This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Use voucher code BANKHOL10 to get the price.

£200 cashback available from Sony: sony.co.uk/sum…ack

TCB is also available @ ~4%.

So the effective cost is ~£1010 for the camera body + the Sigma adapter.

Two years warranty included.

Best price I have seen since launch I think, especially given that the Sigma adapter alone is being sold for £189 on Amazon right now.

What’s the difference between the different versions of the A7?

R series are high resolution. A series are high sensitivity for low light optimisation and the plain 7 is for general use.

A7 mk1 had no in body stabilisation mk2 did. Mk3 has much faster af and many other improvements too.

If you need to ask it seems you may want to do a fair. It of reading before you purchase one so you get the right tool for you

I’m invested in Fujifilm but also collect vintage lenses. I keep eyeing the A7 so that the classic glass I own can be used at its normal focal length and not at x1.5 crop.

Old lenses do not have the resolving power to match the sensor in this camera. The A7 is better suited for your use case.

Although resolving power is only one property of a lens, and the best of the modern lenses are going to be far more expensive. But I agree, if your main interest is trying old lenses on a FF sensor, the A7 makes much more sense.
Why doesn't get hot? Is the cheapest price ever afaik, and the adapter worth another solid £200 that a lot of people gonna buy anyway...

No lens, no heat. Lens adapters don't count.
Great price for a great camera. Stunning landscape shooter for those on a tighter budget.

Totally agreed. Older lenses are not necessarily optimized for Bayer array sensors in digital cameras. Common issues include softness in corners, and purple fringes. Like the other guys said A7 (non-S, non-R) will probably suit you better as the issues will be made worse by the higher pixel density on A7r and regular A7 are cheaper. I will say avoid the first gen though if you can afford the later ones. As the low light and af performance are a little dated.

I think you meant S series for low light

Imho good camera but can't justify the price considering the A7Riii and Riv are out. Bought the A7ii for £630 and that was a good price
These are fantastic cameras at the price.
AF isn't a patch on the mk3 but I'm pretty tempted at a grand.
Bear in mind a decent zoom will cost the thick end of another grand though.
Is the BANKHOL10 advertised on their site anywhere? Doesn’t seem user specific but there’s no mention of it on Jessops.com

Wasnt the AF in the MK2 'fast enough' anyway? Or is that the S7ii?

Just a little correction which I'm guessing is a typo, the S series is the high iso/video variant.
Another point for choosing from the A7 product line is that, the A7r is more for stills and A7s is very popular for taking videos, regular A7 can be used for both, but not as high-res as the Rs for stills and not as good in low light as the Ss. I think A7r has lower continuous shooting rate as well.

Got this camera. I would buy this if you want to do superb stills. Amazing what you can pull out of that sensor with good lens.

Amazing how photographers ever got good shots of children before AF, eh?
