SonyAlphaRumors has updated the specs list for the upcoming Sony a7C II and a7C R with some additional information. It seems that neither model supports 8K video, and it may be difficult to deal with heat generation due to its small body. And both cameras will have only one card slot. The official announcement will be on August 29th, 2023.

Differences between Sony a7C II and a7C R:
- a7c R has the 4D fully articulating screen and IBIS of the a7R V
Although the “a7C R” has the same 61-megapixel sensor as the “a7R V”, it does not support “8K”, and probably has a single card slot, because it does not support 8K. isn’t it? I’m guessing.
It is good news that the “a7C R” is equipped with the same AF system as the “a7R V”, and the information source seems to have said that it is equipped with the same “IBIS system”.
The big difference between “a7C II” and “a7C R” is the movable LCD monitor, and “a7C R” seems to adopt “4-axis multi-angle LCD monitor”. As for video performance, he commented that it supports 10bit 4K60p, uses the same 2.36 million dot EVF as the “a7C II”, and has a single card slot.
The body of the “a7C II” and “a7C R” are exactly the same, the image sensor is different from the 33MP / 61MP sensor, and the final price information (rumor) has not yet been obtained, but the price should probably be different.
Both models will be entry-class full-size machines, and although they will have different functions than the “a7 IV” and “a7R V”, they will be in a price range that is easy to purchase.
Regarding the “FE 16-35mm GM II”, he commented that it continues to be really compact and achieves very good (optical performance).
