All that said, for the money this is a very capable camera which punches well above its price point. I usually shoot with a Canon 80D, and frankly this has better clarity, and a wider dynamic range. Plus being full frame, it is great for landscapes. Despite the poor reviews for low light, I think it is no worse than the 80D. Yes the view finder is rediculously grainy in the dark, but on my 80D I see nothing in the viewfinder at night at all so I will take that. Handling wise, it is weird as the shutter release is super sensative and not where I would reach for it, but I soon got used to it. The small size with a prime 35mm lens means I have taken this places I would not take my 80D, which means more shots. With the addition of a serious lens, and a battery grip you could easily be back to DSLR sizes. I think this makes it a more versatile option, The main annoying thing is the focus beep does not seem to have an off switch, something you can do on later models, and if wildlife is your game forget it as the shutter is super loud.
For landscape, portrait, architecture, general reportage though, this is a super camera for the price. Definately not as good as the 7iii, but certainly not £1000 worse. And at nearly half the price of the 80D, it is a brilliant entry level option to serious photography. I can see me using the Sony more than my 80D, which is quite a suprise.
I have not tried it at night yet, other than at monuments, so can’t comment on the Sony ‘star eater’ problem. I have read ln the 7 it is only a problem on exposures longer than 30 secs, so it will probably serve my purposes. The 7iii has a greater issue I hear. If astro is interesting to you, do your research before buying.
Edit: I bought this camera when it was advertised with a £150 cash back deal. Sony rejected my application and have not acknowledged or replied to my appeal. The tracking website just reports the deal is now over and I have no other recorse to get this money back as all the time this takes, means I am no longer eligable for an Amazon refund. Beware cash back deals!
EDIT: I have had this camera a while now and haven’t touched my 80D since I left the above review. I sold the kit lens, and via social media managed to get my cash back from Sony. So the body only stands my at £400. Despite the small issues batteries and beeps, when this camera is on special with cashback, it is excellent value. Track the price on camelcamelcamel. I added an L bracket which extended the grip, made a wrist strap and now this camera goes everywhere with me. I love it so much I considered selling the 80D and upgrading to the a7Iii. Certainly if you can afford the better camera off the bat don’t mess about, get it. However I decide the a7 is a solid enought performer for me for now and my money is better spent on lenses as they have more impact on final image quality. If you have full frame lens that will work on the a7 with a converter and want to dip a toe into the mirrorless world without spending the world, this is an excellent camera to try.
I use mine mostly with the excellent FE 28mm F2 lens, a sharp, fast and compact prime that really compliments the A7's small size making a great discreet carry all day outfit. I also use the very compact Samyang AF 35mm F2.8 lens which is equally sharp and a bargain price. One of the great advantages of full frame mirror-less is the ability to adapt older 35mm lenses at their native focal length, I've a bunch of manual Nikkor lenses from pre digital days that work perfectly using a Metabones adapter (much cheaper adapters are available). Focusing these old lenses is easy with peaking and 2x magnification assigned to a button.
I have an Sony A6000 too and have to say I prefer my A7 in nearly all areas. The viewfinder is far superior, the buttons and dials are more abundant and fall to the fingers better.....and really there is not a lot of difference in size and weight apart from the raised viewfinder. The A7 produces much cleaner images at all ISO's than the A6000 and the auto white balance does a far better job. Plus there is no getting away from the lovely depth of field effects only a full frame provides. Also like the ease of access to the SD card slot on the side, no fiddling in the underside battery compartment to remove it (particularly useful on a tripod). Just to note the FE 28mm F2 works very well on the A6000 which is a big bonus of Sony maintaining it mount from APSC to full frame.
Where the A6000 scores over the A7 is in speed of AF and frame rate, the A7 is not a high speed action camera. That said the AF is a lot better than I was led to believe from reviews, I don't miss shots, it works just fine for me but then I don't shoot sports. The A6000 also has a much quieter shutter.
The two things that I like least about the A7 are the poor battery life and the noisy shutter. The good thing is compatible batteries are super cheap (RAVPower work well for me, with the 2 battery kit and dual charger).
The A7 still has no peers at it's uber low price point when it's on offer. The price, the compactness, the light weight, the glorious full frame......what's not to love?
We purchased the Alpha 7 Kit with the promise of £150 cashback from Sony. Filling in their application form for this offer was fussy: we had to submit all manner of details and supply not only the serial number but a photograph of it on the bottom of the camera. Once all this had been submitted, a cash back was promised within 28 days—but in practice it took more than six weeks and a great deal of prompting was required. The link Sony supplied to enable us to check on the progress of the application never worked. Emails to the support team went unanswered or resulted in standard replies that said nothing. Finally, Amazon’s customer service department was contacted for help, they phoned Sony and we had a three-way conversation. This is the Sony support phone number, which is not readily available on their website: 020 7365 2810. The phone call from Amazon finally seemed to jog Sony into life and responsibility and the money was paid after a further week’s delay.
One difficulty with Sony devices is that they never seem to communicate smoothly with Macs. WiFi recognition does not work, but that is not much of a problem really, since wifi downloading connects to Sony’s irritating and and childish-sounding Play Memories programme—which we gather many users prefer not to use.
The camera’s technology is fine and fun to use, but Sony UK definitely needs to improve its customer services before their poor reputation gets around.
