This has been my favourite camera now for many years! I have and have had technically “better” cameras, but for whatever reason, I still use this one more than any other. It is the Sony a7R original. It’s a 36 megapixel camera with 14.1 stops of dynamic range and for me that is just perfect. Of course more DR is always better, but 14 is still pretty outstanding in my books. 36 megapixels is a nice size, it’s big, but not over the top. I have a a7R mark ii, but I honestly dont even use it that often. I also had a mark iii that I didn’t use much either. For me this original bad boy is what I love.
I should be noted that I use a lot of manual focus lenses with this camera. I have a lot of auto focus lens too, but to be honest the AF on this camera is not great. If I wasn’t such a big manual focus guy, this camera probably wouldn’t be my go to tool. If I know I need to rely on my auto focus I’ll usually reach for the mark ii.
