Of what ?

The two cameras or the two lenses ?

From the "review" ...

really like that, is the A7 weather sealed?

Thanks guys. The camera is apparently weather resistant. I was comfortable with taking it out in the rain after watching the digital rev video where kai tipped water all over the a7r Very Happy

There is a video out there, where someone is washing the camera under a running water-tap.

Can they accept the Jupiter-12 or still an issue?

haven't had much of an opportunity to shoot anything interesting since I got the A7 but I did take it on a walk with me today. the rokinon 85/1.4 used for this shot is new as well. I have to say that I like what this combo can do. Smile

I've pressed the buy button for the A7 and battery grip. Now I will have to offload some surplus glass much to my dismay even if I don't use them very much.
My slr lenses are Minolta,Olympus,Konica,Nikon and Leica, so it's cheap Chinese adapters and hope for the best.

What about your hopes?

I'm starting to like this camera more and more. Love the ability of swapping adapters and changing lens mounts. However, i'm still learning how to nail focus every time, peaking is quite useless in low-light.

Here's Canon FD 55 f/1.2 S.S.C:
