I was asking myself the very same question, and finally settled on the A7riii. LOL. Thought about it for weeks. I think it kind of bugged me to be 2 generations back even if the price was right. And I have 5 Sony's, so I really didn't need another 24mp body. I do have the A7rii already, and would have been happy to have a second one at that price, but the urge to upgrade a little proved too strong. <<my confession. That, and I still needed another write-off for 2019.

As someone who has both - how big is the difference (in real life usage) with the AF and the buffering / usage speeds?

The R3 has a big buffer, 80 shots, on par with the 73, but it takes longer to clear.... so technically it has a much bigger buffer since it deals with larger files. The r2 has a tiny 14 shot buffer with slower memory, so as soon as you hit the buffer, it’s game over.

negligible AF differences. If you want real AF difference, A9 is clearly in a different league.
