Having two cameras is always better than having only one. For the same price and almost the same weight of R5 + 2 zooms you can have A7Siii+A7Riv and 2 zooms (and one is only 20mm shorter, but A7Riv has more mp to crop).

For me - there's no competition right now. Sony is an obvious choice.

You read my mind. I just happened to do some calculations myself for Vietnam. The R5 goes anywhere from around $4,500 to $5,200 in Vietnam, while the a7s III looks like it will sell for the same amount as at B&H. Sony and Canon lenses can be found here for less than in the States, but Canon doesn't make lenses like the superb 20mm f/1.8 G ($907.000, purchased last week) or the 135mm f/1.8 (which I just bought new this afternoon, not grey market, for $1,620.00). And I plan on picking up the a7 IV whenever it's released as my second camera.
