Sony has silently launched the Sony A7R IVA (ILCE-7RM4A). The new model differs by the rear LCD screen resolution, which is now 2,359,296 dots, up from 1,440,000 dots in the original. Also upgraded is the USB-C port that supports USB 3.2 (SuperSpeed USB 5 Gbps).
Although the increase in resolution is welcome, existing owners are likely to be perplexed by the new model. At this time it’s not known if any other improvements have been made – there has been no official announcement.
The new camera is listed for sale on the Sony US and Sony UK sites and appears to replace the existing model. Curiously, the A7R III has seen a similar upgrade and is differentiated by the same ‘A’ prefix, the A7R IIIA.
The new model was mentioned by Nokishita Camera. Along with news of the upgrades, the serial leaker says Sony is about to launch a new FE 14mm F1.8 GM prime lens.
