Sony a7R V Coming in 2022 with 102MP Sensor?

Image Credit: SAR

SAR leaked an image indicating that the Sony a7R V will be released in 2022 with a new 102MP full frame sensor. Of course this image is fake, and the adoption of the 102MP sensor is just wishful thinking of SAR, but since Sony actually has a lineup of 102MP sensors, there is a possibility that this 102MP sensor will be adopted for the Sony a7R V. Hmm…

However, as SAR says, it will be convenient for trimming, but performance such as high sensitivity performance, dynamic range, and reading speed will decrease, so it seems that the Sony a7R V will be a camera with a fairly peaky character.
