Excellent price for a new full frame Sony Camera

DPreview review here
dpreview.com/rev…-a7

The Alpha 7 has broken new ground in the full-frame market, in terms of both size and price. While it's not perfect, the a7's compact size, broad feature set and very good raw image quality arguably make up for issues like relatively poor battery life and slightly overprocessed JPEGs.

May I suggest if you are buying this camera you try Wex Photograpic. It is the
same price but they give you an extra years warranty from Sony and you can get cash back @ 2.02%. Total saving about £16 for the cash back and £30 for the warranty.

good price but I thought the autofocus isn't that quick on this model?

It's a old model with lots of usability issues including AF. On the plus side, it's a known brand.

It's a full frame camera, not a medium format camera.

Great camera, I think this is the mark 1?

Average price on amazon over the last year.

That's not what I said. By using a focal reducer with this full frame camera it gives off the look and feel of a medium format which before full frame mirrorless was impossible due to flange distances being too large.

Check out the video it's really interesting.

I watched the video and the guy says he's seen some shops selling it new for '600 bucks'. What currency is he talking about, is this a price before sales tax?

Plus Sony did a price hike mid last year

Seems the going rate nowadays.

US, Australian, Canadian? There's bound to be some other countries that use dollars that I can't think of right now.

I think bucks refers to American Dollars

​Just checked the link, it's just £1 cheaper. fair enough.
Although the Wex offer with 2 years warranty is a good deal as well.

Don't hesitate.

It's a brilliant camera.

I have found no issues with it in over two years of use.

I use my old canon lenses with an adapter.

Also my Canon flash ...albeit in manual mode

​That allows you to mount medium format lenses. You're still only capturing a full frame size image. A reducer doesn't give you a MF camera.

You're also adding more glass so likely adding distortion, reducing light, etc.

The sensor is still full frame, sure. But the crop factor is reduced to 0.7x and by focusing light into the sensor with a reducer you actually gain a stop of light.

It's not for everyone and theres going to be a little distortion, but many people swear by speedboosters/ focal reducers so I wouldn't write them off completely.

got my eyes on a A7R mk II -- only problem is at £2499, it's £1700 more

(think Sony recently dropped the price by £500 - or rather they, dropped it back to pre-Brexit price level)
