    Valery, I like all of the drama in your shot. The sharp chunks of ice, the solidness of the train trestle, and a very ominous looking sky. SigStatistics: Posted by smulnik — Sat Jan 20, 2018 11:09 pm

Sony’s A7R II has a unique position in the mirrorless ILC world, creating the largest image files at over 42 megapixels from an in-body five axis stabilised sensor with exceptional performance given by backside illuminated CMOS.

My reviews in print of the Sony A7R II have now appeared, in the British Journal of Photography, . . . → Read More: Sony A7R II review by David Kilpatrick

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

Although it’s not Alpha, this product announcement – embargoed until 5am UK time, 23rd June, though no doubt by adhering to the embargo we will be a day later than hundreds of websites breaking it – speaks volumes for the impact of Sony’s Alpha system, its interformat lens compatibility, and the future of non-SLR systems.
