A7 at Best Buy
Aug 6, 2014

Our local BB now has the A7 on the showroom floor, but I had two issues/observations:

1- the A7 body feels delicate to me, compared to my NEX7, and that made me do a double-take on the price of it.

2- the batteries were dead... so there was no way to overcome issue #1. I don't understand the battery thing. It's not a real battery, there's a wire coming out of the battery door. How can that be dead? (with the understanding that BB exists in a perpendicular universe, so normal physics might not apply)

or is it that I just bought a D610, and they are priced similarly, but there's not really any basis for comparison beyond the sensor? I gotta tell you... that BB display made me think the A7 is $400 over-priced.
