Sony A7(r) Mirrorless Full Frame Camera

Sony A7

Sony launched the A7(r) camera today. It's a full frame camera without a mirror (like a Leica M). Also known as an Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera (MILC).
It was something I didn't expect (mainly because I'm not that into the Sony rumors). The release of a full frame E-mount camera startled me somewhat. Why? Because the E-mount cameras today (Sony NEX cameras) are well known to work with various lens mount adapters (e.g. Leica M-mount, Nikon F-mount, etc.).

This camera could replace my Nikon D300. I mainly use that camera for macro and the occasional telephoto. I can still use my Nikon lenses on this body through an adapter. Even my Leica M-lenses can be used. This could be the camera to rule them all (all being MY current cameras). It's light, small (smaller than the M9 or the new M type-240) and packs a lot of (photographic) power.

I know what I want for X-Mas

Steve Huff has some additional images from the camera in various setup's (mainly with Leica lenses :-))
