Re: Good gear choice? A7iii with Leica, 24mm GM

FWIW, you might consider choosing a lightly used A7R III in place of the excellent A7 III. As the brand new A7R IV hits the shelves the price for the 42mp camera should plummet. (Already prices for even new-in-the-box items are reaching the price of a new A7 III.) I suppose that as a Leica/film guy you might not be fully attuned to the wonders of cropping when you have all those spare pixels, but it's a nice feature. A 1.33 crop from the A7R III still leaves you with about the 24mp of the A7 III.

Also FWIW, the Sony 24 seems like an outstanding lens, but the also outstanding and smaller Loxia 25 or 21 might be more in keeping with your manual focus aesthetic.
