a7 vs. a7r (coming from nex aps-c)
Apr 30, 2014

Hello, sorry if this has been covered already. About to pull the trigger on either the a7 or the a7r, and wanted to get some basic conversion facts verified (coming from aps-c sensor)

Im aware of the 1.5 crop factor when it comes to lenses, but how about megapixels, does it go the same way? ie a nex-7 24mp (which i used to own) does this equal to 36mp FF? (x1.5)

Asking since i didnt like my nex7 low light performance, my old nex5n was cleaner, telling me 16mp was sweet spot for aps-c, now, technology has improved since then, and just wanted to make sure before i go with a7 or a7r. Do love the build quality of a7r, do like the resolution, but not if it comes at an expense...
