Re: Sony will announce A7r tonite

Pre-ordered the A7 right away, because I love my Nex 5N and want a bigger sensor. smile

The performance with wide angle M mount lenses seems to be disappointing on the A7: http://www.ronscheffler.com/techtalk/?p=224
Still, that's only a portion of the primes that can be adapted on this body.
