If real time tracking were to be added to the a7iii, would paying a premium for the a7c (with all its trade offs-EVF, dual card slots, joystick, control dials) still make sense?

Nope.

My thoughts exactly. While the smaller IBIS unit is a form of innovation, there’s too many drawbacks to be paying for the current asking amount (for me at least). The bare minimum for pro work in 2021 should be dual card slots for redundancy. Any less is being irresponsible to your client.

The rest can be mitigated with other things eg joystick, use RT AF. Control dials can live with 2. Mechanical shutter 1/4000, use Eshutter. However, why do I want to deal with these when the a7iii has no such worries for less?

However, Sony is smart to do this kind of segmentation. Clearly there are customers who appreciate the a7c and willing to pay for it. I’ll probably only get it when it drops in price to a more reasonable amount.
