Excerpt: After over a year of agonizing I finally got my hands on a used A7.... only to find out I need relatively quick autofocus much more than I need razor thin DoF. I took it on a weekend trip to NYC with the following lenses: (1) FD 24/2.8 SSC (2) Voigtlander Nokton 35 1.2 (3) FD 50/1.4 Let's start with...
Excerpt: I would not recommend Sony cameras to ANYONE. I never write reviews of things, but I am so disgusted by Sony that I felt motivated to warn other people. From beginning to end, I have had an egregious experience, both in terms of the camera itself and the customer care.
Excerpt: I use this for real estate & general photography. It's certainly a well-made camera with loads of useful features. The kit lens is a bit heavy and reasonably decent. I have other Sony APS-C lenses which I use on this body but the output is only 10MP.
Summary: There area things i miss from my SLR. The size is nice but it didn't feel great in my hand airtight it is very light. The pictures i get with this camera and my Zeiss 55mm f1.8 are really nice. Raw compression is a big deal to me. I wish Sony would address the issue.
The Sony a7 is great. But compared to the Sony a6000?

Excerpt: The Sony a7 is a great camera. Whether or not it's worth the upgrade from the crop sensor Sony a6000 really depends on the what you plan on photographing. The two cameras are similar in size, and features, but the a7 has the look and feel of a more 'professional' camera.
Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
