On the fence regarding RIII or RIV

Since the RIII is older there are some compelling reasons out there why one would prefer the RIII over the IV.

Quick question: what's the most compelling reason why one would chose the IV over the III - if, like in my case, the IV is 50% more expensive.

I have had my fingers in the HiFi pies of this planet for many years so understand the extra US$ 1.000,00 to get a much dryer bass when using a particular type of cables has its equivalents in ROI in photographic gear.

I had a look at mirrolessons etc but find that as soon as a so-called "influencer" is part of the game, the findings have to be taken with a HUGE grain of salt as the purpose - well, one of them - is to actually find something.

I have some predefined suspicions that the EVF will be better, but noticeable? 61Mpx versus 43Mpx not robbing me of any sleep ...

... BUT (!!!!) what about colours? I used he A7III and found the colours needed tweaking a lot. Couldn#t get my head around the colour science there. Find the colours from my A7C easier to work with and as a default more appealing. But what about the RIII vs the RIV? Same but different?

Thanks
