Sony has announced the A7R IV, the latest in its series of high-resolution full-frame mirrorless cameras. Sony's been out of the limelight for a while as rival makers launch new full frame mirrorless cameras. But now Sony is back – and how!

The Sony A7R IV easily beats all of its full frame rivals for resolution, including the once-mighty Canon EOS 5DS, and surpasses the 47.3 megapixel Panasonic Lumix S1R and the 45.7 megapixels of the Nikon Z 7. You have to switch to medium format to beat the pixel count of the A7R IV.
