I am a bit confused - A7C is not mentioned at all in the camera section - why?

Cameras do not get a lot of reviews there.
Just ask here if anybody has some experience.

From my experience of different camera's:
The AF system is great (even on my A6400)
The EVF is small (as on my A6400)
Grip is fine (better then on my A6400)

Add a few small lenses and it is a great option. But with big lenses, other cameras might be better suited.

If your after one of them , you might need to hurry .
That's if you can find one .

The place I look for camera reviews is dpreview ; Sony a7c review

Any lens reviews and Dyxum has them all .

Dpreview reviews? In general I am not that impressed by their reviews TBH. The standardized test is nice though to compare cameras.

I assumed Kjell was looking for user experiences by people "like him" - the Dyxum crowd. But if you're looking for reviews, here are another two good ones:

I have got one... anything in particular you are looking for in terms of reviews/opinions?

great little body, pairs incredibly well with small primes. It has a number of shortcomings like 1/4000 shutter limit (1/8000 in SS), can't turn off EFCS, no multi-port for attaching intervelometer etc etc.
Works nicely enough as a second/backup body and small enough that my missus will use it too.
I would not buy it myself as my main body but that's just me and I am spoilt

Thanks nandbytes!

Not anyone of your shortcamings is a problem for me - I am probably the only camera-person alive today that never shoot videos......

I am the process of selling my A7II and all my APS-C stuff and buy the A7C as my main body instead.

It's even worse, we have technical problems with the database and currently we can't add any new cameras and we haven't been able to fix it despite several tries by knowledgable staff members (not me, I know nothing about this kind of database coding)

Best source at the moment for newer bodies (and lots of detail on older bodies, incl. AF film) is Michael Hohner's site
You can see the April Foolishness 2021 exhibition here Another great show of the talent we have on Dyxum

I don't really shoot video either (not with my cameras anyway, use our phones for it).

If you don't mind any of those then you will be perfectly happy with it. Its noticeably smaller than the other FF bodies.
Also one thing that irks me the lack of forefinger dial but if you buy primes with aperture ring that won't be so much of a problem I guess.

All in all its great body with certain limitations like all cameras. As longs you are aware of those and does not bother you the image quality, autofocus is great. Coming from an A7II you will definitely enjoy the long battery life and not having to carry a bunch of extra batteries. I just carry one spare just in case and almost never had to use it.

Perhaps worth getting help of one of the forum members?
I could certain cast a pair of eye over a screen share.
I am not claiming I or anyone else will be more knowledgeable (I am almost certainly not) but sometimes it helps to have a new pair of eyes with these kinda things

What database is being used? I don't suppose I'm any more competent than those who have already looked at it, but I'd be happy to have a look.

I can understand that. I've been using the Nex-6 for a few years and found myself taking it in preference to A-mount gear very often until I got the A7Rii earlier this year. I find the EVF pretty good on the Nex and on the A7C it should be better still. The more recent and expensive compact cameras have more of the valuable features the old A-mount cameras had as standard but early Es did not.

Obviously you know your own requirements better than I do, but I'd suggest your planned move makes a lot of sense if either (a) you're happy with the compact power zoom or (b) you prefer compact primes like the little Samyang f2.8 FE lenses. If not, then once you start exploring the range of expensive fast FE primes and zooms you may find the A7C not only looks silly but doesn't balance well either.

I've several times considered getting the original A7 because it's so much lighter and smaller than later cameras, but it loses too many essential features for me; I haven't used the A7C but the spec looks good for the size. My only reservation is what you expect to get from a 24Mp full-frame camera in that size that you can't get from an APS-C one (and that's not just Megapixel snobbery showing )...
Miranda F & Sensorex, Sony A7Rii, A58, Nex-6, Dynax 4, 5, 60, 500si/600si/700si/800si, various Sony & Minolta lenses, several Tamrons, lots of MF primes and *far* too many old film cameras ...
