Sony A7 - The thing Sony got right






All images - Sony A7 and 35mm f/2.8 FE lens and 85mm f/2.8 a mount lens + LA-EA4 adapter

Yesterday I went out with my Sony A7 and 35mm f/2.8 FE lens and 85mm f/2.8 a-mount lens + LA-EA4 adapter. I have a strange relationship with this camera. I've now put it on ebay to sell it five times. And four times I've removed it again. 

It's not quite a love / hate relationship, but I obviously have a certain ambivalence towards it, to say the least. It's mostly about how it fits in with what else I have. The A7r obviously has that huge sensor and while the A7 doesn't have that extraordinary resolution I do seem to use it as much or almost as much as the A7r. But while I try to decide whether I will keep it or sell I have no hesitation in saying that in terms of the results it produces, it's one of the best cameras I've ever owned. And say what you like about Sony (and I usually do!) with the A7  they have got one thing gloriously right, the sensor.
