Sony α7K Full Compact Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera with SEL2870 lens included
No other full frame, interchangeable-lens camera is this light or this portable. Features 24.3 MP of rich detail, a true-to-life 2.4 million-dot OLED viewfinder, Wi-Fi sharing and an expandable shoe system. It's all the full-frame performance you ever wanted in a compact size that will change your perspective entirely.
World's smallest and lightest* interchangeable lens full-frame camera
Sony's Exmor image sensor takes full advantage of the Full-frame format, but in a camera body less than half the size and weight of a full-frame DSLR.
Full Frame 24.3 MP Resolution with 14-bit RAW Output
A whole new world of high-quality images are realized through the 24.3 MP effective 35 mm full-frame sensor, a normal sensor range of ISO 100 – 25600, and a sophisticated balance of high resolving power, gradation and low noise. The BIONZ X image processor enables up to 5 fps high-speed continuous shooting and 14-bit RAW image data recording.
Fast Intelligent AF
AF for responsive, accurate and greater operability with full frame sensor.
The high-speed image processing engine and improved algorithms combine with optimized image sensor read-out speed to achieve ultra high-speed AF despite the use of a full-frame sensor.
Fully Compatible with Sony's E-mount Lens System and New Full-frame Lenses
To take advantage of the lightweight on-the-go body, the α7-series of full frame compact interchangeable lens digital cameras is fully compatible with Sony's E-mount lens system and expanded line of E-mount compact and lightweight full-frame lenses from Carl Zeiss and Sony's premier G-series.
Simple Connectivity to Smartphones via Wi-Fi or NFC
Connectivity with smartphones for One-touch sharing/One-touch remote has been simplified with Wi-Fi/NFC control. In addition to Wi-Fi support for connecting to smartphones, the α7 also supports NFC (near field communication) providing "one touch connection" convenience when transferring images to Android smartphones and tablets. Users need only touch devices to connect; no complex set-up is required. Moreover, when using Smart Remote Control - a feature that allows shutter release to be controlled by a smartphone - connection to the smartphone can be established by simply touching compatible devices.
PlayMemories Camera Apps allows feature upgrades
Personalize your camera by adding new features of your choice with PlayMemories Camera Apps. Find apps to fit your shooting style from portraits, detailed close-ups, sports, time lapse, motion shot and much more. Use apps that shoot, share and save photos using Wi-Fi that make it easy to control and view your camera from smartphone, and post photos directly to Facebook or backup images to the cloud without connecting to a computer****.
Fast Hybrid AF w/ Phase-detection for DSLR-like Focusing Speed
Enhanced Fast Hybrid auto focus combines speedy phase-detection AF with highly accurate contrast-detection AF, which has been accelerated through a new Spatial Object Detection algorithm, to achieve among the fastest autofocusing performance of any full-frame camera. First, phase-detection AF with 117 densely placed phase-detection AF points2 swiftly and efficiently moves the lens to bring the subject nearly into focus. Then contrast-detection AF with wide AF coverage fine-tunes the focusing in the blink of an eye.
New Eye AF Control
Even when capturing a subject partially turned away from the camera with a shallow depth of field, the face will be sharply focused thanks to extremely accurate eye detection that can prioritize a single pupil. A green frame appears over the prioritized eye when focus has been achieved for easy confirmation. Eye AF can be used when the function is assigned to a customizable button, allowing users to instantly activate it depending on the scene.
High Contrast 2.4M Dot OLED EVF for Eye-level Framing
View every scene in rich detail with the XGA OLED Tru-Finder, which features OLED improvements and the same 3-lens optical system used in the flagship α99. The viewfinder faithfully displays what will appear in your recording, including the effects of your camera settings, so you can accurately monitor the results. You'll enjoy rich tonal gradations and 3 times the contrast of the α99. High-end features like 100% frame coverage and a wide viewing angle are also provided.
3.0" 921k Dot LCD Tilts for High and Low Angle Framing
The tiltable 3.0" (921k dots) Xtra Fine LCD Display makes it easy to photograph over crowds or low to capture pets eye to eye by swinging up approx. 84° and down approx. 45°. Easily scroll through menus and preview life thanks to WhiteMagic technology that dramatically increases visibility in bright daylight. The large display delivers brilliant-quality still images and movies while enabling easy focusing operation.
PC Control w/ Remote Video Capture Control
Remote Camera Control allows you to control your α7 from your PC using a USB cable. Feature control has also been updated to include video capture control.

Pros: Great image quality, the lens ecosystem is wide open (I've been shooting with a lot of old Minolta glass), very small and light body. The electronic viewfinder is a great feature; the ability to use a level, focus peaking, grids, zebra stripes etc while looking through the viewfinder is invaluable, especially if you're shooting manual focus.
This camera is ergonomically great! Being able to reach all of the dials for shutter speed/aperture/whatever you program them for without taking your hand off the grip is hugely appreciated.
Cons: On the expensive side, especially for first-party native lenses or if you want to use pricey auto focusing adapters.
The battery life is also pretty bad, as a result of Sony trying to keep the battery consistent across A-series bodies. I'd say you probably have 300-400 shots on a charge.
While the camera itself is light, the first party lenses are typically about the same weight as the body itself! I wouldn't be surprised if my zoom lenses start developing creep from how far they pull the body down while I'm carrying it.
Lastly, this is a minor nitpick but Sony seems to have included "DLC" for their A-series cameras. What this means is that you have to pay to unlock certain features, such as the ability to keep the shutter open for longer than 30 seconds (I believe it's an extra $4.99 but I could be wrong). I suspect you'd be dissapointed if you bought this camera for astrophotography and wanted to use it right out of the box.
The bottom line? This is a cool piece of technology with a few glaring flaws. However, if you want to pick up a cheap mirrorless full frame, I'd say that it's your best option. I've included some sample photos that have only been minimally processed.
I purchased this camera to replace my Nikon DSLR sports shooter and if I was still primarily shooting sports I probably would not have made the jump to mirror-less due to no direct comparison to lens availability. Really do your research and if you have the money to replace your existing hardware or buy expensive adapters to use them on the mirror-less body then go for it and try not to look back.
Pros: Slim and light weight, better image processing than older cameras, eye-tracking, low light, fast auto-focus with good lenses, weather sealed body
Cons: Battery life is about half as much as a standard DSLR (smaller batteries compared to normal DSLR), Price of lenses, amount of good zoom lenses for under $1000, Sony Apps within the system can cost $ to do what normal DSLR systems can do without apps (timelapse), lack of quality budget lenses
1. Why I chose this camera.
After using cameras from the Nikon APS-C system for ten years I found myself hitting the system's performance barriers with higher frequency as I grew as a photographer. Most often, the issue I faced was the limited dynamic range. After looking at many sample images, reviews, and tests of the Sony a7 series, the Pentax K-1, and Nikon and Canon full-frame cameras, I chose the a7 for its combination of a great sensor, a compact body, and in 2017, a very reasonable price. Having used a Samsung NX300 as a secondary camera for a few years, mirrorless cameras were not entirely alien to me, so the jump from SLR to mirrorless was not something I was scared of.
2. The operation and use of the camera.
a. Image quality: When I got the a7 in my hands, its miniscule size (much smaller than my APS-C Nikon D7000, and only a little bigger than the Samsung NX300) was a revelation. The camera reminded me a lot of the Nikon FM-10 and Olympus OM-2000 film cameras in size. The image quality that I got from the camera was better than I could have imagined - I almost never had files with blown-out highlights, and so much data in the raw files to play with.
b. Handling: After ten years of using the Nikon interface, transitioning to Sony's system of tabs with multiple pages was, and after some months of using the camera, still is rather frustrating. Another frustration I have with the camera is the inability to move the spot-metering area with the focus point.
The layout and interface of the a7 seems to be optimized for the use of matrix metering and automatic focus-point detection, with the photographer using the exposure compensation dial to make adjustments. This is the complete opposite of my style of shooting - I like to use the spot-meter to check the light levels in different parts of my frame and then decide what exposure to set depending the final result I want to achieve. Being unable to move the spot-metering area, this means that I have to point my camera in a variety of different directions to meter different parts of the scene before finalizing the framing. This isn't so bad when I'm hand-holding the camera, but is extremely inconvenient when I have the camera on a tripod. It's not that I specifically distrust Sony's matrix metering - I distrust all matrix metering. It's just that I like to know exactly how my exposure is going to affect the image I am shooting. Since it's impossible to know the exact way in which the matrix-metering algorithm will calculate an exposure, I do not use it unless I am in an extreme hurry. In such cases I shoot in program mode with matrix metering to simply make a documentary record of what is in front of me (like when Joe Biden happened to be getting into a car 20' away from me).
c. Build quality: After getting used to the build quality of Nikons, the Sony does feel a little delicate, specifically the doors for the USB, HDMI, and audio ports. My combination of camera and lens does have the now infamous a7 lens-mount wobble. Initially I found this terribly disconcerting, but having used the camera extensively over some months, I've found that this has no effect on the structural integrity of the camera or lens (accidentally dropping the camera from a height of 8-10" onto a hard floor shattered my UV filter, but did not make the lens-mount wobble any worse). I've also not experienced any light-leaks through the mount.
d. The kit lens: The lens that comes with the camera has atrocious corner sharpness, especially wide open at the 28 mm end of the zoom range. But more inconveniently, the lens consistently produces purple fringing at virtually all apertures and focal lengths - much more so than what I've seen in kit zooms from Nikon and Canon. I have done test shots comparing the fringing with and without a filter, and have found that it is not my filter that is causing the issue. I'm not sure if these issues with corner sharpness and fringing are because the sensor of this camera is less forgiving of lens faults, or if this is just a badly designed lens, but as a combination this camera-lens pair has image-quality issues. Vignetting, however, has not been a problem.
In spite of the issues that I have with this camera the value-for-image-quality that it gets you in 2017 is, in my opinion, worth the annoyances.
