(SR4) First info on the A7rIII says it has around 60+ Megapixels. Will not be released for 3-4 months


Name for the new Sony High Megapixel camera is still unclear yet: A9r or A7rIII?

Back on March 8 we did post an A9 and A9r (or A7rIII) rumor from a reliable source. The A9 info he shared proved to be correct. This means his info about the A9r or A7rII shared BEFORE the A9 launch is correct too:

  • The camera under development seems to have 2 models. One is high-resolution model around 60-70MP, and the other is super high-performance AF, super high speed continuous shooting, and super high ISO sensitivity model. (SAR note: One is obviously the new A9 and one is the new A7rIII or A9r).
  • The first model to be released will be the low rez and super high-performance AF camera

Recently another trusted source confirmed he got similar info:

  1. The new A7rIII (or A9r) will have more Megapixels than the A7rII (probably around 60 MP)
  2. Will not be released soon (not within 3-4 months).

The only reason why I am yet not ready to rank this rumor SR5 is that because Sony might make some last-minute changes. I hope to get some more A9r or A7rIII info soon. In the meantime join us here:
Sony A7rIII group and Sony A7rIII page (I will change the group name to “A9r” if the camera will be named A9r)

Note: I updated this post with a correction on the release time and an upgrade from SR3 to SR4 (as I got one more info from a third source in the meantime).
