    I'm back on the iPhone, and far prefer it! :-)

    I look forward to hearing your thought on the new NEX, but for the moment I'll be sticking to my RX1 and the D800's for anything more ambitious. Next...

    I returned mine today, and in so doing ended a 25 year relationship with Samys Cameras. I will never buy another camera from them.

    The Sony rep was in the store today, so I took the camera in...
  3. So this morning I took the little beast out...

    So this morning I took the little beast out again, and this time followed Rifle's suggested settings re manual focus with push button focus lock. There was a lot less moisture in the air too, so I...
  4. Yeah, I'm pretty unimpressed so far, thank...

    Yeah, I'm pretty unimpressed so far, thank heavens I have a two week grace period to return it. I don't think this camera will be with me any longer.
  5. A walk in the park reveals that the A7r isn't...

    A walk in the park reveals that the A7r isn't nearly as nice to use or as instinctual as the RX1. Honestly if they put this chip in the RX1 body I'd take that over this, and based on these results...
  6. I've been so busy I haven't even been able to...

    I've been so busy I haven't even been able to pick up the camera since last Friday! I'll do some D800 compares, but I know that the A7r is nothing like as capable in 80% of situations, but for...
  7. In the last test strip I set the exposure...

    In the last test strip I set the exposure compensation dial to -1/3 to try to balance it, but it still looks a fraction light. It's Impossible to save overexposed highlights, so I never like a...
  8. Test 3 - so at f4.5 it's a fraction crisper all...

    Test 3 - so at f4.5 it's a fraction crisper all round, but not by a huge amount.
  9. Second round of tests taken again one after the...

    Second round of tests taken again one after the other with both cameras on identical settings, the A7r (left) seems a fraction crisper in most of the images, but it is tending to over expose and in...
  10. Hmmmm, I'm not in love. First impression is I...

    Hmmmm, I'm not in love. First impression is I like the RX1 far more, this is way less of a purists camera, so many bells and whistles and far, far less instinctive. Just downloading the first round...

    That chip in a pro body could be a total game changer, I'd jump ship based on how much I've been loving all my Sony kit for sure.
  12. Yep, I had a second RX1 in a box which I'd posted...

    Yep, I had a second RX1 in a box which I'd posted about here, so I traded that for a 7r with the 35 f2.8. I figure if I don't like it I'll just sell it on, but I really want to see how good it is for...
  13. Couldn't resist any longer, on the need to know,...

    Couldn't resist any longer, on the need to know, I need to know! Traded in that unopened RX1 I had and a few other unused bits and bobs, so will report back in a side by side with the RX1 & D800...

    I didn't do anything they looked great here all along. It may have been a browser glitch on your end?
  15. Wow, it really is something in low light, with...

    Wow, it really is something in low light, with all the news, tests and images about it I'm sorely tempted!
  16. At first look it's fantastic!

    At first look it's fantastic!

    Cant wait to see the pix! I had a quick play with the A7 at Samys to get a feel for the focus speed, and I just love how it feels in the hand. They really have done an awesome job with it, now go...
  18. I'm very excited to get your impressions on it,...

    I'm very excited to get your impressions on it, it's going to have to be a big wow to get me to trade in my RX1.
  19. Yeah, if they want a true pro following they need...

    Yeah, if they want a true pro following they need a true pro repair system like CPS and NPS.
  20. Finally watched the film, and honestly still not...

    Finally watched the film, and honestly still not sure how I feel about this. It's another system camera, and it doesn't look like it'll be beating the D800 in speed or ease of use. It seems to have...
  21. Tests in JPG's are pretty irrelevant, because...

    Tests in JPG's are pretty irrelevant, because you're introducing a whole new set of variables, and you're not testing the one thing that actually matters, the results in raw, or NEF.
  22. Is that fact or urban legend? I don't recall...

    Is that fact or urban legend? I don't recall seeing a D4 test alongside a D800 anywhere, but it would interesting to see a direct side by side with the same lens at all ISO's.
  23. Beats me! ?? !:rolleyes:

    Beats me! ?? !:rolleyes:
  24. It's true, the options we have are amazing,...

    It's true, the options we have are amazing, digital photography has really come of age now. I still find it odd that Nikon cling to the smaller sensor in the D4 as it's a body I'd love. the D800...
  25. Except 20MP.

    Except 20MP.
  26. It's a bit pointless with such a small sensor.

    It's a bit pointless with such a small sensor.

    Indeed, I still have my F3's too, my all time favorite camera.

    I'm super excited to hear how you like your A7, what the due date?
  28. I'm quite interested to see where Sony take their...

    I'm quite interested to see where Sony take their SLR line, as it's my understanding that they really want to trump Canon (who already seem dead in the water) and Nikon with their new line of Pro...

    You got me there, I'm not that much of a tech head, I just like taking pictures!
  32. The Sony A7r - it really doesn't live up to the hype!

    Here's Sony's new and long awaited full frame NEX cameras, one with a 36MP chip and one with a 24MP chip.

    The real issue for me will be the range of lenses, the overall sharpness of them...
