The high-magnification 24-200 mm zoom lens delivers superb image quality. Engineered to achieve maximum resolution and clarity across the entire zoom range, it brings remarkable telephoto capability to a pocket-size package, vastly expanding your options for creative expression.
Pocketful of lenses
The ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200 mm F2.8-4.5 zoom lens covers a broad span of zoom ranges equivalent to two standard zoom lenses (24-70 mm and 70-200 mm), all in a very compact configuration.
The camera's lens elements include four AA (advanced aspherical) lenses and two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements. These work together to achieve superb resolution right out to the periphery of the image and throughout the telephoto range.
A new image sensor designed for speed
The newly developed, 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor and the latest BIONZ X image-processing engine open new dimensions in speed and image quality.
Fast, 20fps continuous shooting with highly accurate AF/AE tracking
The fast new image sensor offers continuous shooting at up to 20fps and the camera tracks subjects with AF/AE calculations at up to 60 times per second, even when they're moving erratically or at high speed.
Blackout-free Shooting to keep you on track
Blackout-free Shooting lets you track your subject's movement without interruption on the camera's LCD display or viewfinder screen, with display updates performed at 60fps to minimize time lag.

New Single Burst Shooting function
The newly developed Single Burst Shooting function will capture even very fast-moving action, such as the precise instant a tennis racket hits the ball, taking seven shots in rapid succession with selectable speeds of 90fps, 60fps or 30fps. It allows you to capture decisive moments that might otherwise be very difficult and it can be used with the self-timer. Both JPEG and RAW image formats are supported.
Broad AF coverage and fast AF speed
The RX100 VII features a category-leading total of 357 focal-plane phase-detection AF points, covering a total of 68% of the frame. These are complemented by 425 contrast-detection AF points, and AF acquisition is achieved in just 0.02 seconds, the world's fastest speed.

Real-time Tracking for moving subjects
Real-time Tracking uses subject-recognition algorithms (AI) that draw on color, pattern (brightness), subject distance (depth) and face/eye information to track your subjects wherever they move. Maintaining a constant, steady focus on a moving subject helps you capture every important moment of action as it happens, whether you're taking stills or movies.
Real-time Eye AF for both stills and movies
Sony's advanced eye-detection and tracking performance are the secret ingredients for beautiful portraits. Real-time Eye AF detects human eyes and maintains focus as the subject moves, leaving you free to compose your shot. It's even possible to focus on either the left or the right eye of your subject.
Real-time Eye AF for Animals
Real-time Eye AF is available for animals as well as people. Great portrait shots of pets are easier than ever.
High resolution and exceptional low-light shooting
The large 1.0-type image sensor has a resolution of 20.1 megapixels, with back-illuminated technology and an improved standard ISO range of 100-12800. High levels of perceived image resolution and low noise contribute to superb image quality with realistic-looking textures.
Excellent color and texture reproduction
The newly developed image sensor, and the camera's image-processing algorithms, achieve more realistic textures and colors. In particular, human skin tones look natural, while the vivid colors of flowers are more accurately reproduced.
Optical image stabilization for steadier still shots
Capture high-quality images with compensation for handheld camera shake, even in dim lighting and at telephoto range. The image-stabilization algorithm delivers a level of stabilization equivalent to a 4.0-stop faster shutter speed at 200 mm.
