Camera Reviews Featured Mirrorless Sony User Reviews

Sony Alpha NEX-7 – Featured User ReviewThe Sony Alpha NEX-7 is Sony’s top-of-the-line interchangeable lens mirrorless camera and this is our first user review for the NEX-7. It was written by community member Greg McCary, one of my favorite photographers on the site and a man who knows his cameras. Greg owns Olympus, Leica and Sony cameras and he’s a very experienced photographer, so his opinions carry a lot of weight. I’ve been anxiously waiting for him to get his NEX-7 so he could write a review and I am pleased to give it some extra attention by making it a Featured User Review.

If you own the NEX-7 or another Sony camera, please write a review so other photographers can benefit from your experience. User reviews are the foundation of and we need your reviews!
