Anyone else noticing the number of complaints about the a7rII on other forums are mostly operator user oops and migrating users complaining of things it doesn't have like their other manufacturer cameras had? I remember really seeing this when the original NEX5 was introduced. I think this body because of all the discussion on how well it functions with Canon and Nikon glass may even experience even more of this sort of mud slinging than the NEX5 did.
Just amazes me .. Everyone could read its features prior to purchase and would know what it had or didn't but here comes in the con column issues that should of been known coming in or issues if they would of used the manual they would of avoided.
One site in particular has some real mega minds that get far too deep into the tech end that I don't think they could ever be happy with any camera made by anyone anywhere. I read their babble and just walk away shaking my head in amazement.
For me if a camera has great IQ and fits my needs and wants its a great camera. All cameras are compromises and we work to their strengths and away from their weaknesses or find work arounds. I have been like that since my first Honeywell Spotmatic to today. But the world is a complex place and full of a variety of people with a even more complex mental array of thinking patterns and the way they achieve their expectations. I do wish though that some would become more involved with the spec sheet gong in and the manual once they commit and get their new gear. Imo the complaints like those noted here just cloud the waters and raise too many false flags. Now if someone finds a legacy lens that works or doesn't that was not know going in or a feature that was or wasn't mentions in the specs those type complaints or accolades give value.
Mine is 30 miles away and on the move and from what I see is going to be my definition of a great camera This comment is brought to you by a guy waiting on a delivery truck and observations he see's around the web so it may well just be anxious babble
