Like the changes of the seasons, Sony’s excellence is becoming an unstoppable phenomenon. A large part of this is the company’s excellent sensor technology, and that includes this 1in marvel.

It packs in a 20.1MP 1in CMOS sensor, 315-point phase detection AF system, capable of a blistering 0.03sec focusing speed, and astounding 24fps continuous shooting speed.

The lens is very high quality, sporting a Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T design. It offers 24-600mm f/2.4-4, 35mm equivalent, and is impressively wide, though not a patch on the length offered by Nikon’s entry.

The ISO ranges from 100-12,800, which allows for low-light shooting. Though it’s not quite up to the same standards as larger sensors, it does do a great job. You also have 4K video, as well as a 40x slow motion feature, which shoots at 1000fps. The image quality isn’t as crisp as normal video, but it’s a spectacle to behold. If it were only a tad cheaper, it would definitely be our number one.
