These A7rV specs are likely not correct


I got this a week ago and I didn’t post it because it was from a new source. Now the same source is spreading the specs to forums and other rumor websites. So I am going to post it too with a WARNING that these are not from reliable source. Also because it’s strange that this source doesn’t mention a couple of things I know FOR SURE ;)

This is the message I got:

Hi Andrea.
Here’s what I know about the specs and selling points of the α7RV.
This all-rounder is priced higher than the α7SIII.
The camera emphasizes resolution in both still and video, and it demonstrates this to the fullest.
My English is not so good.
Please read the following sentences with an interpreter.

A redeveloped image sensor with approximately 61 million effective pixels and the latest generation image processing engine capture high-definition subjects with an overwhelming sense of reality.
Optical low-pass filterless specification that maximizes the sense of resolution
Achieves approximately twice the high-speed readout compared to conventional models (* α7R IV ratio)
BIONZ XR with innovative new architecture for the future
Achieves high resolution, high sensitivity / low noise performance, and wide dynamic range
When shooting in uncompressed RAW or lossless compressed RAW, the maximum speed is 10 frames / sec.
Supports 4D FOCUS image plane phase difference method, wide range, high speed, high accuracy, high tracking AF
WIDE: 759 phase difference distance measuring points are arranged at high density in almost the entire area (about 92%) of the image sensor’s imaging screen. The area for contrast AF is 425 points.
Eye AF right / left eye selection (person / animal)
Real-time tracking
Real-time pupil AF (person)
Real-time Eye AF (Animal)
