The original Sony A7C has been around for quite a while, so it’s no surprise that Sony would plan a replacement, but instead of one new A7C model we have two! Are you looking for resolution or video capabilities? This is perhaps the bottom line for our Sony A7C II vs A7CR comparison, but there are some other differences (and similarities) to take into account.

We’ve always felt that the Sony A7C should be in our list of the best Sony cameras, but we’ve always been underwhelmed by its handling. Sony has always bigged up its small size, though if you were to shave the viewfinder off the top of the regular A7 models you’d end up with a camera that’s much the same size.
