It comes as a kit with the small and weightless do-eve… I can say the same about Canon 5D Mark IV. @Zebebito For me, the perfect A5 would be A7III sensor, 4k capable, IBIS, 5.5 fps, A6500 body a bit beefed up to fit the FF sensor and ibis and then another wheel for the direct aperture control and a bit more grip just to put the new battery.
