New Sony Cameras - 'Imaging Beyond Our Eyes'.....What???

New Sony Cameras - 'Imaging Beyond Our Eyes'.....What???
'On a very busy day for new camera announcements (Leica Q as well) Sony put out three updates - RX10 and RX100 new models and most interestingly for me the Sony A7r II. 42.5MP, 5-axis stabilisation, 4K video in camera, silent shutter mode and the new A7 series design. Apart from 290 shots per battery charge (Sony's own figures) this is a powerhouse of a camera (which unfortunately lacks a battery to power it properly however!!) and I'm sure I'll be trying one of these out. (Good job my Meike battery grip will fit)'

'I have nothing but praise for Sony and their cameras. They produce what are probably the best mirrorless interchangeable cameras out, but these lenses. What are they thinking? This stuff is no alternative to DSLR systems, in fact some of these lenses plus a body actually weigh in heavier and more unwieldy than what I'm using as my Nikon Df combinations.'

Sony FE16-35mm f4 ZA OSS Vario-Tessar T* Lens - Wide-angles - creative tool and / or Photoshop opportunity?

Sony FE16-35mm f4 ZA OSS Vario-Tessar T* Lens - Wide-angles - creative tool and / or Photoshop opportunity?
'With the arrival yesterday of my Leica T 11-23mm zoom lens, I'm once again into the issue of wide-angle lenses and how much 'correction' I do to the files. Because optically, these lenses can prove the most challenging of all, particularly when, as these days, they come in the form of zooms. And while they can provide us with some dramatic results, anyone who has worked with them will know that of all the lenses we have at our disposal, these can be the ones that take up more of post production time than anything else.'

Mirrorless Interchangable - Where Does It Go In 2015? Part 5 - SONY
'Sony have come some way since those first NEX cameras. One photographer I know said to me 'Who wants a camera that looks like a bar of soap!?' He's now using an A7r. The real 'game changer' had to be the NEX-7. '24MP on APS-C?? And you know it's actually decent quality.'
