First pre-production images from the Sony Alpha A7R

What Digital Camera has recently taken a series of sample images with a pre-production sample of the Sony Alpha A7R. Here we reveal some of the first results from the 36.4MP Exmor CMOS full-frame sensor

Sony Alpha A7

What Digital Camera was recently given the opportunity to get hands-on with one of Sony's latest releases - the Sony Alpha A7R and the new series of full-frame E-mount lenses

Boasting a 36.4MP full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor, the Sony Alpha A7R was recently unveiled alongside the Sony Alpha 7 - the pair becoming the world's first mirrorless cameras to feature full-frame sensors.

Though visually the pair appear almost identical, the Sony Alpha 7 and Sony Alpha 7R feature key differences. Whereas the Sony Alpha 7 features a 24.3MP full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor and a Hybrid AF system, the Sony Alpha 7R boasts a higher resolution and Contrast-detect AF system, shooting a continuous burst at up to 4fps whereas the Alpha 7 shoots a fraction faster at up to 5fps. 

Though we're expecting the firmware to be updated before the final release of production samples go onsale, the images we took at an exclusive Sony event offer a good representation of the levels of detail we can expect from the Sony Alpha A7R's 36.4MP full-frame sensor.

Our Sony Alpha A7R Review Sample Image Gallery contains a series of images taken during our hands-on experience, and below the high levels of detail become obvious under close inspection.
