Recommended lenses for the Sony A7 / A7R / A7S – A Reference Guide by Andrew Reid

The Sony A7 line of full frame mirrorless cameras open up a whole world of possibilities when it comes to full frame lenses.

This e-book takes a journey through my entire collection of lenses for use on these cameras. (After buying, the e-book can be downloaded immediately).

The lens determines the look of your images more than anything else. There are some UNIQUE looks in this guide and some really great discoveries.

A range of lenses are explored from $50 to $3000.

There’s also a chapter on how to find the best looking SMALL lenses for the equally compact A7 bodies.

The book is for all Sony A7 models including the upcoming 4K video shooting A7S.

They all have the same lens mount and sensor size.

It is designed for filmmakers, stills photographers and videographers alike.

The guide is a concise reference for a large range of lenses. At the point of purchase you can quickly find out what EOSHD thinks of the lens. Perhaps you’re about to bid on eBay or you’ve found an old lens at a used camera store and want to know if it is any good? The book contains 108 pages of information to help you.

The guide also has a chapter on lens adapters. Which ones work on the A7, A7R and A7S and which should you buy?

There’s also some useful cautions in the book – problems to watch out for with particular lenses.

Each lens is given an expert summary and details on character rather than just outright technical performance. Each lens is given an at-a-glance EOSHD rating with 5 scores –

You might make some interesting discoveries in the book. I certainly did. Certain lenses have unique properties and look amazing on full frame Sony sensors.

The e-book is based on over 5 years worth of buying and using lenses for full frame cameras. With the mirrorless mount on the A7 I can use everything I own, aside from my Micro Four Thirds lenses.

Of course the book is written fresh from my own hands-on shooting experience (both stills and video) with all the lenses on my Sony A7R.

Lenses of all price ranges are considered. You don’t need to spend a lot to get stunning results.
