A7 and A7r bodies. Important construction materials difference.
11 months ago

The cameras were released in Australia with a live presentation showing/comparing the features and also the new RX.

Quite a point was made (with graphics) of the different construction of the A7 and A7r. The whole front panel that supports the mount on the A7 is plastic and it is mag alloy on the A7r. This was explained as necessary as it was felt that the A7r would be using big tele lenses more than the A7 and that the mag alloy was more rigid.

I'd also like to know (given some of the issues with tripod mount on the Nex7) of the construction of the tripod point.
