Sorry, the other answer is wrong. The current e-mount lenses will work on this camera, however they will be in crop mode. This means the camera will detect that it is not a full frame lens and only use part of the sensor. In reverse, the full frame lenses will work on the current NEX line up. In that situation it will just waste the capability of the lens.
How can I trigger wireless this camera ? May 7, 2014
Easiest is by using the Sony app (I have it on the iPhone) called PlayMemories. The a7R has built in wifi. Join it to your wifi network. Join your iphone to the wifi network. Once you use the app to find your phone, you will see the screen in live view and can take the picture.
Yes, it has been done. See the Steve Huff photography website. Steve's site is heavily attended by Leica folks. Steve says that, with those lenses, he gets better results with the A7 and A7R than he gets with a Leica M9! Of course the A7 and A7R are not as compact. The website will probably tell you where to find an adaptor. If not, you could contact Steve through the site.
Does Sony make a flash adapter to enable Sony branded flash made for traditional Sony/Minolta SLR camera? Is the in-body image stabilization functionality not implemented in this body? Oct 17, 2013
You can get Olympus OMD or Panasonic GX7 with in-body stabilization. Yes, in-body stabilization is still quite rare on DSLR and interchangeable lens camera, maybe due to the size requirements, laws of physics, and cost reasons.
What problems if any have people noted with the Leica 35/2 ASPH summicron and the Voigtlander 15/4.5 M and 25/4 SM lenses? Jan 2, 2014
Have not used the Leica 35mm f2 asph on the camera, but the the Leica 21mm and wider do not work.
It hasn't been field tested to know for sure but it is weathersealed and it should withstand light moisture with normal care.
Hi, Sony Alpha A7K is a derivative from the base model A7. "K" stands for kit lens for which the included kit lens is the SEL2870. As for A7R, its newer version of A7 which gives you 36.8 MP resolution. -Ely
