Korean Photographer has posted an auto focus speed test for the Sony A7 and A7r. I'll hopefully be getting the Sony A7r next week. I'll post similar tests as well, except I want to see how fast it works with the Metabones EF Lens to Sony NEX Smart Adapter, Mark III. I've heard it's slightly slower and I've also heard that it works perfect. Well they are back in stock and mine is in the mail so we'll know in a week or so. I'd like to see how it works with my Canon 16-35mm f2.8L II since that is my staple lens.
I'm actually really excited about the new Sony A7r. It will be nice to have a camera that is a bit smaller and has focus assist. I also want to see how it works with it's noisy shutter. I don't mind a loud shutter as long as there is no mirror. On my Canon 5Dmkii, if the surface wasn't 100% stable the flipping of the mirror and shutter would always vibrate the camera slightly giving me not so sharp images. Hopefully this won't happen with the Sony.
And just because I got a Sony camera doesn't mean I'll be getting a PS4. After playing with both extensively, the XBox One is still a better all around box. If only Microsoft would make a camera. 😉 Just kidding.
Today's Photo – Grand Canyon Horizons
The Grand Canyon is one of those amazing places you sort of have to see at least once in your life. Just so you know. Pictures never do it justice. It's so much more breath taking and massive than you could ever imagine.
Taken with the 5Dmkii and the 70-200mm f2.8 IS II lens.
