What can we expect?
On the surface, the Sony RX100 VII looks the same as the previous iteration. It features the same 24-200mm f/2.8-f/4.5 zoom lens, the same pop-up electronic viewfinder, the same flip-up touchscreen, and the same battery. What makes the Mark VII special is the new image sensor at its core, and the focus and speed performance it promises.
The “newly-developed” 20.1MP 1.0-inch stacked CMOS sensor with DRAM chip built in promises Sony a9 levels of autofocus speed performance. This means a combination of 357 phase-detect and 425 contrast-detect autofocus points, the addition of Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF for both humans and animals, up to 60 AF/AE calculations per second, and blackout-free 20fps bursts with full AF/AE tracking.
