The Sony Alpha α7 is the world's smallest & lightest interchangeable lens full-frame camera (correct as of 16th October 2013). Features include full Frame 24.3 megapixel resolution with 14-bit RAW recording, fast Hybrid AF with phase-detection, Wi-Fi & NFC connectivity, plus the Sony α7 is compatible with Sony E-mount and full frame lenses.

Capturing far more light, it’s the key to flawless, pro-quality pictures. You’ll really see the difference with superb detail, colour and contrast, plus dramatically reduced image noise.
