Just to say that I have just bought the a7iii and used it on holiday for two weeks. As a precursor to my comments, I have an XT2, Nikon D3 and a D500. I have to say that my lounge is full of large B&W prints made with the Fuji and the 35 1.4. I simply love those images and are the only images I have ever put up. Now... I have used the A7iii at ISO 6400 in the Disney parks with poor lighting and for fireworks and night parades. I have to say that this camera with the 24-105 has produced some very clean images indeed. Better than the Fuji IMO. Also clearly better is the AF speed and accuracy of this SONY. I still feel that Ooc colour on the Fuji looks better to my eye. My photography is usually street stuff and shows so I do need fast AF and also one can’t ignore the benefit of high ISO performance as well as IBIS. I really can’t say enough good about this Sony and it’s a problem because I have lenses for the Fuji and Nikon’s and now wonder what to do! I also had to choose between the XT3 and the A7iii because of my lenses but am happy I chose the Sony. My friend bought the XT3 and he loves that. Wait till I show him ISO 6400 on mine!

Congratulations to you! Yes I have found the extra margin with high ISO makes a big difference in opportunities, that has been #1 for me. Shooting is so dark here in the winter.

My A7 doesn't have IBIS but I don't seem to need it. My hands are steady, and I choose higher shutter speeds.

I will get the A7000 if and when it shows up.

For B&W I am in the habit of using my Fuji X-10 or Pana. LX-3.

Thanks. I am now wondering which walk around prime to put on it. It seems I either go with a nifty 50, or a 35 or a 24mm??? I’m just not sure which would serve best for street and environmental?
