Field Test: Sony A7R l Brian Smith Pictures

Field Test: Sony A7R l Brian Smith Pictures | Sony Alpha 7 & Sony Alpha 7R | Scoop.it

Six months ago a group of my fellow editorial portrait photographers were emailing each other about what wanted in their dream compact interchangeable lens camera:

 

“Digital Contax G2 / Minolta CLE”
“I’d like interchangeable lenses”
“Uses my old Leica M glass”
“Full Frame”
“Built-in EVF with live view when shooting video”
“RX1 gets close”

 

Sony’s newly announced A7R and A7 are the lightest interchangeable lens cameras ever made. They should really hit a sweet spot photographers have been craving...

» Sony a7 torture test with Leica, Zeiss, Voigtlander rangefinder lenses - TechTalk with Ron Scheffler

» Sony a7 torture test with Leica, Zeiss, Voigtlander rangefinder lenses - TechTalk with Ron Scheffler | Sony Alpha 7 & Sony Alpha 7R | Scoop.it

I was able to briefly borrow and test a preproduction Sony a7 camera along with the new Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* 35mm f/2.8, Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* 55mm F1.8 and Sony 28-70mm f/3.5–5.6 OSS FE lenses. Unfortunately it wasn’t the a7R, in which I am more interested for the purposes of adapting rangefinder lenses. But this provided a good opportunity nonetheless to generate some images to help me (and hopefully also you) determine whether or not the a7 is a possible platform for rangefinder lenses...

Sony A7 Review: Hands-On Preview

Sony A7 Review: Hands-On Preview | Sony Alpha 7 & Sony Alpha 7R | Scoop.it

A little over a decade ago, enthusiast photographers were clamoring for an affordable APS-C digital SLR. That dream has long since become a reality, but for some, the dream wasn't big enough. They've been asking for an altogether different -- yet still affordable -- camera. They needed it to have a bigger sensor, and to drop the bulky mirror box of an SLR. Until now, they could choose one or the other. Sony has changed all that, with the launch of the full-frame Sony A7 and A7R mirrorless cameras.

Sony announces A7 and A7R: first full-frame mirrorless ILC cameras - First Impressions Review

Sony announces A7 and A7R: first full-frame mirrorless ILC cameras -  First Impressions Review | Sony Alpha 7 & Sony Alpha 7R | Scoop.it

Sony's new A7 and A7R bring full-frame imaging to the company's mirrorless ILC lineup, using the established E-mount. While they're not quite the 'full-frame NEX' that some loyal Sony users might have been imagining, the 24MP A7 and 36MP A7R are impressive, innovative products that demand to be taken seriously (with a price-point to match). We've had the opportunity to use pre-production samples of both new models, and we've prepared a hands-on first impressions review covering off their key features, operation, and early indications of their performance.

Sony A7R Review: Hands-On Preview

Sony A7R Review: Hands-On Preview | Sony Alpha 7 & Sony Alpha 7R | Scoop.it

Life is all about compromises, but fans of full-frame and mirrorless cameras will be thrilled to hear that Sony has just removed a compromise we've long taken as an unfortunate fact of life. If you wanted a mirrorless camera, you had to live with -- at best -- an APS-C sensor. If you wanted a full-frame sensor, it had to come along with a bulky mirror box. There was no middle ground -- at least, not until now. With the simultaneously-launched, full-frame Sony A7R and A7 mirrorless cameras, the company has demolished the status quo.

Sony A7R Hands-On

Sony A7R Hands-On | Sony Alpha 7 & Sony Alpha 7R | Scoop.it

Well, this is a pleasant surprise! Unless you already know this because you've been reading the rumour sites you'll be pleased to learn that Sony has just (Oct, 16, 2013) thrown the camera industry a bit of an aggressive curveball with the introduction of the Alpha 7 and Alpha 7R. An also new and fascinating compact, the RX10 was also introduced today.

I was able to spend a few days in early October with an A7R, and this is a brief hands-on report. The camera was pre-production and I had no raw software available, so I won't be commenting in any detail on image quality. But, given Sony's past excellence in sensor design there's little reason to imagine that it will be anything other than first-rate. It certainly appears to be, based on my informal testing so far.
