I can now confirm the EU pricing of the Sony A7c:
2099 Euro for the body only
2399 Euro for the body with the new pancake zoom kit lens
Basically you get an A7III in a smaller body and some new features for 200 Euro&Dollars more. What’s different from the A7III? New menu system, improved autofocus systems, fully articulating screen and so forth. But while I like the idea to have a sort of “compact A7III” I think the price should have been a bit lower. Althaugh sources said this camera nails it when it comes to the esthetics. So maybe that’s also something that will attract potential customers.
Sony A7c specs we know so far:
- In mid September Sony will announce the new “Sony A7c” entry level Full Frame compact camera
- Similar Sony A7III specs with 24MP sensor
- It has the same A7sIII fully articulating screen
- autofocus algorithm is the one from the A7sIII
- body shape similar to the A6600 with EVF in the corner (note: it’s NOT a pop-up EVF)
- it has IBIS
- The camera will be marketed for vloggers and youtubers
- Battery is NP-FZ100,
- USB is Type-C.
- it has a single SD card slot
- It has both a mic-in and a headphone jack
- Wi-Fi (11a/b/g/n/ac) and Bluetooth
- price will be above A7III (2.100 Euro and 2399 Euro with kit lens)
- New lens line will be announced too: The compact lenses will have the code “V”
- The first lens will be a compact travel zoom (something like a 28-60mm f/4.5-5.6 and similar to the Nikkor 24-50)
