Sony has announced the much rumored Sony a7R V which is the fifth generation of the company’s high-resolution full-frame mirrorless series.
The a7R V will cost you $3,898.00 in the US, £3,999.00 in the UK and €4,500 in Europe.
Preorders have already started in the UK and Europe and will start at 10am ET, Thu Oct 27 in the US.
DPReview mentions in their early review that it will be available from late October in the US, although that’s pretty much now so I’m not sure if that’s correct, late November is more likely. Sony Europe is saying mid-November.
