At long last, when every man and his dog has had his paws on the Sony A7, my A7r is ready for collection at my local dealer, R.G.Lewis in Holborn. For some weeks I have been twiddling my adapters (M and R) in anticipation of getting to grips with the new wundervollframe Japanese upstart. I’ve spent the time reading dozens of reviews of the camera and will be well equipped to give my verdict. This weekend, though, I am nose-to-grindstone at Eric Kim’s London streettog workshop. I’ve decided to take the M Monochrom and a simple 35mm Summicron along for the ride. So the new Sony will have to wait until Monday before I can start to appreciate it. I intend to carry it to Berlin next week for a peek at the various Kristkindlemarkt’s dotted around the Prussian capital. They should be good for some good colour.
