Review: Sony NEX-7

Wired
29 May 2012
  • Excerpt: The 24-megapixel APS-C sensor inside Sony’s NEX-7 produced the best stills and videos of the compact system cameras we tested this summer (2012), with details that held up even when we zoomed all the way in. The minimalist magnesium-alloy camera features an OLED viewfinder, articulated 3-inch LCD screen, and three customizable dials for configuring controls. That’s a good thing, because the cluttered onscreen menu is the one glaring flaw.

Sony Alpha NEX-7

CNET
21 April 2012
  • Summary: With a lot to like and just a little to dislike, the Sony Alpha NEX-7 comes up a winner, albeit an expensive one.
  • Pros: The Sony Alpha NEX-7 delivers excellent raw photo and solid video quality in a package that's beautifully and functionally designed, yet relatively compact. Though expensive for an essentially nonprofessional camera, it doesn't seem overpriced.
  • Cons: As with many competing products, the camera's JPEG algorithms need some optimization, some aspects of operation feel a little laggy, and it's missing some useful features.

  • Excerpt: Sony hopes to shift the tide in the war between micro four-thirds technology and mirrorless DSLRs with their newly announced NEX-7. Its 10.3 ounce, magnesium alloy body contains the same 24.3-megapixel Exmor APS HD sensor that has made Sony’s Alpha line of DSLRs the talk of the camera town.

Sony Alpha NEX-7 Review

Digitaltrends
27 March 2012
  • Conclusion: This conclusion is hardly a surprise. If you’re looking for a camera that’ll last for years and has tons of options to help you grow as a photographer, buy the Sony alpha NEX-7. The NEX-7 is a winner and a clear Editor’s Choice. If you must have it now, you’ll pay a premium as Sony ramps up production. According to company execs, a lot of the demand should be satisfied in April/May. We’d wait and save so we could buy the NEX-7 with the Zeiss f/1.8 24mm prime lens.
  • Pros: Outstanding stills, Excellent noise-handling characteristics, Attractive, compact design, Sharp, bright 3-inch LCD display, Ample lens options
  • Cons: Expensive, GUI has a definite learning curve, No built-in IS; requires lens with OIS

Sony's trying to cram a DSLR into a much smaller body, but can it pull it off?

theverge.com
7 February 2012
  • Summary: The lower-end NEX cameras are excellent, but they’re designed for a user wanting something between the simple point-and-shoot and the enormous and complex DSLR. The NEX-7 isn’t such a compromise: it’s not quite in DSLR territory without more manual control, but it’s probably close enough for most people. It’s also so customizable that it could potentially be as easy to control as your DSLR, if you take the time to tweak it.
  • Pros: Excellent pictures and video, Fast performance, Very easy to use
  • Cons: Still doesn't have DSLR-level manual control, OLED viewfinder is mediocre, Lens ecosystem isn't as good as Nikon or Canon
