There’s been a word that Sony A7III could come in 2017. According to the latest reports, it will be announced as soon as today! The A7II replacement will feature some of the A9’s specs, such as the sensor, the body, and the battery. What’s more, it could also feature the A9’s autofocus system. Other than these, website Mirrorless Rumors has revealed a few more specs we can expect.

Before we hear the official announcement, here are some of the specs the A7III will reportedly feature, according to Mirrorless Rumors:

  • 24MP sensor same as the A9
  • Same A9 body (which also means same battery)
  • 6fps with mechanical shutter
  • ISO up to 51200 (expanded to ISO 204800)
  • 693 phase detection AF (the same as A9),
  • minimum focus sensitivity is EV-3,
  • 4k 30p recording,
  • joystick
  • touchscreen

For now, we don’t know the exact time of the official announcement. But stay tuned for more info, as we will post more details about the camera, availability and the price as soon as it gets officially announced.

UPDATE: According to the latest report from Sony Alpha Rumors, Sony A7III will not be announced today after all. However, we’ll probably not wait much longer. They could announce the camera soon before the PhotoPlus show in October.

    …sounds rushed, as if to keep the sonyfanboys interested while the Nikon D850 is riding high praise. As I wrong?
