The latest rumblings suggest that the Sony A7R V will be announced next week, on October 26. And while the camera will possess the same image sensor as its predecessor, it is said to come with a new processor and new autofocus system with AI deep learning. 

While it may be a surprise that the Sony A7R V apparently features the same 61MP sensor as the Sony A7R IV, the big news is that it looks to be capable of 8K video – albeit with a crop.
