Seriously though who complained about 1 SD slot. They are trying to go compact here...did the A7mk3 come with 2 SD slots? I thought it didn't. Even on Canon i thought only the behemoth big top of like Mark-X models get that, not the consumer T line, but it's been a while I cross shopped cameras.
That said, I still have an a7mk2 that I moved up quickly from A7 for IBIS and haven't really needed much more. I also have an RX100mk4 that I thought I'd get more use, but the tiny EVF and buttons make it a bit tedious to use and there lies the issue when cameras try to go compact, you compromise too much. I would consider something like this to replace my 2 cameras maybe when ver 2 comes out and/or price drops on this more (wish it was more than 24MP by now though).

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.

Thanks op. Just got the cranberry juice deal earlier. This camera would be perfect to film myself drinking cranberry while wapping. (Wet a$$ pu_____)

Over the past couple of years, camera enthusiasts suddenly decided high-end cameras need 2 slots. A7 II only had 1 slot, and the A6000 series still only have 1 slot, but A7 III has 2 slots. Nikon Z6 and Z7 only had 1 slot (though it was XQD not SD), but the recently announced Z5, Z6 II and Z7 II all have dual slots.

Good camera if your a vlogger and portability is paramount. 24mpixel for photograghy is middle of the road. Price is high because its a sony. This is a better camera than fuji xt4 and other near comparables like the panasonic s5 and canons are even more.I rN
I rather have an xt4 than this camera, and I say this as an a7riv & a7siii owner lol

I think it's funny how not having two card slots suddenly became a deal breaker. I get it if your a wedding photographer or you're talking about a high end model that has plenty of space in the body for two cards but since when did that become a standard feature.

The whole stuff about this camera being compact is utter nonsense. As soon as you throw a lens on them they are no longer compact and the only real difference between this and the A7iii in size is the EVF on the top. I have had everything from the Sony a5100 and a6000 up to having both Canon and Sony full frame mirrorless cameras right now and all have to go in a bag with a lens on, hell truthfully even without one on. The only high end camera I have that is truly compact and pocketable is my iPhone 11 Pro, other than that you are paying basically A7iii prices for a camera that weighs only a third of a pound less, has a flippy screen and lacking several features that an A7iii has, it makes no sense.

For me an immediate dealbreaker was only having one dial in the thumb position and removing the front dial. I adjust on the fly frequently and am too used to having both dials available.

Is it absolutely necessary? No. Will your SD card fail? Probably not, but when I go overseas on vacation it cost at least maybe $3,000 for the trip, so how much is is worth now and how important are two cards if say all your photos and video from your trip are wiped out? I don't have to worry about it with my iPhone, all my stuff gets backed up to the cloud. Professionals always seem to think what they do is the only thing that is important and nothing anyone else does matters. For what Sony is charging this camera should have two card slots, end of story and let's be real, all these damn cameras should have some sort of internal memory too for backup or a just in case you forget your SD card, even something like 16GB.

Still a bit high IMO. $1300-$1500 would've been perfect but Sony doesn't wanna cannibalize their APS-C lineup
Hope it will be below $1500 on black Friday and/or in the holiday season.

His point is that you aren't being helpful at all. People considering this camera wouldn't compare to a t7i.

T7i - 45 autofocus points, APSC sensor, 6fps, 1080p 60fps video

sony a7c - 693 hybrid autofocus points, full frame sensor, 10 fps, 1080p 120fps or 4k 30 video

these are totally different cameras for different purposes.

Maybe try posting the T7i on a sony a6000 thread though.
Totally agree... His comparison wasn't helpful at all... Comparing an entry level non-full frame camera to the A7C... Confused Not even in the same category.
