And here I've been calling it the Ninja "Vee"... 🙄

panther fan: I like Sony cameras but:

-a single CFE slot
-1/15th readout speed (although most likely at least 14bit)
-5 FPS limit with lossless RAW ?!?! (Downgrade from A7 III)
-low spec screen/ EVF
-no full width 4k 60p

That's tough at that price point. Sony what are you doing?

Before being a downer: Video features like breathing correction, live streaming and the new body are nice. Just not worth any money for me

Totally agree. I was really looking forward to the Mark 4, but find myself rather disappointed for the reasons you have listed!

I was originally planning to pre-order the A7 IV, as I love my A7 III, but it no longer meets my needs. That APS-C crop on 4K60 though is making me have second thoughts.

AndKPhoto: I don't know about you guys, but this is one of the last things that has held me back from moving to Capture One (besides the learning curve).

Now if they will add "open images as layers in Photoshop", and then automatically add the created PSD to the catalog, I'll be all set. It's one of those little things that doesn't seem like a big deal until you do it 20 times a day.

@Timgomes1 Do you use Affinity Photo professionally? How are it's cloning/healing capabilities, and how easy was it to switch from Photoshop? I love Affinity Publisher in place of InDesign, but I use Photoshop almost daily, and I have always been under the impression that Affinity Photo wouldn't quite meet my workflow needs.

Larzac: At last!
I don't really care for HDR which often the quicker way to ruin a photography, but panoramas is very very welcome.

Agreed

Great laptop I am sure, but those benchmarks are making me reconsider Capture One over Lightroom! That is an impressive difference in import/export speeds.

108: I understand the photog wants to show as much detail indoors as possible , hence the use of HDR : some pictures are ok, a lot of them "stink" HDR big time . A little more contrast would go a long way .
Now the use of a 14 mm ff for real estate : some pics do not suffer from this typical ultra wide outstretched perspective so I suppose it's a fl that can bring something to the table . Some absolutely do and we're left with weird looking armchairs and wardrobes etc...price to pay for a wide perspective that is supposed to offer the buyer the best comprehensive view possible . Overall this feeling of strangeness is all over the place . As an agent I never shoot wider than 18 , and most at 20 mm , allowing for a little crop because one is never exactly level in camera , and one ends up with 22 mm pictures that don't stretch the eyes . Ultra wide lenses such as these are a lazy solution , and next time I'll shoot portrait style brackets 35 or 50mm on tripod , and merge them in post .

Like KZ7 said, there is a place for ultra wides, but it is very rare. I shoot real estate and architecture, and probably less than 10% of my images are wider than 20mm. The distortion is too obvious.

AndKPhoto: RIP A-mount. The original Alpha 77 was my first ever camera. It had the most comfortable grip ever, and an awesome articulating screen, but was mediocre in most other ways.
If there's one thing I hate about the A7 series, it is the horrible ergonomics, and the horrible articulating screen.

I have the A7 III, how much improved would you say the ergonomics are on your A7R IV over that? The only camera store in Nashville went out of business cause of COVID.

AndKPhoto: Are the 21 MP oversampled images RAW, or jpeg only? Probably says it somewhere, but I haven't found it.

@mikeran maybe that means the Fuji GFX 100s will get 25 megapixel raws then!

@mikeran Good to know, I was wondering if the bayer sensor design and the basic idea of raw meant you couldn't downscale. At least there is that APS-C option!

Truly epic.

I am surprised at just how quiet Sony kept this up until the launch.

That is a lot of camera! I look forward to seeing what parts of this end up in the A7 mark 4.

Does anyone know the body size in comparison to the A7 mark 3?
