Pros: For years the unique camera what can capture clear moments in the night.

Cons: Sometimes slow focus.

Opinion: Unique camera for night and low lights conditions no flash use clear moment photography just to do that you have to understand this kind of photography made the right settings and have the right lens ...because in low lights moment photography not always will be the best the wide aperture lens ...in some situations will be surprised one f/4.0 lens will do the magic and one f/1.4 will fail :)

Pros: Excellent performance in both photos and videos, featherweight, 12MP, ISO high hold

Cons: ergonomics (especially the front wheel, even if you get used to it over time), battery life, a little slow in ignition

Opinion: Bought used last October for 700 euros, including 4 batteries and battery grip Meike. In fact, after so many years you find really good deals for the A7s! I love this little camera. The 12MP for me is more than good since I am an amateur photographer and I do not have to make great prints. In any case, although it is not the A7RIV, I love the resolution of the images it gives! I use it with satisfaction for portraits, landscapes, astros and macros, always shooting in RAW (I can't comment on JPEGs). In the video, there is nothing to say, a real beast, with autofocus ranging from god (with sony 28mm and samyang 18mm). Also, with the right lenses, it doesn't really weigh anything. The only complaints I have are, as other users specified, the battery life (I have to carry at least two when I go out), and the ergonomics of the wheel in front, really jammed in a strange way forcing you to rub your index finger on the camera rather than on the wheel... but I got used to it. For me I vote 8.5/10

Pros: Dimensions, weight, dynamic range, image quality, ISO management, full frame

Cons: Immediate menu, ergonomics, AWB, not from the impression of being very robust, ergonomics, price

Opinion: I have this interesting car for a few months and I feel able to give a fairly true judgment (I am amazed and smiling every time I read reviews of people who have the subject reviewing only for a couple of days or a week. Ridiculous!). The machine and especially its sensor are striking. His "few" mpxs are enough and advance to do virtually everything. Those 12mpx take pictures with a great detail, with a striking dynamic range, with a chance to recover remarkable shadows and with the possibility of making substantial crops as well. High ISO management is proverbial but this one knows! The beautiful A7s ISO management is that up to 12800/25600 more or less makes it like any other full frame of quality. But from those thresholds that the A7s surprise! I do a lot of nighttime street and I'm fine at time priority with the shutter speed locked to 1/125 or 1/80 and the ISO automatic control is free to range from 200 to 102000! RnThe things that I pThere is little of this machine AWB that often reads light in a senseless manner (usually with artificial light and with large apertures of diaphragm), ergonomics that is really uncomplicated, the robustness that does not seem to me great and the price I think High.rnI feel disagree with who defines the JPEGs of this ingenable sensor. Surely the A7s are not from JPEG files like those of the Fuji system but are still good and workable. Just spend a few more pp days and get good results. Its lightweight files move over wi-fi in a moment and work fast. I do not agree with those who complain about a low battery life. If we compare it to other mirrorless we are on average. Indeed, perhaps even better than other brands. With its AF system I can not speak because I use it only with manual targets and for this very reason I can say that the peaking focus of this Sony is certainly better than that of other EVFs of other brands. Manually focus on large apertures in a careful manner and in a short time it is not affDifficult act. Just a little workout. The car is, in my opinion, a bit slow in general. When you turn on, in displaying your photos, in displaying the menu and also in switching off but nothing tragic. You are comfortable with this small defect. Overall it is a machine that I feel advisable if it is used and in good condition. Vote 9rnMax

Pros: Image quality and high ISO- reduced draft - 12 mpx - capture one

Cons: no BSI sensor (for some wide-angle lenses with reduced draft) - not at the top ergonomics and improved menu - always on screen - Lack native ISO below 100

Opinion: Introduction: The use especially with optics with Leica R and M attack with Novoflex adapter (all manual) and use the Lumix GX8 if I want a greater crop (in practice with the Tele and Macro). I will not comment size, image quality, native optical park, AF and video department because the network can find a lot of information or because they do not use those functions. I chose A7 between all this because that offering me a better ISO range, and the right amount of megapixel (as I wrote for crop use the GX8). I set up the machine with a time priority so as to set a minimum time for the objectives, the diaphragm imposed by the lens to suit my needs and I'll leave it all to the machine with automatic ISO (automatic set from 100 to 51,000 , the quality remains quite good), day minimum automatic ISO 100 ISO is a bit 'little, so maybe I would have sacrificed a bit high iso for 50 native ISO (ISO 25 or native + sensor stabilization .. .sarebbe l'ideal). Thanks to the few megapixel able to better manage certain goals with short focal designed for the film, a BSI sensor still improve by this aspect, making it almost perfect. The keys are well customizable, I really appreciate the C1 key position with the ability to zoom in to be able to better focus on the selected area (though before enlarge indeed there are many steps to do and everything is not so immediate), I would like the thread in the shutter button to shoot remotely "the old way" as in Fuji, ergonomics in general has been improved in the new version so no comment. The menu is a bit 'badly organized and poorly studied how to turn pages, too bad the lack intervalometer option, however great the possibility to add apps that expands a lot of possibilities (there is also a paid interval series) . Looking good in the menu, you encounter itlla of the shutter silent voice, the fact that it is completely electronic and does not emit the slightest noise can make stay a little disoriented but once used is very convenient in certain situations; remit the mechanical pull-down when I do portraits so as to "warn" the / the model / or when I shoot. Very annoying is it impossible to turn off the screen because it is annoying when you do the night, and because it consumes battery (which already does not last much). JPEG of the car are not the best (dull colors and at the same time burns bright colors), I as workflow except in Raw (preview in black and white to put in fire easily) and amount in C1 to have very good results (without further processing), I recommend anyone to download, while it is free for sony. Another thing they could improve without too much effort are the batteries, if there were asymmetric less chance to put them on the wrong side in the battery compartment;)All small things but they do, in my opinion, an incomplete product even if good

Pros: Size and weight, sensor quality, image and ISO, shutter including electronic, file workability, autofocus even in the dark.

Cons: Battery life, not being able to set a minimum time for ISO auto.

Opinion: Use for about a year and a half this machine and only in photography. This A7s the first thing that struck me was the quality of the sensor, despite "only" 12mp in my opinion provides good results, not to mention dynamic range and ISO that are out of the ordinary. I find it a perfect machine for those who want to use compact type Leica M lenses, or fixed in the light system, and quality. Nonostrante AF is a speed demon fails however to focus even in very low light situations, plus the electronic viewfinder with the manual focus is easy and fast, you just need a little 'hand. Another gem is the fully electronic shutter, you can shoot without making a sound in certain situations it is very useful, more thanks to the ISO seal and image quality in low-light situations where you need discretion allows you to shoot without flash, so avoid being noticed and annoy the present, and without getting the clasphysical image spiattelata from light stroke. I believe that this medium is very underrated photographic use, perhaps for 12mp that still are more than enough for almost all types of use, and in A2 press have an awesome detail.
