Book: Sony a7 Series: From Snapshots to Great Shots is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very sound book on the A7 series Very thorough run-through of the camera and very well organized. There's one chapter which just basically lists out the same menu items that are in the Sony manual, so that chapter was a waste. But the rest of the book is very good. I have 2 other books specifically on the A7 series, and this book brought up things the other 2 books did not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good read for all Alph Owners. I have only had the book for a couple of weeks but have read half way thru and then began jumping around. I have picked up many great pointers on how specifically to use the Alpha cameras.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent resource This book is the manual that should have come with the camera. Easy to follow. Full of pertinent information and excellent tips on use.
