| Re: Sony A7 & A7R Deal: Save up to $813 with bundle. |
Looks more like these aren\'t selling well and they\'re trying to ramp up interest.
I just hope the reason for it, has not to do with the quality of the product!
I find it quite a good price for a full frame camera and if one takes the bundle, one can
save up to $700 - $800 !!!
However, I am concerned/skeptical of some issues in general about the Sony 7a cameras
(Am I right to be concerned/skeptical about it ??):
*Are the controls for the camera already annoying to some people or the fiddling is manageable. (It is not a dSLR) ??
*Is the viewfinder relatively easy to work with autofocus/manual lenses. (It is not a dSLR) ??
Is video as good as in a dSLR ??
*Is the price ok? It normally costs, without a promotion, what a D610/D800 costs, (One can already find a D800 for around $2,400)
*Are their Zeiss ZA lenses for real? I mean the quality! ZF.2 and ZE manual lenses are more expensive than the Zeiss ZA for Sony. And the ZA are even autofocus lenses!
*Are these cameras rugged enough? They may lack the ruggedness of some dSLRs, but are they rugged enough to take them travelling?? Would they withstand the work of a travel photographer, for example. And that may mean dust, moist, and the occasional drop??
*Are they durable? I have a Nikon D50. It has already lasted with me some eight years. I know that a Nikon D610/D800 would last some good six years. Are the Sony cameras meant to last more than four-five years??
*Last, but not least. Would you be ready to have it as your primary camera ??
Thank you, kind regards,
