Sony Alpha A7 review
Test score %
Is the Sony Alpha A7 a compact system camera with a full-frame sensor, or a high-end DSLR that looks like a CSC? It's shaped more like a CSC than rival full-frame cameras from Canon or Nikon, and it doesn't have the optical viewfinder or the mirror you'd find in a DSLR. Yet the Alpha A7 is still a serious photographic tool, and what does it matter what you call it if the image quality holds up?
