Perhaps the most exciting photographic announcement of the year came only recently – the Sony Alpha A7 and A7R. They are the first compact system cameras to have full-frame sensors. Using such a sensor makes these cameras pretty cheap for their £1,200 starting price. DSLRs with such sensors are normally a good deal more expensive.
They look good, feel good and produce excellent photos. To really get the most out of the camera, though, you’ll need to invest in one of the prime lenses rather than the kit lens. It’s no cheap solution to pro-quality pictures, but it is a game-changing camera that arguably heralds the beginning of the end for the DSLR. Read our Sony A7 review
