Reichmann is certainly no industry shill and has a policy of not accepting equipment from manufacturers. In the above article he also said:

He's not the only reviewer that i've read that had positive comments about the rendering of the A7s but i don't want to spend much more time on this. however, if you read more about the development of the A7S, you'll find that the downside of the large sensels is that when there's adequate light, the large sensors overload with photons too quickly. Sony licensed some new technology from another company to deal with the overload situation. So is it the larger sensels that produce this pleasant rendering, or is it this new technology that Sony licensed that produces the pleasant look? I don't know.
It's no biggie for me but just curious where he got that "reminds him of medium format look" about the A7s' rendering. There are simply too many factors to consider the final look of an image to just base it on just sensor size, or resolution, or sensel technology, because to create any image, it's a combination of sensor, sensor tech, optics, coatings, and lots of complicated mathematics to get where it's going.

Personally I think the pleasant look could be agreed upon by many, but to state that it would remind one of medium format is too speculative, or hard to base upon. I don't have any experience shooting MF, so maybe that's why. I am not so sure for MF Pentaxians if they could say the same, if they were handed an A7s for their work.

Grip looks better than K-S1, articulating screen good for outdoor work, 24mp seems a given since technology moves forward by the time this goes into production. No AA filter would be great too. A high capacity battery would be better than the K50/K30 battery, they should use the K5/K3 battery!

Now if it could play Pandora or Spotify while doing all the usual photography stuff, that would be way cool....

Remember all that debate that was going on among the FF owners and the APS owners regarding the merits of FF. Every once in a while, one would see a comment that FF just had a better look to it than APS. One couldn't argue with that point because noone could define it Anyway, the comment about the A7S seems to fall into that same category of comment. I do have a friend that has owned both older film MF and has a A7S. I'll ask him what he thinks.
