which one I shoud buy Sony A7R IV or Sony A7 III

Sony A7R IV has "Pixel Shift High-Resolution Mode" 240 MP but native max ISO is 32000 with No Anti-aliasing (AA) filter

Sony A7 III does not have "Pixel Shift" and has only 24 MP but native max ISO is 51200 which is higher to A7R IV and had Anti-aliasing (AA) filter

Also, I think A7 III doesn't have 802.11 as in spec click here for wireless notes heading they have mentioned "with NFC and wireless control via PlayMemories Mobile app" not 802.11

Pixel Shift is a very good and important thing but ISO is also so which to choose its difficult. On the other hand when we compare Panasonic S1R, S1H, S1 then these cameras are best when it comes easy usability, IBS, Menu System, easy dials and buttons (I am a lover of Panasonic) but with these model two thing are lacking :

1) they do not use Phase Detect AF for continuous AF (not very fast AF for Videos when compared to Sony PDAF, eye base it is very fast)

2) they do not have Fully articulated Screen

If Panasonic put the above two things it will be the best camera in the market for Full Frame.

don't know about Nikon Z6 and Z7.

My views :

Panasonic :

Pros : Best in usability, Best Menu compared to other company, Best IBS

Cons : Not have PDAF not good continuous AF

Sony :

Pros : Best PDAF best AF compared to any other company (AF is a very important thing for taking photos of a moving subject)

Cons : not good menu, not good in easy usability as Panasonic, not good touch screen as Panasonic and canon, not as good IBS as Panasonic.

Nikon and Canon are new in Mirrorless. Canon does not have IBS

Nikon Z6 Nikon Z7 Panasonic Lumix DC-S1H Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R Panasonic S1 Sony a7 III Sony a7R IV
