Alxy: just curious, from where you got that info?

Not impressive. Looks like Sony tinkered in together from available parts. No Phase Detect AF, no 4k recording to a card, pixel count is less than competition. Looks like Sony just had to make a camera which would capture the headlines and will have this 4k label.

I am not a pro and I am not earning money with photography (just spending money on it). I have no interest in A7s For my personal use. A7 and A7r look more appealing to me.

no phase detect AF? If we look at the specs published by DPR:

Optics & Focus


  • Contrast Detect (sensor)
  • Phase Detect
  • Multi-area
  • Center
  • Selective single-point
  • Single
  • Continuous
  • Face Detection
  • Live View

mind, I'm just curious, although have not a single grain of intent to actually purchase one = strictly STILLS photog. here !!
