    I agree with what Marc said. It is a bunch of bull about a demanding A7R. If anyone snapped with a NEX-6 handheld then the A7R is even much easier because of the better ergonomics.

    Also, one guy posted an analysis of Stve Huff's review (sonyalpharumors). You should check it out. Hilarious. :-)
    Yes, Steve Huff's reviews must be read in context of who he is and what he does. Everyone frequenting his site knows that. But I think he nevertheless makes a valid point: if you shoot primarily hand-held, you're less likely to reap the benefits of the A7R's 36MP sensor, and might most often get results that are no better than with the A7 - but they wouldn't be any worse, either, I would add.

    Re: A7 or A7r

    No, he does not have a valid point at all. People have been shooting NEX-6 and even the NEX-7 handheld.

    He is trying to keep his olympus fans and his leica fans on even keel and interested. It is a difficult balancing act.

    To quote him to justify anything is pretty much useless.

    Thanks. No, I don't think so. That's not my experience with the D800E.
    The combination of faster shutter speed, e.g. 1/(3*FL) and excellent high ISO makes it possible.
    Of course, what I am looking forward to is 5-axis IBIS and 54 MP integrated into the follow on model of the A7R.
    With best regards, K-H.

    All right, I'll never quote Steve Huff again…

    Re: A7 or A7r

    For me, the A7r was the clear choice, coming from A850 and A99 which I will keep. Looking forward to using Canon 24mm and 17mm T/S lenses as well as Zeiss ZF.2 and ZE lenses and possibly other Canon EF lenses (zooms?) - assuming the autofocus via Metabones III is OK.

    The SLR and SLT cameras will be more for handheld, the mirrorless for tripod/landscape use. For now, still keeping IQ260 with Contax 645. I am trying to avoid technical cams with my back, but that would also be an option. Nikon is on the way out over the next year or so, I am afraid. Canon system is a keeper, we'll see what they're up to early in 2014, I hear.

    There is no single system yet that can satisfy all needs/wants.

    Re: A7 or A7r

    For me the A7 was the clear choice. Better AF, better with some RF lenses, faster fps, and the biggest selling point for me: only 24MP. My D800 can take a rest for many tasks now, and only get pulled out when I really need it.

    I think its great if people have fun with new cameras, but why does it have to end in bashing other cameras?

    I am glad most discussions here on getdpi are more balanced.

    I quite agree Tom, the contrast between Steve's euphoria and the comments is more than I can bear.

    Kai's off the wall reviews on the other Hand I always enjoy.

    All the best
