Sony Alpha A7R mk III : star eater ?

Hello

 

I'm still very attracted by the sensitive sensors from Sony and wonder if I could buy the new Sony Alpha A7R mk III.

 

BUT

 

I am also very interested in nightscapes and astrophotos (large field with 200-300 mm focal lenses).

 

I am aware that the A7, A7S, A7R, mk I and mk II all suffer from the star eater filter, a filter dedicated to eliminate the hot pixels from the photos that misleads stars with hot pixels. There is indeed a petition ongoing on Change with more that 6200 supporters to date (that's huge and never seen in the photography industry !). This filter cannot be desactivated and affects the RAWs (this is not the LENR).

 

Therefore, before spending a lot of money to replace my Canon 6D and its lenses (24-70 f/2.8L USM II and 70-200 f/4L USM), I want to know if Sony officially adressed that issue on the A7R mk III.
