The Sony A7R V tops the charts for resolution in the Sony line-up, but this new camera also offers 10fps shooting with a huge buffer capacity and 8K video too. The Sony A7R V can do practically anything, it seems.

Without a doubt, the Sony A7R V deserves recognition as one of the best Sony cameras, the best cameras for professionals and even the best mirrorless cameras in general. Like its predecessor, the Sony A7R IV, it's one of the highest resolution cameras you can buy.
