The Sony a7S II was a popular camera, but photographers and filmmakers have been waiting for the third iteration in the series for a few years now, with some beginning to wonder if it will ever make it to the market. The good news is that Sony has confirmed that we can expect the a7S III later this year with some major changes.
In a recent interview with DPReview, Kenji Tanaka, VP and Senior General Manager of Sony's Business Unit 1, discussed a wide range of topics about the company and its future, including the a7S III, which we will see later in the summer. The original a7S and a7S II were quite groundbreaking at the time of their releases, but in the meantime, various manufacturers have released some spectacularly impressive cameras, so it will certainly be interesting to see what Sony has planned for the third version. Although Tanaka did not confirm too many details, he did say that the camera will be a "complete redesign of the whole system, including the image sensor." Personally, given Sony's penchant for leading the pack when it comes to technological innovations, I am quite excited to see what we'll see. Check out the full interview here.
