Sony have launched their A6500 SYSTEM camera, and also a ‘Mark V’ version of their RX100 flagship compact, have been launched in time to make the Christmas market. The 20.1 megapixel RX100 Mk V has what Sony claims is the world’s fastest AF acquisition at 0.05 seconds and also uses the world’s highest number of AF points on a sensor: 315 in total. Its one-inch sensor has been developed specifically for this model. The lens is a 24-70mm zoom with an f/1.8 maximum aperture. Sony have also added 4K video.

The new A6500 features a ‘4D Focus’ system and comes with 425 phase-detection points. It has a capture rate of 11fps with continuous auto focus and supports up to 8fps in live view shooting mode. It also features five-axis in-body image stabilisation and a 24.2 megapixel APS-C sized sensor. 4K-video is available for shooters in Super 35mm format.
