Difference Between Sony Alpha A7 and A7R

Sony has revealed the secret to his new full format mirrorless system cameras A7 and A7R. At the launch in Berlin, Horst Gottfried had the opportunity to gather first impressions for ColorFoto.

Sony opens with the real a new barrel 24-megapixel Alpha A7 and the 36-megapixel Alpha A7R, to put it even casually – and hopefully also brings himself previous full-size skeptics like me in thinking, and competition with the relatively compact as affordable housing. The Germans themselves buy experience like Yes, opportunities – could be that you need it. Seen to the Sony plan with the A7 and A7R could be a success and a bit of fresh wind in bring so far of the conservative place deer Canon and Nikon-dominated market.

First incarnated getting to know the Spiegellos alpha of A7 and A7R show an im full size unprecedented compactness. Here just the big benefits 36 mm format 24 x by the removal of the back swing mirror and the large viewfinder Prism. The A7 and A7R, even many conventional APS-C SLRs seem like ballast in the hand, not to mention other full-frame SLRs.

The Sony A7 and A7R same in size about the mirrorless micro four-thirds models Olympus OM-D E-M or Panasonic G/GH. More size, weight and costare what naturally follows necessarily in full format, when it comes to lenses, especially to light intensity. There, the full format then also spiegellos takes its toll. This is tempting price of 1,500 euros for the A7 and 2,100 euros for the A7R to keep in mind.

Are not cheap, but handy the Prime lenses such as the Zeiss Sonnar T * 2.8/35 mm with the A7 night the illuminated historic Berlin building on recordings, and also the Sonnar T * 1.8/55 mm, which was used for some interior shots. Otherwise, photos with the image-stabilizing Sony FE-standard zoom created 3.5 5.6/28-70 mm OSS. Because Alpha A7 and A7R no longer per sensor-shift image stabilization but the Zeiss lenses unfortunately without have to get by in the lens. Much light intensity is nice, but light strength plus image stabilization would be even more beautiful.

ColorFoto author Horst Gottfried had the opportunity to test the Sony A7 and A7R advance in practice.

To compensate, already the first photos show, created a nice game room use higher sensitivitieseach A7 – and A7R-pre-series models with still not final firmware. ISO values are easily accessible even with the A7R and their smaller pixels in normal photography to 6,400, and even ISO 25,600 is useful for more than just documentary photos, as the photo shows the equestrian statue of the Bode-Museum (Gallery A7R). The ISO range can be with the 100% cutouts, recorded with the A7R, in the higher ISO values from ISO 6,400 of course detect a loss of detail, who is still in the reasonable.

The first impression, like him in the picture galleries in spite of their size limited to the representation convey the image samples, is as to color, sharpness and dynamics at least promising. Specifically, the automatic contrast range optimization seems to provide good services.

Sony has learned during the operation. Not only the Many directly controls positive effect, but also the revised structure of the Sony menu make for pleasant handling of the compact housing. Particularly useful for the quick call about adjusting the ISO was the Fn button on the back. The sharp, high resolution electronic viewfinder, no optical Prism Finder lacking in me deserve special praise. Maybe helps the SLR-like case bulge above Yes the on the cameras or now – in addition to the quality – about the pain of separation from the Prism viewfinder across other conservative photographers. And, as the new Alphas offer him, I want to not miss a foldable monitor.

Practical differences in the auto-focus – the A7 comes with hybrid AF, the A7R ‘only’ with contrast AF – not noticed under the conditions prevailing at the Berlin shooting. But as already recently at the Nikon D610 showed again that increased attention with regard to the AF target point is required when dealing with the autofocus in the combination “full frame plus fast lens”.

The Sony A7 / 7R In cross section.

To answer the question “Which buy – A7 or A7R” , a few quick photos in passing, not enough of course how we could make it in Berlin. Here, our laboratory test will bring informed decision support as soon as possible. The Sony A7 with its 24 Megapixels and the hybrid AF is seems the right choice for all-around use everyday or also the quick report generally. The Sony A7R without their low-pass filter is likely something for fans of highest resolution and sharpness and perhaps even an Medium format alternative for dynamic fashion photographers.
