What size LCD is on the Sony A7?

The Sony Alpha A7 features a 3.0-inch rear LCD display, which offers a resolution of 1,230,000 dots. LCD-size is measured across the diagonal of the screen. Having a large and detailed display on the back is convenient for live view framing, image review, and settings control. Naturally, the size of the LCD is correlated with the size of the camera, as a bigger camera body will offer more space on the back to place a sizeable rear screen.
