Sony A7 review: Mirrorless marvel?

Sensor Review
Introduction | Sony A7 sensor performance: Excellent Score | Sony A7 versus competition | Conclusion

With only a very small hit on sensor performance, the A7 compares very well against the Nikon D610 and has a very competitive performance against firm’s A99 and RX1 models. It also compares favorably with the Leica M. That said, the A7 is unlikely to match the output from that model’s sensor with its offset micro-lenses and built-in profile corrections, at least with wide-angle lenses. When used with the native lenses the A7 promises excellent image quality, and at the price it’s a very tempting proposition.
