I have not kept up with these new Sony cameras.
What is it that the A7 or A7r offers that Canon doesn't?

Just curious.

Image quality, basically.

It's like a miniature MF digital back - excellent image quality (comparable to 40-50MP MF backs and you can put it behind almost any lens. When you buy the A7 or A7r, you're buying a sensor, not a camera system.

Gene, I don't care which lens you use... You just take fine pictures sir.

Thanks very much.

Picked up the A7R a week ago, here's a test shot of my city. I'm happy with this new sensor, can't wait to use it for my pro work.

Because of the rainy weather, I really haven't been able to shoot with the 24-70 much. On my Flickr page, I only have five images from that lens beginning with the interior shot. (The pink house is an old edit shot on my 5D3). If you view the shots of the March Field Museum, all those were shot with the 17-40 mounted on my a7r.

My first impressions are the native 24-70 lens seems to focus very fast. I'm impressed with the sharpness but there is some softness at the edges and some barrel distortion too at 24mm. Basically, I bought the 24-70 lens for the convenience of it, when I want to travel light and for video because of its image stabilization (oss) as well as continuous focusing. So far, I'm very pleased with it.

I use the Metabones smart adapter III and although auto focus is slow, it seems very accurate and is how I used the 17-40 lens at the air museum.

BTW, do you live near Cardiff? My ancestors used to own St. Fagans. :)

Hi Gene,
Thanks for your opinions of the two, food for thought for me. Both are definitely capable on the A7r that's for sure :) Your recent pictures have terrific colours in them.
And yes I'm near Cardiff, I'm actually nearer to St Fagans than Cardiff, it's about 10 minutes away. It's a beautiful place, have you ever been ? ? ? When did your ancestors
live there ? ? ?

I sent a pm but thought I'd answer here too in case anyone might be interested.

Sir Edward Lewis 1560-1623, who was my 10th great grand uncle, purchased the St. Fagans estate in 1616.

His grandfather, my 12th grandfather, was also Sir Edward Lewis of Van, 1508-1560 and he was the first to adopt the surname of Lewis.

Here is the Van Mansion as it appears today.

It was my 9th great grandfather William Lewis that first came to America in 1630.
