Sony A7R III
Sony's full-frame, 42-megapixel A7R III is the king of mirrorless cameras, with category-leading resolution, low-light performance and video shooting capability. It also has an excellent electronic viewfinder and stellar autofocus capabilities with spot-on face detection and much-improved subject tracking. Battery life could be better and its menu system is still clunky, but this is nitpicking on an otherwise world-class camera.

In this case, they took what was already one of the best sensors on the market, combined it with advanced processor from the fastest full-frame camera (the Sony A9) to produce a new hybrid simultaneously having very high resolution and very high performance, particularly in its autofocus system.
