'Maybe now the sensor in the a99 (and the camera itself) will get some proper recognition as one of the best sensorís to date. The images that come from the a99 are IMPRESSIVE ! Even compared to my RX1R theres hardly and difference.'
Comment from SAR, which which I agree. Put it here to confirm that a few of us have been using the 'a7 sensor' for over a year with great satisfaction. There are no poor options between these two cameras.
Actually just bought an A99, liked it so much I switched from Canon and Nikon.. Now sitting in a drycab are 3 A99 bodies and all the Zeiss ZA lenses Sony/Zeiss makes. Shot a bridal fashion shoot with it thus far, and couldn't have been happier. Doing a wedding with the system shortly.
So NOW knowing that the A7 uses the A99 sensor, and the A7r uses the D800 sensor, I'm really more incline to buy an A7... Honestly I had a D800 for a week a while back, and just couldn't handle the look the sensor gave me.. Way more "digital" then my D700 and D4 (especially the D700 with it's amazingly organic sensor).. D800 made it very hard for me to manipulate images to my liking in LR.
All subjective of course, but anything else different about the two cameras, that I should take into consideration, before I go out and buy one??
