures because people would always want me to take them. I went on a 10 days trip on the East Coast and took 300 pictures and I was on 3 of them:cry:
The new A7 series gives me hope that I will get images quality similar to the 5DM3 and keep the size of my NEX.

Same here. Thanks to focus peaking, shooting manual lenses is easy as pie.

The EVF in the A7 and A7R is the best EVF ever made. Hi resolution OLED.

They were definitely not bad, but the colors looked odd in the EVF on the NEX6 and 7 that I tried, I'm hoping the one in the A7 series will be more true to life. The VF is the main thing holding me back... that and I'm really looking forward to getting a 135L :cool:

I'll probably give it a few months to see what happens with it and where the next M is going, if Canon releases a speedbooster type adapter for the M, I think that'd satisfy me.

I'm tempted to preorder the A7 (want the AF for kid sports).

don't need the 36mp, but would be nice............ kids sports vs personal satisfaction......

I love the part where he uses an EF lens on it.

Holy sweetness!

That does look sweet. Canon may as well forget bringing new M bodies to the market, if I need an adaptor either way why buy the Canon?

About the topic of this thread. This is not Sony's first mirrorless FF. The RX1 was the first.

However, these are their first models with interchangeable lens mount.
