When I first bought the A7R, it seemed relatively light and small enough to carry around all the time but I wanted something smaller and more compact. I bought the A6000 which is a great "pocketable" camera but I have found its sensor and crop factor limiting especially with the kit lens (that's what makes it small). I love the A7RII but am finding it has become less portable. I think it is a combination of weight and recently the larger sized lenses - either that or I am getting old. In any event, I am looking forward to a small/light camera with excellent image quality which I will find easy to carry around with me all the time. I am looking forward to see what the RX1RII can do...

It is almost Christmas guys! Hehe.

The a7rII certainly grew to the point where it isn't as nice of a compact option as the original a7 body. I use to shove the a7r + 35 f2.8 into a coat pocket. I miss being able to do that.

The cv40 has gave me the small setup I was wanting at times, just need my helicoid to hurry up and arrive as the mfd on the standard adaptor is restrictive. I'd love a rx1rii but it's miles out my price range

There's your answer right there I reckon. In your shoes I would sell the 5DSR and add the rx1rii

I am sorely tempted to get one. Here is my situation: I got the 5DS R, love the camera, think it's great.....BUT I am so nuts about my a7R II that I literally have to make myself use the 5DS R. Meanwhile I've also been craving a 35mm lens for a long time. I've had/tried several of them, the FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA being the best. But, my copy was defective and the reason I never re-purchased it is I struggled with the radioactive green fringing in the bokeh (and also from a trust issue regarding Sony's lens manufacturing process). So, the idea of a Zeiss lens absolutely optimized to a 42 MP sensor is extremely appealing to me. The price: not so much, but the way I look at these things is all about usage level, and I would probably use the heck out of an RX1R II as compared to my 5DS R.


Invest in lenses not camera bodies - I'm trying to save you from yourself - I too own both a 5DSR and A7Rii so at least I think I am able to comment.

I can completely understand where you are coming from about lust for this RX1RII but you already own this sensor in another camera and it will, in 18months, become dated - so don't do it.

If the 5DSR is not for you - sell it now - but make the decisions independently.

I continue to own my 5DSR because for me, the wedding camera reliability, ergonomics, OCF, IA Servo, +++ makes it a keeper for 'me'.

From what I have seen about your posts - it is landscapes - therefore sell the 5DSR tomorrow - yes tomorrow.

But do not buy this new slim downed A7Rii - you already own one.

If you are lusting after the greatest 35mm lens in the world then buy it - but I don't know what that lens is - there are lots of good ones.

Given the lenses I can see that you own, I would look at the Otis 28 for perfection or the Sony 28F2, which I own as my only native Sony lens, for lightness, F2 and video. Without correction there is major distortion in the Sony 28F2 - but it makes the camera so small and light it is great.

I see you also own the Canon 40 F2.8 - another of my favourite cheap lenses and it makes a perfect light setup on the A7Rii - it is great.


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

I love it Paul. That's a great "know thyself" encouragement post. I do regard the RXR1 II as a very tempting product and it is a consideration. However, it is only one of several considerations. The Otus 28 is indeed another strong consideration of mine (as is the Canon 35L II).

To be perfectly candid though, the most likely scenario has me using the 5DS R to fund something entirely differently.

Anyway, thanks for the dose of reality. Much appreciated. :)

What? an a77ii arrives tomorrow....no excuse as to why other than a huge price drop...maybe because of the announced a68 but its so far only in Asia/Europe ?????

i agree i followed your posts on the canon side,with this new a7r2 and your manual focus lenses your level has shot way up,especially with the 200mm hand held. i have a minolta 200mm 2,8 and mine hand held don't compare to yours,composition is great and processing is out of this world. congrats
