Interested in Fujifilm. The lens cost is crazy. Need Tamron to make some.

sirkhann: Great overview, as always.

All three cameras are fantastic, but the Lumix is a masterpiece when it comes to the body design and ergonomics, but the S1 has better value for money.

S1R is built like a tank and weighs as much as one. I had one but it was just too heavy. I guess my 64 year old hands just couldn't deal with it. Went with a Z7. Night and day in weight. When I compare pics I think the Panny is slightly better. But I dont want to lug around 3-4 lbs of camera.

Alexis D: A7 III has the best DR, lowlight performance, AF, battery life, lens availability and value. Only a tilt-screen, handling lacking but should be fine with a grip. Clearly the best for weddings, actions and when lighting gets challenging. One thing not mentioned is upgradability. The same lenses can be used with A9 or A7S cameras when more performance is need for specific uses.

S1R has the best EVF, best IBIS, Hi-Res, WR, video, and 3-way tilting LCD! Great for landscape (if not too dark) and commercial posters. A heavy, rugged camera if you do not mind the high price, the weight, and the wait for more lenses.

Z7 has the best LCD, handling in a small size, what else? It's just an OK product, with its Single card slot (XQD), short battery life, Who is it for? Sure, F-glass owners who want to migrate to mirrorless, but the A7r III will take those lenses too. But besides IBIS, why bother migrating/adpting when D850 is clearly better?

Consider also: Which systems has a future?

Sony doesnt even have touch menus. Why does a company known for Imaging (TV's) use such crappy rear screens?

Joe Rito: Hope for something good on the Panasonic front!

Europe has S!R Kit for 2500 EUR. Maybe USA will do
