DxOMark completed their full in-depth review for 24.2MP sensor inside the Sony a7C camera, and the Sony a7C gets an outstanding overall DxOmark score of 95 points with a combination of 25 bits color depth, 14.7 EV dynamic range, and 3407 ISO low-light score.

  • Lightest interchangeable lens full-frame camera
  • Full Frame 24.3 MP resolution
  • Hybrid AF w/ phase-detection for DSLR-like speed
  • Fast Intelligent AF optimized
  • Compatible w/ current Sony E mount & new FF lenses

Conclusion from DxOMark:

Featuring a rangefinder-style body, the Sony A7C is an intriguing step between the Sony A6xxx series and the DSLR-style A7xxx models. While targeting the hybrid stills and video market, the design means it’s likely to find favor with vloggers and others looking for a highly compact and portable full-frame camera, and it’s an attractive alternative to the larger A7 III and A9 models. At launch, the price is advantageous as well.

The BSI-CMOS in the Sony A7C performs well altogether. The results are practically identical to the sensors in the Sony A7 III and A9 II, and it produces a nice balance between maximum dynamic range at low ISOs and maintaining a usefully wide dynamic range at higher ISO settings. And the same can be said for color depth. All combined, the Sony A7C is an attractive option for landscape, travel, wedding, and portrait photographers, while the rangefinder-style body should also appeal to the traditional street photographer.
