Sometime in November if I remember correctly. Pre-orders start later this month.

DPreview stated early December for availability.

That's my one reason for holding back. It does not seem to have a Bulb setting and there is no wired remote. That would mean that you can't lock the shutter for things like star trail photography etc. I will wait for some clarification but frankly, that's the only reason I am not selling most of my Canon gear immediately.

Is there a remote available for NEX bodies?

Anybody going to order it with the $1000 55mm f1.8?

Lens prices seem a bit nuts.

I don't know about NEX, but what I've seen so far with the A7r indicates an Android app to control the camera.

I didn't see a Bulb exposure setting - just the usual P, Av, Tv and M.

I hope you can still use exposures longer than 30s...

B&H specs list Bulb:

Shutter Speeds 1/8000 to 30 sec., bulb

Hope it's *very* early December. As in, December 1. I fly out to Patagonia on December 3...

The way it works on NEX cameras is - you put the camera into M mode and scroll the shutter speed down past 30s and it turns into a B, there's your bulb mode. As for remote, another person already mentioned that you can just use a smartphone or tablet to have full control over the camera.

Depends on where you order from, Japan and Asia are getting it early.

I acquired an expensive camera so I can hang out in forums, annoy wedding photographers during formals and look down on P&S users... all the while telling people it's the photographer, not the camera.

I've been searching for reports on the dynamic range from the A7R, but could not find anything except a few words from this field test: http://briansmith.com/​sony-a7r-field-test/ (external link)

Quote: "Thanks to the lack of AA filter, the images are incredibly sharp and the files look really clean. The dynamic range is really incredible holding detail from highlights to the deepest shadows. I’m told that the BIONZ X image processing engine is the key. Whatever it is, the files are awesome."

I wouldn't doubt it since I own the D600, D800, and D800E. :)

If the 55/1.8 turns out to be a baby version of the new Zeiss 55/1.4, a grand may not be that much, I doubt Sony would launch a camera system with 24 & 36mp resolutions to start, and not also develop lenses that can resolve such detail. We'll see!

I want to see some A7R test shots with an adapted Zeiss 55/1.4. I think it could be a killer combo. :)

Looks like Fuji is about to join the full frame mirrorless fray.

Fixed lens, but who knows..

All I know is that my next camera won't be a Canon.

5 new primes from Samyang are coming to the A7 / A7R.

ETA 2 months from now.

Samyang 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC
Samyang 24mm f/1.4 ED AS IF UMC
Samyang T-S 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC
Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC
Samyang 85mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC

They should all be great, except the T-S lens, which has proven to be kinda "mediocre" on other mounts.

I do know that their 14mm is one of the best primes ever made.
