Review Roundup

Reviews of the Sony A7 from around the web. »

When the Sony Alpha A7 first materialised we were really rather excited. The first compact system camera with a full-frame sensor to surface in the market, it answered a question so many had been waiting for. Big sensor, small size, affordable price.

Up until recently CSCs hadn’t been able to incorporate full-frame sensors, but Sony has finally managed to achieve the marriage with its new Sony Alpha 7. Not only is the Sony Alpha 7 now one of the most compact full frame cameras available, but it’s also one of the most affordable, and on paper at least it presents a very real threat to some major DSLRs.

Well, to all of you who are confused, let me ease your mind…the A7 is just as good of a camera for 99.2% of users as the A7R is.

The Sony Alpha A7 is a mirrorless system camera with a full-frame sensor. Announced in October 2013 alongside the higher-end A7r, they are the World's smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless system cameras; note Leica has long offered its M series with full-frame sensors and interchangeable lenses, but they're larger, heavier and manual focus only. Sony also has its own full-frame RX1 and RX1r compacts, but while they're mirrorless, they don't have interchangeable lenses.
