OP's gear list has nothing but Sony gear. And all he did was ask a question... no complaints.

Sony is definitely the Tesla of camera brands in more ways than one.

But the price differences of some of the examples he posts are between $50 and $100.00! Seems petty to me. Many thought the EOS R should have sold for $1,500 at its release - while the a7 III was able to command list price for well over a year. And his complaints about the screen and adapters seem like nitpicking as well. As far as I’m concerned, the EOS R is a sham. 1.8x crop, mushy 4K and mushy 1080p, softer than Fuji, Panasonic, Blackmagic, Nikon and Sony. And horrible rolling shutter.

$50 and $100 arent a big deal, but thats at MSRP.  Canon often discounts lenses significantly, and they drop over time.  Sony lenses tend to stick near their original MSRP prices.
