Scroll down for the best Sony A7 deals
The A7 was Sony's first shot at the full-frame mirrorless camera (opens in new tab) market, although the fact that Sony has kept it available all these years shows just how relevant it remains. Although there are Mark II, Mark III and Mark IV versions of this camera, the original A7 is a real bargain – and one of our favorite camera deals (opens in new tab).
Based around a 24MP sensor that's capable of capturing Full HD videos to 60p, the camera would make an excellent first-time full-frame buy for those on a budget, and would even be a great candidate as a second body to another camera.
Also known as the ILCE-7 or Alpha 7, the Sony A7 (opens in new tab) accepts the same E-mount Sony lenses as other option in the series, and has a tilting LCD and a high-resolution electronic viewfinder to help you compose images and HD videos with precision in all manner of lightning conditions.
Fast Hybrid AF and Eye AF are also on board, while the magnesium alloy body is robust and fashioned with a substantial grip that supports longer and/or heavier lenses. Furthermore, despite not being the newest Alpha model around, it's primed with both Wi-Fi and NFC.
We have recently noticed that the Sony A7 II (opens in new tab) can sometimes be found for around the same price as the A7 - so do check the prices of this upgraded version too (see current prices below), as this adds the useful advantage of in-body image stabilzation.
