Now that's it's officially announced, we can share more juicy details about Nikon's latest lens, the 400mm F4.5 VR telephoto.
Despite its billing as a 'basic' model, the Sony a7 III is a supremely capable full frame camera. Though it doesn't have the most megapixels or shoot the fastest bursts, its well-judged mix of resolution, speed, features and price point make it an easy recommendation for all kinds of photographers and all kinds of photography.
Compared to its predecessor, the Sony a7 III has been updated in almost every way; when compared to other similarly priced full frame options, the a7 III looks to be a cut above in many respects. For generalist photographers, wedding and event shooters and even sports specialists, the a7 III gets an awful lot of things just right. But as with previous Sony mirrorless full-frame cameras, there are some foibles that persist with this new model.
We've now spent dozens of hours shooting the a7 III in our studio and out in the real world - read on to see how it performs.
Take a look at the key spec differences between the Sony a7 III and its predecessor and how it compares to existing models from other companies.
Most of Sony's (positive) ergo changes in other recent cameras have found their way to the a7 III, but there's been some cost-cutting along the way.
We've gone beyond the spec sheet to discuss how the Sony a7 III performs in a wide variety of situations, from landscapes to weddings.
From our lab and real-world testing, we've found the Sony a7 III is capable of excellent image quality - with one or two exceptions.
The autofocus system in the Sony a7 III is lifted from the company's advanced a9 pro sports model, and in short, it rocks.
Despite its relatively affordable price point, the Sony a7 III is one of Sony's most capable interchangeable lens cameras for video to date.
