    Fantastic looking cameras. Very excited.

    But I’m baffled why there’s no “Kit Lens” options for the A7R. It really alienates those wanting to switch to Sony from other brands. Everybody knows that kit lenses are highly discounted. Not including the option of the kit lens on the A7R means users will have to pay almost $999 for a lens that only costs A7 buyers $299 (the difference between body-only and kitted A7).

    This is just stupid and punishes those wanting to invest in the 36MP A7R by robbing them of the ability to start out with an inexpensive lens.

    Sony just ASSUMES that everybody purchasing the A7R is rich, and can afford these really over-priced lenses. That simply isn’t so. There are a LOT of people itching to get into the 36MP range who can barely afford the camera.

    Please Sony, add an A7R kitted option for the masses!

    Finally guys! I’m really really (REALLY) happy that you entered in the 36 megapixels section :)
    You are the only ones that can battle and defeat the established brands today.
    Looking forward to try this beauties out.
    Ps: I was about to question you about a comment of mine in your what’s in the bag posts, but I finally saw it :)

    I too am among the masses that will probably not buy the A7R simply for lack of an affordable kit lens configuration. Please Sony, if you offer a kit lens option for the A7R, I will jump right in! At any rate, congratulations on a revolutionary design.

      What? “Masses” of potential clients fot the Sony A7 will not buy it ever because a kit lens is not offered …! C’mon that’s not very logical.

    You can’t hang a consumer level lens on the a7R. It will reveal all it’s faults and the D800 has the same problem. You need very good lenses to handle the 36M/P and Sony is in a bit of a dilemma here. Only the 35mm and the 55mm are probably good enough and they are not cheap to make. There is no nice Leica _used_ lens that cheap in that category.
