Thread: Sony Alpha a7, good buy?

    Sony Alpha a7, good buy?

    Are you look at the A7, S or R? How important is video to you? What about resolution? What do you like the shoot and plan to shoot? One question to ask, do I really need full frame, or can I do fine with aps-c camera. If so, I’d also look at the Sony A6300, which is really fast camera, with very good high iso(for it’s class) and it’s smaller and lighter than the A7. Plus, I think lenses maybe a bit more affordable, though you may have less wide angle options than FF E mount cameras.
    Another option is Fuji X-T20 with the 18-55mm f2.8-4 lens. It’s a great lens, great camera, and colors(subjective) are just really nice.

    I’m looking at the regular a7, the other too are quite the price hike.
    I like to shoot people, buildings, street photography basically. Occasionally I try my hand at long exposure, light painting, timelapses. I also want to try a few things that my RX100 can’t do like lens-tilt, macro and eventually I’m looking at more specific lenses like super wide or telephoto (I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it, but I still want to be on the right path).
    I shoot quite a bit in the evening, low-light so I think I’d prefer full frame. And size isn’t so much of a concern, I can still use my RX100 if I’m limited in that regard.
    Video I’m not really very interested in, I might use it occasionally but I wouldn’t base my decision around it.

    If I go for a Fuji, are their lenses compatible with other brands?

    Fuji lenses only work with Fuji cameras, just like Sony E mount lenses work with Sony E mount cameras.
    Yeah if video isn’t important the A7 should be what you are looking for, unless you really need the more MP of the R or better low light of the S. I think the only downside to the first gen A7 lineup is AF, which for moving subjects may not be the best. I’d again also take a look at the a6300 cause that’s a way faster camera and may find that better suite your needs at a lower price, which allows you to get at least a second lens.
