DXO: Sony A1 – Combines The Best Of The A9, A7R, And A7S Series In One Package


DXOMark has been a standard of measure for cameras for quite a while now, but in recent years many of the flagship cameras have hovered around the top of the rankings with medium format kind of breaking the rankings even with one of its worst cameras the Hasselblad X1D. It’s also interesting to note that the top Sony camera on the list is still the Sony a7RIII, which I used to own and it was fantastic. Below is an excerpt from the review or you can read the full review here.

After the introduction of the Sony A9 it seemed that Sony had established a flagship series; with the appearance of the Sony A1, however, that’s clearly not the case. Indeed, on paper the Sony A1 combines the best of the A9, A7R, and A7S series in one package, and naturally that doesn’t come cheap.

The Sony A1 has a high-resolution 50 MP sensor that produces exemplary images and is practically identical in performance to existing high-end sensors which feature far lower pixels counts, such as those found in the superb Leica SL2-S and in Canon’s equally superb flagship EOS-1DX Mark III. Combined with the wide range of available native-mount lenses, its sensor makes the Sony A1 a highly attractive option for professionals working in a wide range of genres and markets, and will no doubt be on the wish lists of a tranche of enthusiasts and amateurs alike.
