I got the A7r for journalistic work
4 months ago

I purchased the A7r for journalistic work. I'll be shooting a wedding with it in a few days. Lovely camera!

Solid build. Shutter sound is not too loud and somewhat pleasing. Start up time and operation feels speedy to me, at least compared to the Nex 7. I'm getting about 450 shots per battery under heavy usage. Autofocus is a bit slow and unable to lock onto faces in low light with spot focus so I'm experimenting more on the matter. I noticed if I make the focus point medium in size, it grabs focus better. Manual focus works great. Oh yes - picture quality is awesome! Lovely High ISO. I'm glad I got it over the A7. Below are pics from my first night shooting with it. First one is at ISO 12,800 on purpose. I kind of like the grainy look. This camera replaces my Nex 7 and is my only camera I will be using for both short films and photography.
