    Decided not to wait for Guy and just ordered a A7R from B&H with free 2-day shipping. Should be here in Jackson Hole 12/24. Also ordered the Metabones Canon adaptor which was in stock so we should have both in a couple days. Merry Christmas to us!

    As near as I can tell it looks like the A7 and NEX7 take the same battery. Am I correct or do I need to order a spare of the A7R? Hope it's the same as between the 2 NEX7s we have (IR and color) we've got 4-batteries.

    Great news! Thank you for sharing at least I don't need to run out and get another battery.

    Merry Christmas to you as well.

    It likes batteries. I will have 7 , I think I went overboard but I figure in the cold they will drop off faster.

    UPDATE:

    The 7r along with the metabones adapter arrived here about an hour ago. Single word description is WOW! Powered it up set date and time and figured out how to shoot manually. Put a Canon 17-40 on it and it still small!

    We've been shooting an Otter family the past couple days and plan on taking this out in the morning to try out the 135 and 300mm lens, figure the camera will look more like a lens cap.

    Way cool!
