A7iii to r5/r6 - hybrid shooter advice ?

I shoot documentary style, short narrative, sports for my school that I teach at.

the skin tone and color on the Sonys killed me. Time for a change!

I’ve seen some clog3 footage from the r6 and drooled on my laptop.


1. is r5 really worth the extra $1500 plus taxes for my amateur hybrid needs?

2. lenses - I don’t think I can afford Rf currently. I love the travel look of Kraig Adam’s and he uses a 16-35. Should I get a third party lens and use an adapter? Any trade offs? Some swear by the 24-105 f/4 but can the iso performance hold up in an r6? I do like the idea of the kit lens and maybe a third party 16-35 type with adapter. Maybe add a fast 35mm prime 1.4/1.8 on the adapter and “use my feet to zoom”.

3. any updates on overheating? Transcoding files - I’m in an M1 MacBook Air. I know Sonys files are typically easier. 
4. any card recommendations

5. anything I’m missing?

thanks community!
