fps for various cameras

With all the comments regarding the A7 IV doing 'only' 10 fps, I thought it would be interesting to compare it to other cameras.

I am interested here only in frames per second with full autofocus (not focus locked after the first frame), but not necessarily auto-exposure.

I think these below are all correct, but sometimes it is a bit difficult to know exactly what is being referred to, and in some cases there are conflicting reports about if the stated specs are achievable in reality.  If you think I've got something wrong, then please provide a link to the source, which should refer to shooting bursts with continuous (servo) AF.

Mechanical Shutter only:

2.9 fps A7 (original)
1.7 fps A7R (original)
2.3 fps A7S (original)
5.0 fps A7 II
5.0 fps A7R II
0.0 fps A7S II (could not do AF in burst)

Mechanical / Electronic Shutter

8/8 fps A7 III

5/10 fps A9
10/20 fps A9 II (24 MP, $4,500)
10/10 fps A7 IV (33 MP, $2,400)
30/10 fps A1 (50 MP, $6,500)

5/5 fps Canon EOS R
4/4 fps Canon EOS RP
12/20 fps Canon EOS R6 (20 MP, $2,500)
12/20 fps Canon EOS R5 (45 MP, $3,900)
12/30 fps Canon EOS R3 (24 MP, $6,000)

12/12 fps Nikon Z6 II (24 MP, $2,000)
10/10 fps Nikon Z7 II (45 MP, $3,000)

As far as I can tell, of the three cameras that can do over 10 fps with at least 30 MP sensor, the cheapest is the EOS R5 at $3,900.
