Sony A7 is at first glance a sovereign budget choice for those who want a small and handy camera with full-frame sensor. However, one should not let themselves be fooled by the low price that the discounts are not rarely goes below 10 000 - the price goes up quickly to almost double if you want a lens for Sony FE with autofocus. It is therefore important to plan their purchases properly if you do not, like me, prefer manual lenses in the older vintage (30+ years old or older). If you buy a Sony A7 so are a few things that immediately strikes one at the first pictures you take. The first is that the picture quality is phenomenally good at low ISO values. At ISO 50-200 is the richness of detail (with the right lens, of course) excellent. Anyone have some insight into how different cameras perform teaches also notice that the image noise is certainly more tangible than many other brands, but also the detail is better maintained - perfect if you like to edit the images later. The second learning note is that the camera is very easy to use. All buttons, levers, spinning stuff and meckamojer could be adjusted right where one might wish that they sit. A personal feeling of course when other guaranteed feel differently, but for me it's all right and it speeds up when using the camera. Overall, this is a really nice camera that can clearly be recommended - especially if you like manual lenses. Personally, I use excel Pentax SMC-M 50 / 1.7 with an adapter. The cost of the lens with the adapter was about 400 crowns but performs like ten times more expensive Zeiss Planar T * ZM 50/2. Here are some brief thoughts on the positive and negative points: Positive + Affordable + Excellent image quality + Really good menu / button system + Easy to use + Ideal for manual lenses with adapter Negative - Even if you turn off the noise reduction as applied to a certain amount anyway - The flash shoe is proprietary, so you can not use anything in blixtväg - The lens mount of the camera is made of plastic (can be replaced for a few hundred pieces) - Plasticky build quality that could have been better - Relatively slow autofocus with AF lenses from Sony It is worth mentioning . If you want a lens with autofocus costs expensive - really expensive . Leica M lenses are no big shots on the camera. Avoid! . It comes with no separate battery charger, charging Thus the camera . You can use Sony A lenses with autofocus if you buy an adapter for this
