Are you willing to buy used? If so, I would think you could get an A7III with the kit lens at that price.

The kit zoom is awful, to be replaced as soon as possible. Honestly, it's a waste of a good camera. If you're happy with its level of performance, you might as well go Micro Four Thirds, because you'll get only 16-20MP of resolution from it anywhere away from the center, even when mounted on a 42MP body. I know, because I have extensive MFT and a7III/a7RIII kits, and I did the comparison on a group portrait of 80 people, stopped down with flash.

I'll assume you had a bad experience with an outlier. I find the Sony FE 28-70 OSS to be an excellent kit zoom. There are other lenses that can be used that are much cheaper than the Tamron 28-75 F2.8 RXD. Personally, I would like a normal zoom wider than 24 mm that was also better than my Canon EF 22-55 F4-5.6 USM, but a 24-70 F2.8 is more useful than a 28-x.
