Disappointing- had such high hopes!

I meant to write this review a while ago...
I bought this on a black Friday sale seen as it was so much of a deal.
I currently/before used a Nikon D3200 DSLR very much an entry level camera that i bought new for around £400. I love this camera and do a lot of work with the images in photoshop; always zooming in getting close and editing in great detail. However i found that when using the A7 the images would look amazing on the screen of the camera (minus low light - another downside) but then i would export them and begin post production on my mac book and zoomed in and realised how bad the quality of the images were when zooming in. I was expecting this to be better considering it is full frame and higher mega pixels than my D3200. I took the same images side by side on both cameras and the difference was heartbreaking. I was expecting my images to be simply amazing. I wondered if there was a defect seen as everyone else seemed to get amazing images, i also got a new fast memory card, still didn't fix it... I updated the firmware and amazon sent me a new one to see if it was a defect in the camera but it didn't change anything. Really let down i was so excited but it didn't meet my expectations... Everyone else seems to say it's amazing so maybe I'm just being picky or maybe doing something wrong- if i've missed something please do tell me... Sony please get in touch.
