    New "Review" of Sony A7R for Landscape

    There is an excellent analysis of the Sony A7R from the standpoint of a very thoughtful and talented American landscape photographer, Michael Frye, in his blog. http://www.michaelfrye.com/landscape...a7r/#more-6081.

    He has been shooting 4x5 and Canon, and his comments are particularly relevant for someone with a complement of high quality Canon lenses.

    Not bad. He looked at the well-publicised complaints for himself and found they did not amount to much in the final analysis - large prints in his case. It does illustrate the steep learning curve old-brand pros are on with the a7r, something easy to overlook at times. Different sets of workarounds, but from the background of superb image quality, not user preferences and marginal quibbles.

    He also makes good mention of the fact that high resolution sensors boost the performance of all half decent lenses, total image quality being a multiplication function. With prints that size being a key part of his business he could invest in the 'back country light' FE55 for a real surprise.

    Good review but honestly everything we have talked about at length already and I do agree with most of his comments as I came to similar conclusions. For me though just nice to see another Pro confirm what I already learned. I did pick up a tip which I know would be kind of fun for Michael as I always like when folks pick up on my comments. The DRO setting for the EVF. Sounds interesting. Nice balanced review and kudos to him.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.
