So there was this fable. The fable has been associated with Aesop and La Fontaine, the Greek Babrius in the 2nd century and the Latin writer Phaedrus. In the fable, a fox sees some delicious-looking grapes hanging from a vine. He tries his utmost to reach them, but he can't. Rather than admit defeat, he walks away saying to himself, "those grapes were probably sour."
That must explain the Sony A7R II.
It can't be very good. Probably no better than my Fuji.
I don't even like grapes.
Now I feel a little better.

Amin Sabet: "I can't say enough good things about this Sony. I took a huge loss on selling my Leica M240 and 1-month-old A7II, but a couple weeks with the A7RII have removed any doubt in my mind that it was the right move to make. Body image stabilization is high up on my priority list, and the A7RII sensor is a really nice upgrade from the A7II sensor. All that said, the Fuji with 23mm ƒ/1.4 is considerably smaller, lighter, and has (IMO) nicer controls than the A7RII and FE 35mm ƒ/1.4. Also, the Sony has lousy battery life, my one real knock to mention."
Duncan: "There are a lot of things that fall into this category for me such as fancy cars, houses and stereos to name just a few."
Mike replies: Right you are, Ferraris aren't worth the money and Porsches are awful. :-)
