The full frame Sony mirrorless A7 (24MP) and the A7R (36MP) were announced just hours ago and I keenly watched the live Sony Australia introduction video to the cameras. Everything I saw made me want one ! and its not just my GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) which was brought to my attention on Google+, haha. But seriously the full frame image resolution on these cameras looks stunning and the improvement on the physical properties of the sensors since the full frame Sony A99 looked great. Something which is going to make these sell like hot cakes is the ability to get lens adapters so that you can use your existing canon & nikon glass, for example, on these camera bodies. Yay I can use my Nikon 14-24mm wide angle juggernaut on them 🙂
If you want to checkout the Sony Australia intro video to both the A7 and A7R cameras that was uploaded to youtube you can watch it here. Below that is the fantastic hands on real life shooting with the camera by the camerastore.com, check out that video underneath!
The Sony A7 & A7R Hands-On Field Test
After watching these I believe I’ve found my full frame camera to go along side my Sony RX 100 II. I will be a sony shooter ! with nikon glass 😉
