The new Sony A7R2 42 MP camera body is truly a breakthrough. There is nothing remotely close to its capabilities of which we are aware.
The lead photo of the eclipse last week was shot using a Canon 400 F2.8 lens with a Metabones 3 adaptor.
Like shooting in the dark? This is ISO 52,000. And no, the ISO number, 52 with three zeroes, is not a misprint.
The dynamic range of the full frame, 42MP processor is several stops better than any of our Canon gear.
Add the ability to use other manufacturers’ lenses, and the 7R2 is a game changer indeed.
The shaft of light above is coming from the moon.
Between extremely sharp focusing, the file size, and elimination of a processor filter, we are finding it routine to crop tightly and then double image size.
The rest of the industry must feel like they’ve been struck by lightning.
We are in the process of selling our Canon pro bodies and most of our L-series glass.
