The Sony A7R V talk has been hotting up a bit lately. It’s not surprising given that an announcement for Sony’s new high-resolution camera is expected to come in a little over two weeks on October 26th before an official Sony Creative Space event begins in New York on the 27th and 28th. Already, though, we might have our first glimpse at what the camera looks like. Maybe. I’m not convinced it’s legit.
It was sent to Photo Rumors by a reader and shows a top camera bearing the A7R V mark and shows a significantly different layout to pretty much every other Sony mirrorless camera. Most notably, the mode dial seems to have moved over to the left side of the camera. It marks a notable shift in direction for Sony, with the A7R series adding the record button of the A7 IV and A7S III while keeping both of the A7R IV’s custom function buttons on top.
