In October of 2013, Sony released the A7 and the A7R models of its camera. The Sony A7 is designed for general use and has a sensor with a resolution of 24 megapixels. The A7R, on the other hand, has a sensor with a resolution of 36 megapixels. As a result, the A7R is better suited for certain types of photography that require a high resolution, such as studio photography, product photography, architectural photography, and landscape photography.

In 2014, I got the chance to test both cameras; but, due to a variety of various factors, I did not have the opportunity to write in-depth assessments of either camera. As a result, the purpose of this post is mainly to play catch-up by presenting some photographs from recent journeys in addition to the customary commentary.

Sony A7R

There is no shadow of a doubt that Sony has made a big splash with the release of the A7R. Its sensor has a resolution of 36 megapixels, making it the highest-resolution mirrorless camera ever produced since its introduction. For a considerable amount of time, it served as an additional option to the highly regarded Nikon D800, D800E, and D810 digital single-lens reflex cameras (until Canon broke the record with its 50.6 megapixel Canon 5DS and 5DS R cameras).

In point of fact, many photographers who did not want to convert from another system were glad to discover the A7R because it allowed them to continue using their existing and heritage lenses via adapters. This made the switch less of a hassle for them.
