One of Sony’s newest full frame, mirrorless bodies has been well received, but also left a lot of people unsure of just how different it is to one of its predecessors. Here are 16 of the main differences between the two.
The Sony a7 III has been an undeniable success for Sony, quickly becoming one of their most popular cameras of all time. For a reasonable price, you are getting an incredible arsenal of features, all in a relatively small body. I moved from two large DSLRs to Sony mirrorless a few years back and the number of quality of life improvements were staggering. There are two which I now wonder if I could live without: smaller form factor and EVF. So any efforts to improve and refine the a7 III by Sony are welcome to me, and in many ways, that’s what the a7 IV did, as one might expect.
However, Sony released another camera this year which is curiously placed: the Sony Alpha a7C. It looks on the face of things to be the a7 III lite, with its smaller dimensions and ergonomic alterations. However, there isn’t a great deal else in the way of spec sheet differences at first glance, and at almost the same price, you could be forgiven for wondering what sets the two apart. So, here is a breakdown of 16 of the most important differences.
While I was tempted to buy an a7C as a second body, the single card slot puts me off. What do you think about Sony’s new a7 member? Check out the Fstoppers review here.
