Amazing Technology in a Small Package

ENormus, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Great little camera. This camera is tiny and takes the place of my Hasselblad and PhaseOne P45+ back. I combined it with lenses from Zeiss to assemble an incredible camera system that rivals systems costing tens of thousands of dollars more. The only negative thing I would say about the camera is that it is very easy to get dust on the sensor, probably because there is no mirror standing in the way to protect it.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Large image size, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
  • Cons: Dust on Sensor, Short Battery Life

Great Travel Camera

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera for Europe to replace my bulky heavy Canon 60D. It was so much more compact, light and the quality is crisp. The only cons that I have discovered is the lack of focusing speed for moving subjects, and the painful shutter click in quiet settings.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

The Sony a7r is a superb camera. One of the best currently available.

  • Summary: I am 61 years old and I have been photographing seriously since I was 15--including part-time professional work. I have owned many cameras, and, thanks to ebay, that includes some of the finest photo gear ever produced: Nikon, Leica, Linhof, Hasselblad, Sinar etc. In that same time I have only owned Sony tvs--and never had a problem with any of them. When I saw Sony get into the photo game I was extremely impressed...but also skeptical.

  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD

Terrific Image Quality

ENormus, B&H Photo
27 June 2014
  • Excerpt: This camera is amazing. I just sold my PhaseOne P45+ back and bought this to replace it. It's only 3 MP less that the P1, but has so many advanced features and conveniences that simply blow away most other cameras and backs. I bought a Metabones Canon to Sony lens adapter that I use for my Zeiss lenses and the results are simply stunning. Menus, contrary to what other folks may say, are not difficult to navigate and I memorized most of them in 15 minutes.

A7r, a tremendous choice

Fastbrit, B&H Photo
27 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Without actually having tried or even seen an A7r, I based my purchase decision on reviews from many sources. As a long time Nikon user (currently D7000) it was a leap of faith to go mirror less and to another manufacturer. No product is perfect and the A7r does have some weaknesses (short battery life, bracketing, etc.) but there are work-arounds.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO, Short Battery Life

  • Summary: I hit flickr explore 4 times in the 1st week I owned this camera.
  • Pros: I've been a Sony NEX user for a bit, they were great backup cameras to my Nikon and Canon professional-grade gear. I've been watching this camera for quite some time and I finally broke down and bought it.
  • Cons: I'd like to see more EF Mount lenses offered (and some are coming)

A lot to love, a little to be disappointed about

K. Lamy, Amazon
13 June 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this camera after having my Canon 5d iii stolen. I mainly shoot portraits and landscape, but have also done wedding photography (not with this camera, more on that below). Pros: - Focus peaking in the EVF is really handy - Image Quality is amazing and tack sharp (depending on what lens you use of course) - Small size and weight is a big pro - Overall its a well built camera Cons: - Autofocus isn't the fastest, so wedding/sports photography would be difficult...
