Sony A7 IV Review (DxOMark): “an incredibly well-rounded hybrid and a highly attractive option for all sorts of genres!”

DXOMark posted a full sensor test review of the newly announced Sony a7 IV (Amazon/ B&H/ Adorama). 

With a high score of 97 points,  Sony A7 IV sensor wins the 7th position in the rankings for all sensor sizes, including medium format. That places the Sony A7 IV sensor performance alongside the older high-res full-frame sensors in the Nikon D810 and Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II compact, and just behind the Sony A1 and Sony A7R IV at 98 and 99 points, respectively.

The sensor score of Sony a7 IV is one higher than that of Sony a7 III, and it seems that the image quality is almost the same as that of Sony a7 III sensor while increasing the number of pixels. The high sensitivity (low light ISO) score is slightly lower, but it is still almost the same as other companies’ 24MP and 20MP rivals, so there seems to be no problem at all. The dynamic range and color reproduction of Sony a7 IV are top class, and the score is perfect.
