My how things have changed over the years. Sony has cemented themselves as last on the list when considering video.
I thought the other 5 cameras were fairly close, but wow, Sony sounded bad.
You can get an external recorder, but that won't help the major Sony video issues, such as too low of a max bit rate to prevent major motion artifacts and macro blocking, their unpleasant video colors, no 10 bit or pro-res option, and the 4:2:0 limit.

Next I'd like to see a comparison of IBIS during video. As bad as Sony's IBIS is, they will beat Canon.

I do a lot of crop and zooming when editing video. So it is helpful.

Sony A7000: We can be sure Canon will have a number of these in the hands of photographers for the Olympics. The rest will be Canon DSLRs and some Nikon DSLRs.
Since the A9 has the same DR as an M43 camera at ISOS 200, it is very likely this camera sensor will beat it. This looks like an A9 with a better sensor, better video, better ergonomics, better colors, and no OSPDAF banding.

HAHA good one!

We can all agree, besides a few guys paid to promote Sony, there won't be any A9 cameras at the Olympics this year. As always it will be Canon and Nikon
That is the way it was at the Super Bowl and every sporting event I've attended.

melgross: Well, at least they’re bringing some features from their top model down, but does it really matter anymore?

Basically the same old sensor. No matter what Olympus. Does at this point, they will continue to fall further behind. If Sony ever does come out with the rumored new sensor for 4:3, it will only stave off the end for a bit more time. For an $1,800 body to have an older 20mp sensor now, is as though Olympus is telling us to just give up.

Sony used the old outdated APSC sensor in 3 new cameras this past year.
DxO rates that sensor and the Oly sensor equal for noise for most ISOs, and the Oly sensor is faster with much less rolling shutter.
If fact there is no ILC with a sensor as fast as the Oly under $3000.

So what you are Saying is Sony should give up APSC first since they are much father behind.

Got it.

Marty4650: I think the days of Canon (or any other manufacturer) having so many different kinds of DSLR are long over.

2020 - 1DX III ($6,499)
2016 - 5D IV ($3,499)
2017 - 6D II ($1,999)
2019 - 90D ($1,199)
2017 - 77D ($899)
2020 - 850D ($750)
2019 - SL3 ($599)
2018 - 2000D ($550)
2018 - 4000D ($399)

That's nine different current DSLR models, with five under $1,000. And this isn't even considering a possible 7D upgrade/replacement.

The market for DSLRs, or even cameras in general, just isn't there any more. Too many very similar cameras at too many similar prices.

2 of the 3 best selling cameras on Amazon US are DSLRs. The other being a Canon M.
They occupy most of the top spots on BCN too.
These inexpensive DSLRs have a very large market still.
I do doubt there will be a new 7D DSLR though. That will be mirrorless.

Say what you want, but on Amazon US and BCN Japan, inexpensive DSLRs are always their top sellers usually occupying the top 4 out of 5 top spots.
Obvioulsy there is a large market for these.

Sony A7000: So Canon is still very profitable and still sells a lot more cameras than everyone else.
Even in Japan and other countries Canon became the #1 mirrorless brand with little effort...and now they are going to take mirrorless seriously.

I gotta agree with T3.
"Canon, they became the #1 mirrorless brand in Japan "
#1 DSLRs, #1 mirrorless, #1 for all cameras.
And if anything their market share is growing.
And they are still profitable.
And Sony guys will say anything to pretend that even though its been the same story for a decade, Canon must be failing.

Big Sonyfan: That "DSLR's are too heavy" argument won't work in space. :D

And there is no thing as gravitational force. It is the warping of space time.
THat's right, what youwere taught about force of gravity is a myth.

The body and controls are not perfect, but they still look great. It bothers me that Sony can't make a center VF body with a joystick for any of their APSC cameras. Ever since the NEX 7 is been all down hill for Sony ergonomics. After many years my rumored A7000 never came.
but boy does this look like a fine and easy to use camera!

Sony A7000: Fujifilm is making the best APSC cameras these days.
Personally I've found for the price/performance/size, APSC is better than FF>

Thankfully the AF on the X-T3 and the X-T200 is excellent. I remember, when as a Sony owner I used to bash it, but after seeing it in person it is impressive.
You forgot to mention 10 bit video. It is really sad how far Sony has fallen behind.

BKLorenzo: Ergo of fuji cameras is worst than sony’s ones

Yeah, the Sony's this past year were a disappointment.
The X-T200 looks a lot better than the A6100 or A6400. And the A6600 is a few years behind the X-T3 in specifications and technology.

I'd love to see an A7000 with a center VF and a larger fully articulating screen like this or the A99, but alas, we know that will never happen now. Its like Sony gave up and is protecting the A7 series.

Those are excellent cameras. But overall they no match for an X-T3 when it comes to video and speed. And this new camera is also comparable but has a much lower price tag as well as smaller size.

In reply to:

BrentSchumer: Hey Sony, Fuji fits a joystick in their entry-level APSC. Can you squeeze one on your "flagship?"

I agree with you guys. The camera is incomplete without a way to select focus. Too often has mine selected the wrong thing. My friends have said the same thing.
If I had to do it all over again, I would switch to Fujifim. Its a no brainer for APSC.

This is a Sony blunder. Their AF system is great but frequently choses the wrong subject if there is more than one. It is too difficult to then switch. My friends and I have talked about what a pain this is.
All the latest cameras have excellent AF, but most others make it easier to switch to the right subject.

I don't know if I like the new film simulation.
Still, the out of cameras colors and images look 100 times better than my Sony.

In reply to:

Fly18: Meeeeehhh. All of those “cons” and %91?!
As DPR said, lots of clumsiness.

The 91% is to apease Sony.

the A7R3 in many ways is a better camera, espically in lower light. The lack of standard features is huge "CON" for a camera priced at over $3000.
The camera is a one trick pony that falls well below competitors for almost everything else like video or sports.

Like the A9II and A6600, is it another disappointment from Sony
