Mirrorless compared: Nikon Z7 and Sony a7R III

Nikon has finally announced its first full-frame mirrorless camera, the Z7, and it probably won't come as any surprise that it's poised to take on the current high resolution mirrorless king: the a7R III. But, as closely as these cameras may appear on a spec sheet, there are some notable differences in addition to the similarities.

At a high level, both models offer the maximum resolution within their respective product lines, with the Z7 capturing 45.7MP while the a7R III captures 42MP. Each is also designed with both still photography and video in mind, with Nikon leveraging its new mirrorless platform to include video features not found on its DSLRs. Even their prices come in at a similar point: the a7R III has an MSRP of $3200 while the Z7 has an MSRP for $3400.

On the following pages we'll look at some specific comparisons between these two models to see where the similarities end and the differences begin.
