What if A7CR and the A7R5 (which is the case where I am, HK) are the same price brand new? Would some of you guys still choose the AC7R? If so, why?


For me it's not a question of the product pricing as I can't compare these two bodies.
People looking for a big body will take the A7RV and because of this never look to the A7c R.
I will never buy the A7R V, even if it's cheaper than the A7c R, as I want a small body.

Life is very easy at Sony

All depends on what body type appeals to you. If you want the small body then the choice is obvious; if you don't have a preference there I would suggest the A7R5 for best performance and connectivity (dual cardslots etc).


Agree. I have an A7R5 but getting a A7CR to use along with it and for travel where the small body is a plus. I had an A7C and A7IV but sold both. Also considered the A7CII but in the end I kept my A7CR pre-order in and cancelled the A7C II.

I'm waiting for user reviews/tests to come out before deciding if I want to go with an A7RV or an A7CR.

I already have an A7IV and I'm thinking of getting A7CR (same price as A7RV) for travel.
Is that the right way to go?

OR the other way round:

Get the A7CII, sell the A7IV and get the A7V for more serious/solo?
I need either one of the compact cameras for travels.
What would you guys do?

I’ve been contemplating the same thing. I just got back from a 2 week trip with an A7iv and some light primes, and really wished for a smaller factor camera because I took it everywhere.

It’s looking my use case will most likely be primarily photos during travel abroad and high quality videos at home. With that said, I think the A7CR sensor and size is a potential end game camera for travel and quick photos at home. I could see myself updating the home video centric A7iv for an FX3 down the line too.

It really depends on how you use your A7IV. Do you need the two card slots or the full size HDMI? If so you may want to keep it. If not the A7CII may easily replace it if the snpmaller viewfinder can work for you. The A7C II was my original plan since I really think 33 Mpixels is enough most of the time. I did change to the A7CR since I don’t shoot video and still have A7RV. Either now has AF with AI assistance so that was a wash. Larger files don’t bother me but for some it might.

The sensor is the same but the IBIS is not. It really comes down to the form factor. A reviewer will not be able to help you with that. Only you can determine if the compromises are worth it in the slightly smaller form factor. Both great camera's. I have been waiting for the A7CR form factor forever but unfortunately the choice of screen Sony put on it is a deal breaker. So I'll be sticking with my RV's for now.

I am familiar with all the similarities and differences. I am just waiting on more user reviews before deciding, especially regarding EFCS.

My preorder for the A7C II went from “tbd” to “Arrives 9/29”, so I guess you could say things are getting pretty serious

I ordered the A7CII about a week after the announcement and am curious if anyone has gotten a shipping notification yet. I'm guessing it's going to be a bit before I see any notifications come my way.
