Sony has announced the a7c, a new camera that is by far the smallest model yet in its alpha range of full-frame mirrorless cameras. The a7c looks more like one of Sony’s APS-C models like the a6400 than an A7, with the electronic viewfinder on the top left corner of the camera’s back panel, rangefinder-style.
The a7c measures 124.0mm X 71.1mm X 59.7mm and weighs 509g. It has a 24.2-megapixel full-frame sensor and a standard ISO range of 51,200.
Sony has developed a new kit lens designed to pair with the a7c. It’s a 28-60mm F4-5.6 zoom that’s just 45mm long when retracted.
The a7c is priced at $ 1,799 body-only, which is $ 200 less than 2018’s A7 III. But the A7 III is a couple of years old now and widely available at discounted prices.
The a7c is competing against Panasonic’s new $ 1,999 LUMIX S5. But there are more affordable options out there.
