This camera has been a disappointment. i pre ordered it and waited. got it and waited some more until a lens was available. Now i've had it for six months and only 5 lenses have been released for this camera and no apps except for a download app and a remote control app. everything i loved about the Nex 6 isn't available for this camera. my Nex lenses will work, but at a lower resolution than on my nex 6. if there is a point to this camera it is yet to be fulfilled. i have the 35mm 2.8 lens. if you want to shoot with's great.

I retract that a bit, are NONE to compare against as the Sony Alpha 7R is the world's first Full-Frame EVIL... what I meant to write is that there is only one other Full-Frame MILC camera to compare the A7r against (the Leica M9) and thus it is almost in it's own category. Well... I'm still calling BS. Now that the site has the A7 listed as the top mirrorless camera... What gives?

Yeah, from what I can make out, this site is full of B.S. This camera actually scores above 100 and only seems to score low on popularity (presumably because of price and availability). There is no given explanation as to why the top scoring camera would be ranked so low.

Okay, so the camera receives a score of 100 but it is the 37th ranked camera? How is that possible? Is it just that there is only one camera to compare it against as a FF EVF MILC?
