If you're looking for a new addition to Sony's A7-series of full-frame mirrorless cameras, you might only have to wait until the coming fall. According to a report from Sony Alpha Rumors, they have heard from one of their sources that the Sony A7III camera is expected to be announced this coming fall.
To be more specific, they have put it between October and November, so we'll definitely be keeping an eye out for it then. The report also claims that the A7III will be sporting a brand new 24MP sensor and it will also come with a new autofocus system, both of which are apparently based on the Sony A9 which was announced earlier this year.
So if you liked the Sony A9 but didn’t like the price, the Sony A7III could be a good alternative at a presumably lower price tag. However note that only the sensor and AF system are the only borrowed features from the A9, and that the 20fps frame rate will most probably not make its way into the A7III, but if you don’t need to shoot that fast then we guess it shouldn’t be an issue.
In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but it’s safe to say that many are looking forward to the A7III considering the positive reception of the A7-series in general.
