Hands-on with the Sony a7 IV

Back when we reviewed the Sony a7 III in 2018, it changed our perception of what a 'basic' full-frame mirrorless camera model was capable of. With solid image quality, autofocus, video features and battery life, it was truly a jack-of-all trades that we thought would be a great fit for all kinds of photographers. But at the time, its only real competitors from other brands were DSLRs: whereas today, the all-new a7 IV finds itself in a very different landscape.

Sony obviously knows this, and compared to its predecessor, the a7 IV has been redesigned, refined, and updated in just about every way. So let's take a tour of this new 'basic' model from Sony, and see if the updates are enough to tempt you to upgrade (or, perhaps, even switch systems).
