Hi,

I am shooting Fuji (X-T3 firmware V4.00) and Nikon D500, mostly for what I would consider "action/sport" type shooting (stills only), but am curious about Sony.

At the same time, I am also kind of curious about Full frame.

So I am thinking of getting either an A6600 or an A7 III (I would like an A7R III for the more pixels, but seems that the A7 III is better for action/sport, so limiting this question to A6600 vs A7 III).

I am not interested in renting, so this is for a purchase for a new one.

Thoughts/recommendations about which one to get??

Thanks,

Jim

I would go for the A7III.  You give up the amazing new Sony AF but get access to a much better affordable lens lineup, higher image quality, better controls, less rolling shutter, a faster card slot, etc.  The A6600 was a weak refresh of an out-of-date lineup.
