Sony a7 III or Canon 6d mk II?

I was a Canon user since a few months ago, now I'm an unhappy Sony user ( Sony a6500 + many lenses such the 16mm 1.4 30mm 1.4 12mm 2.0 sony 18-105 sony 16-50...)

why unhappy Sony user:

Sony a6500 it's great for videos but for stills...

-it has a very very poor battery life, 3-4 batteries to fill an ordinary shooting day... with my old Canon 6d 1 battery was more than enough...

-very poor autofocus performance for sports/naturalistic shoots it's pretty unusable, for street photography it's a 50% - 50% low light don't think about it.

-"portability" it's lighter than the Canon 6d + lens but not that lighter to leave the bag at home, so at the end of the day I need to bring with me a medium bag. and I don't have any good walkaround lens such a 24-70 2.8.

-the lag time it takes an eternity to turn on, but that's an issue with all mirrorless so now I'm aware of the "issue"

So my question is. should I consider to buy the Sony a7 III? on paper, this Sony it's the best, someone has tried this new beast with a good lens (GM lenses)? battery life and autofocus in low light are great?

thanks for reading
