So Sony announced their newest flagship camera and it got a lot of hype. And after my initial enthusiasm cooled down a bit I collect my thoughts and ask myself the essential question: Would the a7rII improve my photography if I upgraded from my Alpha 7?
The specs tell us that the camera will sport a 42MP back side illuminated (BSI) sensor.

What is a L-bracket?
A L-bracket is a peace of metal which serves about three functions:
It makes it possible to
mount the camera in portrait orientation on a tripod It is a more
solid connection to the camera than quick release plates because it has a much bigger area of contact to the camera. It increases the size of the grip and
makes holding the camera easier.
For me an L-brackets has improved the everyday experience of my Sony Alpha 7 and I think too few people know about L-brackets so I want to share my experience in this post.

I wanted to see how my new
FE 2/28 compares against my older manual lenses, so I ran a comparison between four lenses:
Minolta MD 2.8/28 is very small, light and affordable The
Carl Zeiss Distagon 2.8/28 T* enjoys a very good reputation and it is a bit more expensive at around 250€. The
Minolta MC 2/28 is the oldest and fastest of the bunch, it was introduced in 1975. My copy has some fungus in it and other copies might be better. The
Sony FE 2/28 is brand new and the most expensive one at 450€.
Minolta MD 2.8/28 | Zeiss 2.8/28 | Sony FE 2/28 | Minolta MC 2/28

Matt had a review copy of the Samsung NX1 at his hand so we met up and I could get some hands on experience with this new camera which created quite some buzz.
This is in no way an in depth review, just some thoughts and impressions after using it for about five hours.
