Sony a7R III now official

Sony has just added another camera to its mirrorless line-up, in form of the Sony a7R III. It comes equipped with a 35mm full frame 42.4MP back illuminated Exmor R image sensor and a bunch of improvements over its predecessor.

While it keeps the same sensor as the a7R II, it boasts more AF points for faster autofocus, a faster continuous shooting speed of 10fps, better low-light performance, a huge 15-stop dynamic range, improved 4K video recording, and an updated BIONZ X image processing engine that is 1.8 times faster than the previous one.
