Sony just keeps hammering away at the competition. I remember it was just a few years ago when I said that Sony does not have any real pro level models, and if you are just starting out and did not know how far with photography you would go, steer away from it. After all, when choosing your first camera, you want to make sure there is a clear progression path should you improve and desire to go pro or semi-pro.
That is certainly no longer the case. In fact I am now seriously contemplating switching.... (Are you listening, Sony? I can be bought!)
Their latest refreshing of the full frame A7 camera still includes the same 24mp sensor - that does a great job in low light by the way - but they have improved AF by 30% thanks to some software tweaks.
The real news is the absolutely amazing new image stabilization built right into the camera that features a jaw dropping 4.5 stops of stabilizing power via a brand new concept of 5 axis control! Not sure what 4.5 stops looks like? Check out the video below.
Nice job, Sony. I am impressed.
