Weekend Humor isn’t meant to be taken seriously. So don’t, ya rube.

The a7 and a7R have been making the press rounds before they’re made available to the public.  Here at Phoblographer HQ, we’ve had to hire a full-time janitorial staff to mop up all the drool that’s flooded our office space. The quality of the cameras have caught nearly everyone off-guard, and even Sony seems to be reeling from its own success. The lens division at Sony has nearly thrown up a white flag because the cameras are too good, and Sony has issued an official apology.

In a recent interview, Sony engineers confirmed that they working on faster lenses to keep up with the a7/R’s performance. These are the first two full-frame E-mount cameras, so APS-C lenses, please do not apply. At a meeting last week, lens engineers scratched their heads as they stared at an a7R at the center of the table.

“What the…” began one.

“How do we…” began another.

“I need a smoke,” said a third.

The common thread was that the cameras are simply too good. The engineers eventually left the room and went across the hall to where the camera developers were waiting for them.

“What were you guys thinking?!” one of the lens engineers exclaimed. “Please don’t misunderstood. They really are wonderful, but we need more time.”

The camera developers looked up at the sweat-drenched lens folks and smiled warmly.

“We really don’t know how we did it,” said one of the camera guys. “But hey, we’ll take a vacation. Take the month. We promise we’ll hold off on improving them until y’all are satisfied.”

The lens engineers heaved a sigh of relief, and thanked them profusely. They rushed back to their side of the hall, and started sketching lens ideas.
