Sony could abolish the A7S line in favor of the compact FX3 II

The highly anticipated Sony FX3 II might be with us as early as March 2024, and a rumor suggests that it might replace not one but two cameras. To streamline its products there is a chance that Sony will not only have the FX3 II supersede the Sony FX3, but have it replace the need for an A7S IV. 

Released in October 2020, the A7S III is the oldest 'category flagship' model in the Sony camera lineup. The video-focused Alpha series camera is well overdue an upgrade, but a wild rumor suggests that it might never get one. With the success of the original FX3 and the anticipated success of the FX3 II, Sony is being faced with a tough decision as to whether it should continue both lines or merge them.
