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.

Re: Sony will announce A7r tonite

I received my (slightly-used) A7R body this week and am rejoicing at being able to use my OM and Tamron SP super-wides as I did on my OM4. I also have a Canon FD adapter for my Kiron 105mm macro and an M42 adapter for my macro extensions and thread-adapted M39s.

Congratulations ..

Is the body in the condition you have expected - and was promised?

It is my assessment but I would agree with " It is in very good condition" and could check on "with only 11411 shutter actuations" if I found out how.

You'll have great results with all those lenses & more... the adaptors are cheap... get the remote if you intend using longer lenses - I found it near impossible with 200/300mm until I used the remote or on a beanbag.
My 40D was a wee' bit tired & have been looking for months for a good 70D but as usual I spied and bought a 7D on a whim (Boy, I'm glad I did & a good price), arrived yesterday, absolutely mint 14K shutter actions... I hope your Sony proves to be the exact count as described too. The wee' Sony camera's are crazy good...  cool

Thanks. I have done almost 100% close ups and macro this past year. This has taken my macro a long way but I need to take, literally, a wider view of the word at times, as I did in my film days.

I had been considering a Canon D full frame, with the MPE-65 as an attraction, but that lens is now unrepairable, and I have two lenses which, between them, do as good or better jobs with no electrics to fail.
