By on

DxOMark published their test results for the Sony A7s mirrorless camera which is currently body only priced for $2,499 at Amazon.

Sony A7s sensor test results shows the camera scored a point of 87 and becomes the best low light sensor tested at DxOMark database.  The mirrorless camera easily beats the Nikon Df which is the second best camera with a $500 higher price.

From DxOMark conclusion :

Sony’s A7 and A7R models have not unexpectedly generated a lot of interest with enthusiasts, and the new addition to the range looks equally intriguing, if perhaps for different reasons.

While it’s true the short register and low pixel density makes this model potentially more suitable with rangefinder type (non-retrofocus) wide-angle lenses, there’s little doubt it will appeal to those who value extreme low light performance over high pixel density. And then there’s the additional attraction of video, with 4K as an option (albeit with a third-party recorder). Even the price doesn’t look too bad against the Nikon Df, which is not only more expensive but can’t quite match the Sony’s low light capabilities and shuns video capture completely.
