7360 x 4912 pixels take up an average of roughly 14MB, and that's if you're only shooting JPEGs

Image quality is ultimately what it all comes down to, right? We can talk full-frame specs and compact ergonomics until we're blue in the face, but the true test of a camera like the Sony Alpha 7R is in the pictures it produces.

Sony is confident enough in its new Alpha series to have allowed us to take a set of sample photos today. The firmware on board isn't yet final, it's still being tweaked and updated, but these images should give a good indication of what Sony's highest-resolution camera sensor can do. All photos were taken using the kit 28-70mm lens.
