This camera has too many compromises in terms of the EVF and handling (buttons/control and ergonomics) for the price being asked. Though I do like the fully articulating screen. For the price, I'd much rather have an a7iii , or wait for the a7iv, for the minimal gains in size/weight offered by this camera.

I suspect that this camera is a first step towards discontinuing their APSC line. If they bring it closer to $1400 MSRP, they could have a winner.

The a7IV will be at least $2500 at launch. Possibly as high as $3000. I think they are putting out the a7c just to hold people over waiting for the a7IV.
With the Nikon Z6II selling for $2000 at launch, I think we will see the same price with the A7IV just like the A7III. The Z6II will be it's main competition and will already be on sale for $1800 by the time it comes out so I wouldn't expect anything close to $2500. Maybe $2200, but most likely $2000. And anyone who has a 6 month old A7C that they paid 2 grand for is going to be a little mad.

Aren't the specs so close to an A7iii? If you own an A7iii is it worth getting this one?
Based on several YouTube videos this is what i found:

Pros:
1. New articulated screen (great for vlogging)
2. Improved coloring
3. Improved/faster focus tracking for videos
4. The openings to slots/inputs are more convenient
5. Lighter (not by a lot)

Cons:
1. Smaller EVF
2. Less shortcut buttons
3. No joystick
4. Only 1 SD slot

If anyone else has more to add/correct, feel free to do so. There are a lot more technical differences I found from YT reviews but those aren't as significant unless you're a professional imo.

Ii have an a7iii and absolutely not worth getting this, unless that flip screen is worth it to you.

I bought the a7iii over 2yrs ago for $1650 and it's still holding up strong. I agree that this a7c should be priced closer to canon RP for it to be a well priced beginner full frame.

Can't wait to see what the a7iv will bring, hopefully not minor updates. We need game changer breakthroughs...

Next year there will be a newer version to be had for $1200 the following year. It will never end for you.
I wish. Unfortunately Sony has developed the nasty habit of keeping almost their entire line current and just adding $200+ dollars to the newer model. That's why they still sell the a6000. It makes their entry level cameras a really good bang for the buck but keeps their prices high on the features that you really want.

$1618 just for the body? Oh Lord!! I bought a Canon T7I/Sigma 55-250 and a Canon 10-18-R/T ticket on Southwest from Chicago to San Diego and still had $$$ left over before I got anyway near $1618. Glad to have a Canon....and a bonus....2 bags flew free on Southwest!
These are not comparable cameras. Most glaring obvious difference is the Sony has almost 3 times the sensor size. That canon is comparable to Sony's 6000 line.

A7c is essentially a more portable A7iii with a flip screen and a small EVF at the upper left corner of the camera. For travel and VLoggers who want a full frame camera, this would probably be one of the best options currently available. For some, the location and size of the EVF could be a deal breaker. This is a good price but I have a feeling it will fall within the next several months given impending announcement / release of the A7IV. Would also recommend trying urlhasbeenblocked to see if you can beat this price.

This will be $1200 by next year. If you don't need it now just wait till next year.
This is the same inert as the A7iii on a smaller body's and different dials. Do you have any reasons to affirm this will drop that much in a year? This was released last month btw. A7iii was released 2.5 years ago and never gone on sale for $1200...

This is essentially the A7III in a more compact size. It's already 2+ years old.

Nice! I just bought an Instax instead of a Canon T7i and lenses. Quality is much better. I also didn't buy any plane tickets so I'm swimming in $$$.

The a7iii is going to be a better all around experience than this camera.

If you're not set on mirrorless you should take a look at Nikon and Canon DSLRs too. Particularly the Nikon D750 or D760. Lots of great lenses for their non-mirrorless systems available.

Basically its an A7iii guts in a different body with a slightly newer video processor. So its not really worth it if you have an a7iii already.
