Sony Alpha 7R V review: Is this the king of full-frame still cameras?

By Trevor Tan - 30 Apr 2023

Conclusion and More Sample Shots


The Sony A7R V offers intelligent and quick AF while having a large buffer of RAW images. It can practically recognise everything and photograph them with great detail and sharpness. 

It also handles superbly with easy access of buttons and dials with your right index finger and thumb. Both the improved EVF and the new tiltable and fully-articulating rear touchscreen display are a joy to use for composing your photos.

At S$5,749 (body only), the Sony A7R V is seriously quite expensive. In fact, it is S$750 more expensive than its predecessor at launch. Still, Apart from its hefty price tag and mediocre battery life, we have to say the Sony A7R V is probably the best full-frame still camera in the market right now. 

You can get the Sony Alpha 7R V from the Sony Store Online.
