sceneIt: Sony fanbots like to say they need more interesting lenses to choose from, and when companies make them, they whine and complain... go figure.

@ fjbyrne - I agree with you completely!

KrisAK: I'd given this camera serious thought. Their 28mm would cover most of my needs, so the lens cost would be minimal, at least initially.

My issue is the EVF and slower-readout sensor, both of which are a step-down (correct me if I'm wrong) from the one in the A9...and for that matter, the EVF in the X-H1. Meaning I'd be dropping $2K on a body with tech that's already somewhat behind the curve. It might seem odd to quibble, given everything else this camera's got. But 2K is still 2K.

I think there’s a reason why Sony calls it their ‘basic model’.

Henrikw: Now then - 5d IV or A7III to use at weddings with my Canon, Sigma and Tamron lenses? Which camera option has the best focus accuracy?

As a wedding shooter, you’ll appreciate the eye af and silent shutter a lot and the amazing low light capabilities. I do encourage you to give it a try before you buy and see what you think.

Photomonkey: Waiting for the A7IV.
JK. Well done Sony.

Sony claim it to be their ‘basic’ FF camera so it’ll be interesting what will be their next offerings!

Anthony1970: All what counts to me is real world photography, so far each camera I possess is capable of doing what I bought it for.

Believe me respect for other people choices/ preferences is not so difficult.

Constantly arguing is wasting your time and kills your creativity.

It's spring and I prefer to go out using any of the camera systems I have and enjoy.

Very well said Anthony and I think that’s what photography is all about.

CoogeeCat: BUT .... isn't it incredible how we as photographers are presented with such (and not just Sony) innovation ... it's a great time to be a photographer.

Indeed! Happy days!

clickclack: Either way you put it, Sony has delivered a wonderful camera. Here is hoping Nikon and Canon will be able to catch up. May Fuji continue their current success!
In the mean time, I am just happy with my current cameras.

Indeed. It’s a good time for all of us as we have so many amazing cameras from different manufacturers these days.

Cameron Swinton: How does the EyeAF of the A7III Compare to the A7RIII? The review suggests that the A7III is the best next to the A9 but I’m curious how much different it is than the A7RIII.

I’m in the same boat as you Cameron, I’m thinking of whether to get another a7riii or the 7iii! Sony is making it difficult for us. 😊

In my industry working in pathology laboratory, we are constantly looking for the latest techs out there every 3-5 years so we can give our service users (patients) the best service possible....techs do evolve and make sure you don’t get left behind.

I really feel sorry for people who can only see the negative side of things. I won’t deny the fact that some of the technologies mentioned here didn’t last and that is for the very same reason that we as humans are constantly innovating and creating new ideas and techs. They were revolutionary at that time and I will not argue with anyone whether you will admit it or not. What Sony has achieved with their mirrorless e-mount cameras are something we haven’t seen before and to those who think that these are just gimmicks, I don’t need to convince you all. Enjoy what camera you’ve got while I enjoy the latest techs I can do with mine to make photography enjoyable for me. Stay and be complacent with your own system if you are happy while I applaud Sony for giving us alpha users products that are revolutionary and fun to use.

The Fat Fish: Top specs and top quality images. Nice work Sony.

Indeed! I just pre-ordered one as a back-up to my A7rIII.

....and then two weeks later the headline on DPR will be:

Sony a9r announced with mega bombastic features

....and then a month later:

Sony A7s III just announced with quintillion ISO sensitivity

ScanSpeak: I’ve have been interested in a Sony to purchase but this camera has changed that.

What ever camera you are using now, you will never go back once you’ve used one of these new Sony FF cameras....it’s an absolute joy to use with lots of amazing techs and of course, superb image quality. My new A7riii is simply phenomenal.
