according to SAR.
Has new 42mp sensor. Listed on B&H for $3,198. No other details available yet.
Preorder @ B&H $3,200:
Looks like it has IBIS
Super nice specs, but $3000.00, no thanks.
Still no APS-C replacement.
Has to be a killer camera for that price.
I'm hoping for a new A6000 or A7000 as well.
Wow - sensor is back illuminated!
Also has 4k, internal.
399 AF points, superior AF system I assume
For sure it will be an amazing photographic tool!
The specs on this camera are monstrous! Even has silent shutter
PDAF with A-mount lenses using LAEA3
This is a beast! and priced like one too!
Yeah, considering the price of its competitors $3,200 is amazing ... but still more than I could possible spare. If I had that much money to drop on photo gear it would be better spent on lenses but there is a LOT to like about this new camera ... on paper. We'll have to see how it holds up in the real world. For example 399 focus points sounds great but only 40% better AF performance than the regular A7R (which was pretty pokey)?! Honestly I expected better given the other specs. However the ability to use PDAF to focus A-mount lenses with an LAEA3 is pretty awesome.
The IQ in photos and video may really kick it up a notch.
I think the value of Amount lenses just went up.
I wonder if Sony will release an LA-EA5 in the future that includes support for older screw drive lenses. Might be the beginning of the end of the SLT mirror.

They've got some photos of slides from the presentation. Impressive technology in this new A7rMk.II, as well as a new RX100IV and RX10II.
But, alas, no new APS-C body... no news on an A6xxx/A7000 yet.
New LCD and EVF too??? Different from A7II I assume?
The A7RII does PDAF with legacy glass without the need for a LA-EA4. This is something I suggested that Sony do in the past. Since the new cameras have PDAF, there's no longer a need for a PDAF module. I wish Sony would implement this in a firmware update for the A6000. Then I could remove the mirror from my LA-EA4 and get back a 1/3 of a stop. I could also do away with that incredibly delicate mirror.
Evf has better magnification and is sharper in the edges, not sure about the lcd though
They don't even need to do that. They just have to support the LA-EA4 with the mirror removed. It comes out easily since it's so easily damaged to make replacement user doable.
Nice! Very nice! Way too pricey for me, and other than the silent shutter, I'm pretty sure that all of the other specs are overkill for my kind of shooting. But hey, maybe I can pick up a good used one after a year or so just to see what I could wring out of something like that. Definitely blows anything Canon or Nikon has on the market out of the water. I'm feeling pretty good about having hitched my wagon to Sony three years ago.
