Announced globally last month, these will be the flagship mirrorless cameras in the Sony mirrorless family with prices starting at Rs 94,990 for the Alpha 7 and Rs 1,24,990 for the Alpha 7R.
The Sony Alpha 7 comes with a 24.3MP Exmor CMOS sensor
The Alpha 7 sports a 24.3MP full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor whereas the Alpha 7R has 36.4MP Exmor CMOS sensor. The Alpha 7 comes with one 28-70mm (SEL2870) full frame lens in the kit. The other difference between the two cameras is the absence of an anti-aliasing filter on the Alpha 7R, which has become a trend with cameras these days. Both the cameras come with the BIONZ X image processor which Sony claims is around three times faster than the older BIONZ image processor.
