As rumoured, Sony has unveiled its latest full-frame creations – the Sony A7 and Sony A7r E-Mount mirrorless cameras. Is Sony unifying the Alpha and NEX brands?

The A7 features a full-frame 24MP CMOS, while the A7R has a 36MP CMOS sensor with no optical low-pass filter. The A7 uses a Hybrid AF system similar to the one found on the SLT-A99, while the A7R has traditional contrast detection.

Both cameras use Sony’s new Bionz X processor and also have XGA (1024 x 768 pixel) EVF, tilting LCDs, Wi-Fi, and weatherproof bodies.
