It's the lower rez EVF of the a7iii. All EVFs have their quirks.

Actually, when I was researching this, I found numerous complaints from A7Riii users too. So it seems endemic to Sony mirrorless EVFs. Despite the higher rez of the EVF in the A7Riii, the same complaints were voiced by a number of people. IMO that significantly mitigates the advantages of the higher rez EVF in the A7Riii. Interestingly, when I use my GH5 for stills, I don't see this issue at all.

But If you shoot a lot of 4K video as I do with the A7iii, you'll find the issue disappears when using the EVF for video. So something weird changes in the way information is displayed in the EVF in stills mode vs movie mode.
