I'd consider this only if it were offered for less than $100 US. A better deal is a legacy 50mm lens and adapter. I recently got a Minolta MC 50mm f/1.4 and adapter for about $80 total.

michaelbehrens: Very clever move by Sony. Before Canon and Nikon arrive with their mirrorless full-frame cameras, they raise the bar a little higher with the A7III. Now they are offering a good refined camera of the 3rd generation for a reasonable price. How are Canon and Nikon supposed to keep up with their first full frame mirrorless cams? How are the new mirrorless cameras of the two big ones supposed to fit into the existing price structure, even more so, in case of Nikon, when they have to buy the sensors from Sony? The Photokina will be exciting!

I was referring to full frame mirrorless cameras...

Canon and Nikon keep up with Sony? They don't have one in the market so they aren't even in the race!

Alexis22: If they keep shipping with this kit lens then you lose all the image quality that the new features and sensor brings. I had the original A7 with this kit lens and it was a horrible lens. Outside the center the photos were very very very soft even at a decent aperture.

You do know can buy the new A7iii body only without the kit lens, right? My A7 kit lens is actually quite good. Maybe you got a lemon.

sknippen: My opinion. I've held different Sony camera's (A7II, A77II, A57, etc) But the one that fits the best in my hands is the A57. Not too big, not too heavy, decent grip fits like a glove. I would think it would be fantastic if Sony would bring a mirrorless out in this form factor. Not too big, but big enough to balance larger lenses. My A7II is a top camera to hold with a smaller lens, but with a bigger lens it feels out of balance.

Sony made the A3000, which is shaped like the A57. Too bad the viewfinder and LCD are low resolution.

taktak91: Sony's first and last FF DSLR.
I wish Sony had follow it up.

They did follow up on the A900 - they sold an A850 the next year.

On article Another Hasselblad rebadge or Photoshopped hoax? (185 comments in total)

Didn't know DPReview reported on rumors. I thought they only reported official announcements.
