Sony A7R…Great Camera…Loud Shutter

Dad...that camera is noisy!

Dad…that camera is noisy!

 

So long story short…a Sony A7R with Sony Sonnar T* FE 35mm f/2.8 ZA lens showed up in December. Immediately noticed it had a very loud shutter, and you could feel it vibrate in your hands. Seemed lame for such an expensive camera. I sent it back and bought a Sony A7 24MP body instead. It has a different shutter, quieter and no chance of vibration.

Camera shake from the shutter would probably only happen with longer focal length lenses at certain shutter speeds…but again…I was worried it may bother me in the future so sent it back.
