I had two A7RIII's.  I changed one of them to the IV, when it was released.

There are many small improvements in the IV that, for me, added-up to a better shooting experience.  A big one, was the ability to make the focus square a color, so I would not lose it in difficult lighting situations, along with the ability to shoot an APS-C crop and maintain 28mp.  This really added flexibility to my sharp lenses like the GM 135mm.   The increased viewfinder resolution, now allows me to quickly check eye focus-sharpness at 100% magnification, on the fly.

In the end, despite initially vowing to myself that I wasn't going to do it, I converted my backup A7RIII to a IV.
