Sony - Sony A7/A7R: almost the perfect cameras if...
they came with in-body IS. An inbult flash would also be highly welcome (as
fill-in). I guess in an effort to make the bodies so small there was no space
left for in-body IS or a flash.
The A7R then has no phase-AF. Not exactly suitable for sports photography. And
not suitable for fashion photography either, because they left out the AA
filter. Here I guess Sony must have thought that most lenses are so unsharp
that they limit the effective resolution on the A7R to perhaps less than 20MP.
Otherwise it's a huge step forward for Sony. Sony is completing the transition
to mirror-less cameras (which Nikon and Canon still have to go through). The
design of the A7 and A7R is future-proof. All that Sony needs to do now is to
deliver a better implementation (in-body IS, phase AF, inbuilt flash) and more
