Camera weenies can argue until they drop about subjective qualities like bokeh yumminess or ergonomics. For the folks who like to stick with numbers, however, there’s software maker and testing titan DxOMark, which recently declared the Zeiss 55mm FE the best autofocus lens it’s ever tested. Read more…
The usual warnings apply:
- Do not try this at home. This post was made by semi-trained, semi-professional repair technicians who sort of know what they’re doing.
- The following blog post contains graphic images of the inside of a very nice camera. If such things make you squeamish, don’t read further.
- No cameras were harmed in the making of this blog post. The camera has been fully reassembled and is functioning normally.
Ever since we here at LensRentals first tested a Sony A7R, we were dying to take a look under the hood. Say what you will about Sony as a company, but they create some of the most elegantly-engineered camera bodies we’ve seen. Plus, the A7R is something of a groundbreaking camera, and we wanted to see how they crammed all that stuff into its little body.

It seems Sony’s intent on raining all over Leica’s parade. First, the company releases the A7 and A7R — AF-equipped mirrorless full-frame alternatives to Leica’s cameras — and now Sony is supposedly working on a black & white-only full-frame shooter of its own to compete against the M Monochrome.
