A7r:
– Lightest FF camera with interchangeable lens ever
– 36.4 MP
– gapless lens design on sensor (no AA filter)
– each on-chip lens is optimally positioned depending on its location to accommodate the sharper angle of light entering the periphery, which is caused by larger sensor dimensions being teamed with the E-mount’s short flange-back distance

– 14-bit RAW image
– ISO 100-25600 (with 50 ISO extension)
– Advanced 1200-zone evaluative metering
– 4fps (Max. 1.5fps, Speed Priority Continuous shooting)

– 1080 HD uncompressed, 60p/24p and 60i frame-rates. AVCHD and MP4 codec.
– 2.4M dot OLED EVF
– 25 points contrast AF
– +/- 5EV compensation
– tiltable 3.0” (1,229k dots) Xtra Fine™ LCD
– Multi-interface Shoe for flash
– PC control with remote video capture control
– Wi-Fi®/NFC control
– Playmemories App
– weight 465g (with battery and card)
– battery 1080 mAh for 340 shots (with LCD monitor always on!)
– weather sealed body

A7 (I do only list what’s different from the A7r):
– 24 MP (has AA filter)
– 117 points (phase-detection AF), 25 points (contrast-detection AF)
– 5fps (Max. 2.5fps, Speed Priority Continuous shooting)

Sony countdown live stream!

The video on top is the official Sony countdown (Click play to start). As you see Sony will announce the A7-A7r and RX10 at 7am London time. I will now take a short break and try to sleep a couple of hours.

I have one last request. At 7am London time things will become very busy and I would glad if you can help me to link to reviews, news and early preorder links to EU and US stores. Just send me an email at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com if you have something interesting to share.

Thank You all guys! It’s nice to live such an exciting time with you!
