Beautiful Images

Robert Meiners, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I'm not a pro photographer, it's been my hobby for yrs. I'm coming from a canon 5d mark II, 24-70 2.8 and 70-200 2.8. B&H gave me good price for my gear and I purchased this camera along with the FE 55 1.8 . I haven't tested night photos yet. Auto focus is tad slower than 5d but not much. Had hard time getting used to view finder. I love the way this camera feels in my hands. It seems very well built and the images are spectacular.

One of the Best Cameras I have Ever Used

Michael Barsoum, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: I have been using this camera for over a month now and I am very pleased with it. Sony announced this a few months back with many improvements over the original A7 including the device's novel five-axis, in-body stabilization, and they also improved upon its SteadyShot stabilizer which can stabilize the image with any lens. Build Quality Being made of a magnesium alloy makes the camera enjoyable to hold and handle.

Great camera. Pictures so far have been outstanding

JOHN DULAK, Amazon

  • Summary: Great camera. Pictures so far have been outstanding. I am using manual focus a lot more than I did with my 60D. Started long ago with a Canon FTB. All manual of course so back to my roots. Using my Canon lens with the latest Commlite EF to E adapter. 1 - 2 seconds for focus so be aware. My only disappointment is the lack of native lenses and their relative 20 - 30% cost above other brands equivalent quality.

The best A7 series camera for me so far

Absolutic, B&H Photo
2 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I've used many cameras and I've owned A7 (original) and A7r. As a matter of fact I've shot over 10,000 shots with A7r. I also owned cameras like Canon 5DM3 and 6D, and Nikon D700, D600, and D800, and shot 10,000s of shots with them. So I have a good reference point. I also own Fuji XT1 and owned Olympus EM1, so I know what the mirrorless competition provides. And I do own Sony A6000 so I know what fast mirrorless AF is like.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

Great Camera!

  • Excerpt: 5 Axis in body stabilization "Rocks". I have a number of lenses with no OSS. I was considering selling my Tamron 70-200 2.8. I used it on my A7 and would get motion blur on quite a few frames shooting in low light conditions. I can hand hold now with the same lens on the A7MK2 at 200mm and get sharp images at 1/60th! The changes to the ergonomics of the camera are also a plus.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact

Coming from Nikon D610 - a7ii --- WOW

Sathya, B&H Photo
30 December 2014
  • Excerpt: First, the 4 star is because of the way sony has skimped on accessories: 1. default external power adapter.2. screen protector like the nikon.3. More lenses, before more new cameras.4. Menu is still little confusing.Coming to the actual product: 1. Beautiful, compact build. Yes, it takes some time to get used to the EVF from the OVF. I will reserve my judgement for later. But this is what makes the camera so compact.2.
  • Pros: Autofocus, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Short Battery Life

Excellent Compact Full-Frame Camera (th

KB, B&H Photo
29 December 2014
  • Excerpt: Being a photographer and videographer by profession, I was and continue to be smitten with what Sony has done to shake up the industry of full-frame mirrorless cameras. Only a few years ago, the only options if looking to utilize the potential of a full frame camera was to get a large (and expensive) DSLR camera. Then along came Sony with their A7 line, which I believe to be a game changer in the industry.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, In-body Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Lens Options, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Memory Card Door, Short Battery Life

Awesome Full Frame Camera

THMfotography, B&H Photo
20 December 2014
  • Excerpt: I own a Nikon D810, D610, D300s, D200, D90, D80 and an N4004. Each camera has a particular function depending on the job. If I have the choice of carrying less equipment and lighter equipment to get the job done, I always take my Sony A7 & A6000. I will choose to carry them 80% of the time job dependent. My Sony's take great pictures.
  • Pros: Can Use Nikon Flashes, Can Use Nikon Lenses, Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

No need for a DSLR

  • Excerpt: I can't believe that Sony has such a complete full frame in such a small package. I returned this though because the A7 II just came out wih image stabilization in body. Can't wait!
