Sony announces A7R III, FE 400/2.8 and FE 24-105/4 today!
Sony just announced the all new A7R III full-frame camera. Packing the same 42.4 Megapixel Back-Illuminated CMOS sensor as its predecessor but stuffed with a number of significant improvements inside.

Now capable of 4k HDR video and 10fps continuous shooting with autofocus, it also hosts an improved circuit design that claims to deliver 15 stops of dynamic range.
Both mechanical and electronic shutter modes support 14-bit RAW, and the built-in stabilization now handles 5.5 stops of compensation. Pixel Shift Multi Shooting mode capturing four frames is a new feature that allows the removal of demosaic and false color artifacts in post-production. It should also improve resolution and color fidelity.

The A7R III sensor shares the same 399-point PDAF system as the previous A7R II, but includes an additional 425 contrast-based detection AF points. Auto-focus speed, subject tracking and EyeAF now operate at double the speed, while light levels is down to -3EV.
This camera shoots bursts at up to 10 fps using either the mechanical or silent electronic shutter. For video, 4K HDR recording is available in both full-frame or Super-35 modes. In addition the option of S-Log 3 and Hybrid Log Gamma HDR, as well as 1080 at 120 frames per second is included.

The new Mark III shares many A9 features like dual SD slots, AF joystick, AF-ON button, PC Sync port, Quad VGA OLED viewfinder, and the NP-FZ100 battery pack. The screen is touch-sensitive and theres both USB-2 and USB-3 ports. Unfortunately PlayMemories apps are no longer supported.

Pre-orders links are now open!

Sounds like my A9 pretty much. Slower capture which Im fine but still silent which I love. Couple other nice features as well USB 3. Dual slots, A9 battery. I might be in. Ill sell my A9 for it. One concern is AF speed and low EV on it for low light stuff.all I anted was a A9 with 42mpx all along and looks like I got it. 15 stops is nothing to sneeze at either. I do want the zoom too. Might get that first

Nikon and Canon much be in shock!
There goes the air in the D850's sails!

I was hoping for the FE400/4 so I could heft it. I'll keep adapting the 400DOii in the mean time.

For me, the biggest advantage and reason to buy would be the 3.69 million dot OLED tru-finder.

I can finally condense my gear from the A7Rii and a6500 to this since it gives me the res and speed combo I need.

Can't wait.

I'm disappointed because I wanted a 24MP A7III.
After 2 years with the A7RII (sold it just in time) my personal conclusion was that I don't like the sterile look of a 42MP sensor. I prefer the look/tonality of sensors with bigger pixels.

Start getting the fast cards folks. I have Sonys now for my A9 and they work great. I can keep my extra A9 batteries, extension grip and maybe my L bracket.

Looks like the perfect upgrade for me. Love the A7r2 sensor, dislike the turtle part of the camera. Really looking forward to read about first impressions regarding AF speed and operational speed.

Oh boy, this is a juicy release. I would have liked a resolution jump for lower FPS, but I'll take it.

The one big thing for me is to see what pans out with DR at various resolutions.

I suspect the A7III & A7sIII will be launched in the 1st quarter of 2018 and then in the second half of 2018 the A9r & A9s will be launched

I operated under the assumption that they would announce an a7iii today. Instead those suckers come up with the camera I always wanted, an e-mount version of the a99ii that allows me to combine my landscape and wildlife cams into one setup. Damn you, Sony, now I have to find a way to fund that thing.

Are you going to replace your A9 with this then?

Yes as much as I love the A9 and everything about it , I want 42mpx. So yes this is exactly what I wanted all along

Also love the price because its less than what I can sell my A9 for so that really helps as I want the 24-105 as well


USB 3 will help too as I shoot tethered a lot. At the moment Im not seeing a downside

I can't afford this camera, but I'm ready to buy a sub $2k A7rii. The used market is going to get flooded soon.

I'm actually curious to see reviews on the 24-105 G lens though.

Final stroke: selling all Zeisses. All Canons.
Now a piece of good advice on lenses for this marvel is precious. So far I've decided on the MF section. Laowa 15, Lox 21, CV40 1.2 Nokton and CV65/2 Apo. But have still to feed the new AF of this new release with a good set
