There's simply nothing like it: a full frame DSLR competitor in a body that's barely bigger and heavier than Sony's NEX (soon to be Alpha a5000 and a6000) ILCs. If you need big image quality but don't want to haul big gear around, the a7 and a7R are...

By no means is the Sony Alpha A7 a perfect camera, but we can forgive a few foibles. It costs less than most full-frame cameras or even some 4/3rds setups like the Olympus OMD-1, yet in the right hands it can take photos of remarkable quality. Take the...

I enjoyed shooting with the Alpha 7 thanks to the comfortable and well-proportioned handgrip, dual dials, logically positioned customisable controls and intuitive menu system. That said, Id see like to see an improvement in some areas. Despite the...

The Alpha 7 has broken new ground in the full-frame market, in terms of both size and price. Its compact size, broad feature set and very good Raw image quality make it a compelling option for those wanting a large sensor. Unfortunately, the JPEGs have...

There's no doubt that Sony has raised the bar for all other camera manufacturers with the release of the a7/a7R. These cameras go far beyond the basic excitement of being full-frame mirrorless cameras. A broad feature set with extensive custom options...

And now for the million dollar question: is Sony's A7 a better buy than the A7R? Well, that's not so straight forward to answer. The Alpha 7 is faster to start up and has a slightly speedier autofocus. Plus, it's less demanding when it comes to lens...

The Sony Alpha 7 is a fast-shooting, full-frame mirrorless camera that is capable of capturing some impressive images, but we prefer its sibling, the 7R,...

The A7s are the most advanced and expensive mirrorless cameras Sony has ever produced. They may look similar to the company's line of NEX cameras, but the A7s have one significant difference: a *much* larger image sensor. Bigger sensors simply produce...

The Sony A7 is a fantastic camera, there's no doubt about that. For the price and size, you can't really beat it. But it does feel a little unfinished at the moment. Together with its A7R sibling, the A7 feels like a camera for early adopters – it's a...

If you can afford – or find – either of these cameras, buy one. Year 2013 isn't over yet but the Sony Alpha A7 and A7R are prime candidates for DT's Cameras of The Year award. In fact, barring the release of a spectacular model from the majors in...

The Sony A7 is the world's first 35mm full-frame compact system camera (along with the A7R that was launched at the same time). The Sony A7 has a 24.3 megapixel full-frame sensor with an optical low-pass filter, a Sony E bayonet mount, a new range of...

What is the Sony A7? Despite recent developments with Micro Four Thirds and APS-C sensor technology, a number of irrefutable factors mean that the very best in image quality is still delivered from full-frame sensors. The larger sensor size delivers...

The Sony Alpha 7 is one of, if not, the cheapest full-frame digital cameras currently available, undercutting both the Canon EOS 6D and Nikon D610 , whilst also being considerably smaller and lighter. The new camera certainly offers an exciting new...

The Sony Alpha A7 is a mini marvel with a big point of interest: that full-frame sensor. At £1,299 for the body only, this is as affordable as large-sensor snapping can get, and it could open up a whole new set of interest from more casual...

The A7 is not without its faults - even with the on-chip phase-detect AF, focusing performance for moving subjects is restrictive, burst shooting is also slow, there's the odd handling quirk, while aesthetically its not going to win any prizes, but it...
