    .Brilliant series of a backstage atmosphere that are neatly shot, Sig. Very enjoyable and curious to observe the quiet wait before each and everyone of them thrust themselves into action on the stage. Thanks for sharing. Congratulations on your new camera upgrade. Hope we see more photos from whichever camera/lens you prefer to use. YildizStatistics: […]

    Thank you Sig for the detailed answer. I seem to recall that one adapter is better for SSM lenses and so no good for non-SSM lenses like the ZA 85 or the ZA 135. Last question, do you see a difference in auto focus performance between the 70-200 versus the 85?Thanks again.Statistics: Posted by jbtaylor […]

    Thanks Sury, JT, & Valery!JT, for normal everyday photography, I usually pair the A7 with several small Minolta prime lenses that I have (24, 50, 135). They look and feel perfectly at home with the camera and adapter. A newer large prime like the 85 ZA is borderline. It's only when I attach the heavier […]

We’ve got one from the first Sony ILCE-A7R3 delivery in the UK, and with a first review of two pages appearing in Cameracraft January/February 2018 from tests in early December, I will be following up with a fuller printed review and more on-line articles here as the camera’s potential unfolds.

Bad science and dissing the Sony A7 FE concept

No doubt everyone’s seen the article on Petapixel which can best be described as successful clickbait – by Sator, essentially claiming that the whole idea of mirrorless full frame is flawed. Well, the good news is that this article is more flawed than the flaws it’s claiming to point out.

Sony A7R II, RX10 II, RX100 IV – making everything else obsolete

(Updated June 15th after press conference)

The new Sony A7R II is the camera I’ve been waiting for, which everyone has predicted, and which seems to tick every box without having a huge price label on its own. I find the $3,200 (UK coinfirmed £2,600) matches its stated specifications well. Others may disagree, but . . . → Read More: Sony A7R II, RX10 II, RX100 IV – making everything else obsolete
