a7R (Alpha 7R) Interchangeable Lens Camera

On December 1st 2013, Sony is releasing the world’s lightest mirrorless interchangeable lens full-framed sensor cameras. Sony boasts that no other full framed, interchangeable-lens camera is light or portable as the a7K and the a7R. Image source:

The Sony a7R (Alpha 7R) sports a 36.4.3 MP of rich detail, true-to-life 2.4 million-dot OLED viewfinder, Wi-Fi® sharing and even comes with an expandable shoe system. And the best part is, its compact size. With a smaller size you can carry it more places and have less of a burden then you might have when you carry your big DSRL camera.

    • Full Frame 36.4MP resolution with 14-bit RAW recording
    • Fast Intelligent AF optimized for full-frame sensor

Thoughts on the Sony a7R (Alpha 7R) Full-Frame 36.3 MP

Over the last few years, I have been impressed with Sony’s line of mirrorless and DSLR cameras. At first I was a die hard Canon fan from back in the days of film cameras. Then when the DSLRs took off, my thoughts on Canon changed. Then I got my hand on a few Nikon DSLRs. I tried out both the beginner and Professional level cameras and knew my next DSLR purchase would be a Nikon.

But now, I’m not so sure I want to go that route. Recently, I purchased Sony Nex-3n (review coming soon) and  I love the camera. Its fast, it takes great pictures, but the lens that came with it has to be upgraded. The lens is to slow, blurry, and bokeh effect isn’t that great.

Since purchasing the Sony NEX-3n, I have been thinking about purchasing one of the Sony full-framed cameras as my main camera or go with the NEX-7. But after reading about the new a7 and the a7R, I can have the best of both worlds. I can have a full-framed sensor in the compact size of a mirrorless camera. These two cameras are definitely going on the list of high end cameras. I love the big Nikons, Canons, and Sony DSLRs that are out on the market today but, they are just to big for some of the types of photography I like to do. Honestly taking a multi mile hick in 90+ degree weather or exploring some abandoned structure with 10+ pounds of bulky camera gear (usually several camera lens and a tri-pod) doesn’t appeal to me. Carrying half the weight and several lends in small gear bag and a MeFoto Roadtrip Travel Tripod Kit
