    • We're just gonna have to agree to disagree
    • Damn @lucabutera how come you couldn’t have made this when I owned an NX1 ?! Lmao good job man it looks really good 
    • I guess it just isn't a camera for you. I don't think I would want the A7s as my ONLY camera if I was shooting for pay but I would still certainly want it in my bag and for the things it shines at, it is still better than most (especially low light/high ISO). Many of your issues are subjective though and that is fine, you have to live with the camera after all. I have never had a problem with colour from any camera from any brand and as to ergonomics, I actually prefer the A7s to any other camera I have used film or digital. The A7s (and the same with the other two first gen A7 cameras) is NOT a camera for AF with Canon lenses I think.     It IS ok for static things and the likes of ducks on a pond but certainly not for anything moving fast or far.     The later FF E mount cameras are much better with adapted AF lenses. AFC is horrible but AFS with native lenses is just fine and works in almost no light long after other cameras have stopped (and is ok for me for concerts and pub gigs, often in very low light). 12mp is something some people wont want now (I often shoot jpegs at gigs and the file sizes at the highest level jpegs are just right for emailing as taken).    I don't crop much so it is fine for me. I can not agree on the construction either as mine is around three years old and used daily and had a lot of use and abuse and all that has happened is a tiny bit of paint off where the A7s logo is.      It is not a weather sealed camera (just light dust and moisture resistance) but is fine in very light rain so far though I am careful in that regard. The price of AF native mount lenses has been a bit high compared to others though maybe not so much others that are similar (IE greater choices) but some cheaper ones are appearing.    For what it is worth the Sony Zeiss 55 1.8 is worth paying a bit more than the average 50mm and the FE 85 1.8 is an absolute  bargain.      The 28-70 FE kit lens is also quite good for a kit lens and not stressed by the 12mp of the A7s.       I hope you find what you are after!
    • With a recent version metabones adapter the A7r2’s AF not at all bad  for stills. Wouldn’t want to use it for sports though. For video - forget it and use MF
    • The background just looks terrible to me (struggling to put in writing why) I dunno, but it is not smooth.       I have used canon L glass (EF and FD) on APSC and it doesn't like that often to me though depends on the lens. As to sharpness, well you would be a better judge of the full size shots than me but it does look like I would expect from most fast lenses with a very tiny area that is in focus and sharp and the depth of field in some of those shots looks like it might be around an inch with not much of the image within that inch?   In any case, thanks for posting.
