OK. I totally missed that. :oops:

I'm looking now to see if it will have full AF functionality.

With the latest Metabones adapter, yes it will have AF, but don't expect it to be very fast. Try focussing in liveview right now and that's about what you can expect.

Sony has some of the best focus-assist features out there, so even if it comes down to manual focus, you won't miss much.

Wow, this requires some serious thought. I have been waiting for Canon to come out with something but this might just be enough to switch.

A FF D800 sensor that you can use Leica M glass with...That does sound interesting.

Lol looks like another option for us airfrogusmc!

Guess we should start saving for the Leica 50mm cron APO to use the resolving power of the sensor! ;)

Or just let OCD drive your decision making :lol: I'll be getting one (A7r) for sure. And all you need is an adapter.

If you own Sony Alpha lenses, the new mirror adapter lets you use phase-detect autofocus with them, which some sources claim is even faster than on the A99.

x2.

I was seriously thinking of picking up a D800E just because Canon has nothing to compare with it right now. The cost of that camera plus a few lenses made it quite tough to justify right now.

Given that nothing seems to be on the horizon in this range with Canon (and if/when anything does come out I'd expect it to be way out of my price range), this is a reeeealy attractive option (assuming it won't be stupidly expensive).

Look no further than this video. http://www.youtube.com …c&feature=playe​r_embedded (external link)

Fast forward to the 11:25 mark if you want. There you will see a 17-40L on the A7R, with auto focus demonstration.

It won't be as fast as on a Canon DSLR, but what more can you ask from the smallest lightest full frame camera? :)

Based on what I read, yes, it's full frame but if you're using E mount, you'll have to switch the camera to Crop-mode - turning it into a NEX (on steroids). Essentially you have to use their A-mounts with adapter or new FE lenses for full frame goodness.

Sounds quite promising so far.

Only thing I'm wondering about is the price of the body and adapters. Would love to use my Leica lenses on it!

This will be a great option for people who don't want to go the Leica route as they were the only ones with FF "mirrorless" bodies in the market.

"The A7R camera will be offered as a body-only for about $2300."

No need to "jump ship" since the metabones adapter will let you use your EF lenses. :cool:

a year is a good amount of time to guage this system, but at it's current price, you can probably get just the body and use BOTH systems without jumping ship. I'm probably done with any new canon acquisitions at this point. There are some things I dont like about the sony setup, and some I like better than canon.

I can really see myself shooting both at this point.

+1

The A7R will be a nice camera to have while waiting for Canon to release a high resolution, high dynamic range sensor, in a small, light and affordable package.

I think you all know how long this might take. :lol:

When Canon finally release their new sensor tech, they are going to stuff it into a big 1D body and charge 7.000 bucks for it.

Why jump...just pick up the Sony and continue to use your Canon lens. Not really a jump...just augment with a wonderful sensor...that Canon cannot seem to deliver.
