  • Excerpt: First time I ever write a review. I shoot mostly landscape and seascape and after a trip to New Zealand I returned home with longstanding low back pain due to heavyweight equipment I carried with me: Nikon D800, Nikon 16-35mm f/4; Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8; Nikon 105mm f/2.8; and Nikon 24-120mm f/4 + filters, batteries and an aluminum Manfrotto tripod.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Small / Compact

"Less really is more!"

  • Excerpt: When Sony introduced the fixed-lens RX1, I thought, "If only they had made it with interchangeable lenses and a viewfinder." The a7 series is that camera. I spent a lot of time testing both the a7 and a7r, eventually choosing the a7 for my personal needs. Although the a7r packs a massive amount of resolution, I felt the combined focus systems of the a7 fit my needs for photographing people and the 24 megapixel sensor delivers excellent resolution.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Limited Zoom

Very enjoyable camera

  • Excerpt: This camera is light, yet feels good in hand. very convenient menu access when you customize and get used to it. Love the DRO feature, perfect for gloomy days. wifi and NFC works perfectly. Two batteries are generally enough but I've got three. Perfect with my old FD and FL lenses. EVF looks great although barely use it in practice. Only drawback is the high ISO performance. But still it's good for the price.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, High Dynamic Range, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Noise at high ISO, Short Battery Life

Breathtaking photos in a compact package

  • Excerpt: Up to this point, all of my cameras have been MFT, but I have an extensive collection of legacy and MF lenses. I still love my MFT cameras for their compact size/weight and utility, and they will continue to be my go-to choice for much of my photographic needs. And I have to say, the quality of MFT is more than satisfactory for what I do, including RAW, video, HDR, etc.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Poor Image Stabilization, Short Battery Life

Great Camera

  • Excerpt: I've never owned a really great camera, until now. I'm a novice, just starting out and I am amazed by the size of the camera (very compact and light) as well the quality of the photos this camera produces. I played around with the a7 and a7r with the 24-70 mm lens by Sony. I had a very hard time deciding between the two cameras (the a7r with the lens was nearly twice the price). I think I made a great decision with the Alpha a7. I would definitely recommend this camera.
  • Pros: Too Many To List

Nice camera.... but still like Olympus.

  • Excerpt: This is a good quality camera. It takes great photos.... but I still think that my Olympus OMD-EM1 has better overall IQ. I purchased this camera as a "work camera" and it does the job.
  • Pros: Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Macro Is Horrible
