Sony added an impressive addition to their full-frame mirrorless camera lineup with the Sony a7R III and the FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS Standard Zoom.
As image processing power and efficiency moves forward, the new Sony a7R III combines top-notch features with a compact, lightweight body. This results in a versatile and reliable tool for photographers, videographers, and multimedia creators. Additionally, the 35mm full-frame, 42-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor makes use of a gapless on-chip lens design and AR coating. This works on top of the sensor’s seal glass. As a result, these factors improve the light collection efficiency of the device. The end result? We get a device with high sensitivity, wide dynamic range, and low-noise performance.
It’s also equipped with an innovative 5-axis optical image stabilization system. This yields a 5.5 step, 5 shutter speed advantage. This stands as the world’s highest compensation performance. It also generates outputs that have less blur-fit, especially when taking pictures of moving subjects like the sea or waterfalls.
A Strong But Lightweight Lens
Sony also launched the new FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS lens which delivers excellent corner-to-corner sharpness . This applies, regardless of zoom range, while also producing a spectacular bokeh effect, or background defocus. Of course, the high image quality works due to an advanced optical design featuring four aspherical lens elements. Two of these, in fact, are high precission AA lenses. Plus, three strategically-located ED glass elements help minimise chromatic abberation, or simply put, faded or ‘dead’ colors.
The lens also has Sony’s original Nano AR coating to minimize flare and ghosting. On top of that, it utilises a circular aperture to ensure it delivers a consistent bokeh effect for all of Sony’s G series.
