I am a Sony guy for the time being but the recent updates in photography and the new cameras of all the companies have made me thinking about changing system. I use a Sony a7III and it is a great camera in all aspects but some of the experience and the handling bugs me.

I have held (not yet tried) the Z6 and R6 and i was impressed. And their lenses are great and really well made from what I have heard.

So the question is: have you considered changing systems and why? What did you choose if you 've made the switch? What is your experience

I haven't thought about switching, but that's because I only bought into Sony FF relatively recently.  I agree completely on the ergonomics.  I don't care for Sony's ergos, and the major competitors all felt better in my hand.  All things being equal, I'd likely be shooting Nikon Z (I made my decision before the R5/R6 were announced).

There were a few reasons I went with Sony, but the major factor was the very well-developed lens line-up, most importantly including the selection of high quality yet affordable third-party lenses.  As the other systems continue to develop, of course, that gap will narrow (as has the gap on AF, etc.), but Sony has a substantial head start.

At the end of the day, I suppose the question is whether resolving the experience and handling issues that are bugging you is worth the cost of switching.  Only you can answer that, of course.

Good luck!
