I would also take handling and ergonomy into account.

it is very subjective, of course, so you should test both cameras before deciding.

Consider you preferences and feel the grip

For example I have become “addicted” to dual back button setup (or ever tripple), so that camera without it is no-go for me

So I would ask myself - how do the cameras feel in my hands, what about the viewfinder,, what about the button setup …

I wish you nice time with whichever camera you chose

Thanks!

I like to do as much research as possible on my own, but glad I posted because I am getting good advice in choosing that I may have not considered before.

Of course, ergonomics - very good point!

A major reason I decided against the A7III and the A7RII before Canon released the "stop gap" mirrorless product EOS R is because of ergonomics. The Sony bodies just felt odd in my hands. The edges were a bit jagged. The lens mount was too close to the grip despite my having long though slender fingers (when they're bent on the grip, part of my knuckles are hitting the barrel of the mounted lens). It may just be me, of course though I know of friends who continue to avoid Sony because of this.
