Whatever your experience level, if you need more than your smartphone to take pictures, today’s a great day to invest in a new camera.
For the pros and serious enthusiasts: Sony A7 with kit lens, new low price of $1298
Sony’s A7 changed the full-frame photography conversation in the same way that its RX100 line changed the game in the point-and-shoot space. The A7’s size advantage alone makes it difficult to recommend anything else for pro photographers, and today it’s available for a new low price of $1298 with kit lens. Check out Gizmodo’s review for the full rundown. [Sony A7, $1298]
For enthusiasts, or pros who need a fast second shooter: Sony a600 with kit lens, $598
The a6000 is a ridiculously fast shooter, can be crammed into a coat pocket with the right lens in a pinch, and I don’t run into any of the issues with it that I have had with electronic viewfinders in the past. If you want to see some hands on impressions and sample shots, be sure to check out Gizmodo’s review. The same bundle plus a 55-210 lens is available at the same link for a low $747.
