(SR4) A7 and A7r price in Canadian Dollars.

Share

-

An anonymous source (Thanks!) sent me the A7a nd A7 prices in Canadian Dollars:

1) The A7 with 24MP sensor will be $1700 Canadian MAP

2) The A7r with 36MP sensor will be $2300 Canadian MAP

The source didn’t share the kit price info. I don’t have the price in US dollar but for comparison the RX1 costs $2999 in Canada (henrys) and $2799 in USA (Amazon).

A note: A reader claims that he has seen the A7 image on Sony Australia website (Click here) but the link he shared doens’t work. Did one of our SAR readers find and download it?

(SR5) Current E-mount APS-C lenses will work in two modes on the A7 and A7r!

A source just told me something very interesting. The current APS-C E-mount lenses like for example the Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 will work in two modes on the Full Frame E-mount A7 and A7r cameras:

1) Crop mode: It means you can use the lens like it would be attached on a NEX-5-6-7

2) Full Frame mode: It means you can use the lens with Full…Full Frame activated. I have been told some lenses will have a cool heavy vignetting effect and some lenses will also cover almost the full FF area. it could be useful if you want to use a larger than APS-C area (4/3 mode or so).

Sounds funny! :)

And now an interesting note for German readers: The Wallimex 24mm T/1.5 Lens for EF mount that usually sells for close to 7000 Eruo can be bought for 88 Euro(!!!). This is a FF lens so if you buy a 10 Euro EF to NEX adapter you can use it on your A7 or A7r!

Sigma 18-35mm for Sony confusion. Hasselblad Lunar in Stock…and you get a free 8GB SD card :)

One bad and one boring good news:

The bad: DC.watch (google translation here) that Sigma still doesn’t know when they will start to ship the 18-35mm f/1.8 A-mount version. Really upsetting to know you can already preorder the lens (like here at Amazon) but they won’t tell you when it will ship :(

The boring good news: There is on Hasselblad Lunar in Stock at Samys (via eBay). And it comes with a free 8GB SD card! Huhhh!

(SR5) A7 price lower than current Canon and Nikon FF cameras!

The image on top shows you the two cheapest Full Frame Cameras on market, the Canon 6D (Around $1,900 now at Amazon) and the Nikon D600 (also around $1,900). According to sources the new cheapest FF camera on market will be the soon to be announced “Sony A7“. Body only will be priced around 1600-1700 Euro/Dollars and there will be a kit option with the 28-70mm lens for less than 2000 Euro/Dollars. I will get the 100% final price soon.

UPDATE: While the A7 with 24MP is priced well below the $2000 mark the A7r with 36MP will be priced above $2,000!
