Messy A7IV mistake at FNAC :)

Ou reader Hadrien spotted these “A7IV” specs in a Fnac store in Switzerland. Obviously a big messy error :)

On a more serious note: I still got no sign the A7IV might be coming at the CP+ show :(  All I heard is that there will be a “new camera” But I strongly suspect this will be a new fixed lens model…
