Review Excerpt

  • Incredibly small body for a fully-featured, full-frame camera; Resolution that rivals a medium-format camera; Excellent image quality even at very high sensitivities; Decent performance bearing in mind its extremely high resolution; Accepts existing Alpha-mount and E-mount lenses, and can optionally crop to APS-C image circle.

  • Extreme resolution makes focus and lens quality critical; Modest performance; Loud shutter; Lacks hybrid autofocus of the A7; Mediocre battery life when using electronic viewfinder; Slow X-sync; Limited selection of native Sony FE lenses.

  • Weather-sealed, ergonomic camera body; Fast hybrid AF system; Excellent high ISO performance; Improved continuous shooting performance; Better video quality than previous Fuji cameras.

  • Some controls don't impress; Continuous autofocus still lags behind competing DSLR cameras; No 4K video; Fixed LCD without touchpanel.
