DPR gives the Sony A7r 82% Gold Award

When it comes down to it, the Sony a7R's image quality, created by a combination of its high-resolution sensor and premium quality optics, make it an impressive image-maker. That fact trumps most quibbles we have about operation, JPEG processing, and even pre-processing in Raws. Its autofocus system nails focus most of the time and is fast enough for all but action photography.

It's the satisfaction we get from knowing the camera is capable of capturing excellent images that improves our assesment of the Sony a7R. So while it's not a camera we would recommend to everyone, we think for its core audience of dedicated, Raw-shooting perfectionists, the Sony a7R deserves a Gold Award.

Did DPR mention when they plan to get around to reviewing the K3? Until then negative brownie points.

Strangest line of thought from DPR ever.....

Compared to the A7 review, it seems that on DPR resolution forgives all sins... (as does who pays the bills)
