The Sony A7C is a small in size, big in specs full-frame camera with a large ISO range, 24.2MP sensor, and fast autofocus. Coming in at $1,800, it has the sensor, processor, and autofocus system of 2018’s A7 III in a body that’s closer in size to the A6600. Becca Farsace has the full review.

That giant lens defeats the purpose I think. Maybe a smaller fixed focal length would have been better? Like the loxia or a summicron.

What's that huge lens you are using? Sure takes away from the discreteness of the cameras design. Though I'm not knocking it and may end up buying one.

I love Becca's reviews and always enjoy the VergeCast when Patel has her come on. I really would prefer that she do the Camera photo/video reviews of the Pixel 5 vs. iPhone 12 vs. iPhone 12 Max. Tired of Dieter's android bias.

I hope they kind of do the opposite and make an APSC camera with the specs of the A7Siii with an A6xxx sized body. I use the Sony FS7 and FS5 for video and don't need, nor do I want to pay $3,500 for, full frame for a b-cam and gimbal cam.

The Sony 24-70mm f/2 on a7C looks so huge but it is isn't a very big zoom lens. Also the a9 and a9 II cameras were omitted at the start of the a7 series lineup. The a9 and a9 II have the a7 series body but with just a different name. The a7C is the 13th full frame mirrorless camera by Sony. I hope it will be a lucky one.

The Sony full frame and APSC lineup is very well defined and easy to understand. I can't say the same for the others, especially Panasonic's throwup of letters and numbers with multiple names and re-releases for each model in various regions, or Canon's complete randomness.

Is nobody going to mention that the cameras aren't named with "Mark 3?" That is a Canon thing, not a Sony thing. They're simple "Sony A7S three" or whichever you're referring to.

Using this camera with any medium to large lenses completely erases any advantage of miniaturization and reveals that/where compromises were done (especially EVF & stabilization but also grip).

How do you “stash it quickly into a small bag” when it needs lenses that are as huge as DSLR size lenses? Who do you want to fool after so many others tried it before? Oh, yes, followers. Right. But anyone in his right mind knows what compact is. You find it elsewhere, not at Sony, Nikon, Canon full frames...

Sony needs to revive the Rx1 line. That was truly compact. I had the original, and I still feel it was ahead of it's time.
