Random thoughts. 

I’ve been using the Sony A7R for a few weeks now, although I have just over 4k shots on the counter I think I’m starting to figure it out.  I haven’t encountered the vibration issue that some people are complaining about with telephoto lenses, so no big deal there.  I do find that 36mp is too much …

Full review of the Rokinon 16mm F/2 for Sony ‘a’ and ‘e’ mount.

New FF a7 series announced, along with a bunch of lenses.

Sony makes it official; the a7 and a7r are real!  This camera has been hyped for a couple of months now, so it’s not a surprise unless you’ve been living under a rock.  Both versions can be pre-ordered now.  It looks like the new lenses are fairly small, …
