Sony a7 III Review

Announced Feb 27, 2018 •
24 megapixels | 3 screen | Full frame sensor
dpreview conclusion

The Sony a7 III is a well-priced, well-rounded camera suitable for all kinds of photography. Twenty-four megapixels of resolution is more than sufficient for most tasks, and the 693-point autofocus system and 10 frames-per-second burst speed help the a7 III keep up with fast action. Video quality and feature set is another strong point, though some operational lag, a slightly low-resolution viewfinder and unintuitive video autofocus may turn off some users.

Good for

Generalist photographers, wedding, event and action shooters and those that need high quality video.

Not so good for

Those that need more resolution for detailed scenes or large prints, those that need ultimate build quality for harsh shooting conditions.
