Pros: customization, eye tracking, face tracking, very complete menu, iso seal, raw quality and workability.

Cons: AF with low light, AF in backlight, quality of the crosshairs, limited lcd movement, Sony lens price, with wide-angle lenses does not seem to me to be able to focus easily.

Opinion: I switched to Sony selling my Nikon kit, and having already purchased and made the Z6. it was a suffered passage and a decision that took a long time. The A7III has merits and defects, let's start from the merits: remarkable raw file quality, very good shadow opening possibilities, I have two Sigma Art lenses and it seems to me that the files are already great even before touching them in the post, very customizable braketing possibilities, virtually total key customization, which allows you to do everything without ever getting into the menus. The iso seal is very good, it is a fast machine, suitable for many genres. The menu contrary to what many say in my opinion is very complete (I use it in English), allows you to customize each key and also to save set of settings that can be called up with a single button. You can set the machine so that you have different focus modes that can be called up with a key. There are great tutorials on youtube to study the menu in detail, which I recommend you do first. As a focus is a monster with af eye and face tracking, and also as a single subject chase. Today there is a slow park more than discreet, and accessories of various types of various brands. Now I start with the cons: the AF in low light and backlight is bad, much worse than the reflexes I used before, for me it's a big problem and I did not expect it honestly, I hope they can improve via firmware, this thing disappointed me a lot. Another problem to me seems to me that with wide-angle lenses does not focus practically anything that is not close and in the center, with subjects far away to me it seems that just does not see anything with an AF mode to chase. Another focus problem, the lock on AF only works in some modes and I don't think it's possible to switch from a spot mode to the AF lock without switching from the focus mode menu, which is cumbersome and slow. AF-C tracking modes all work poorly when there is a dark subject on a light background. the viewfinder is mediocre as quality and in low light conditions happens to present lag, although it is not something that bothers me too much. the lcd is only oriented in landscape mode, I shooting so much portrait I would have liked to have the lcd oriented even vertically. It lacks the focus stacking that in my opinion on such a technological and expensive machine can not miss. I would have preferred fewer AF modes, but more performing, it seems to me that there are a lot of AF modes that are too similar, difficult to choose and/or activate at the right time. The machine is infallible for portraiture and probably also for individual objects in motion, it seems to me that on the contrary it has difficulty to focus on everything else (in continuous AF). The slow park is discreet but generally at a bit of excessive prices, fortunately the Sigma are great and at high prices, but normal, Sony and Zeiss lenses to me seem offered at excessive prices. As ergonomics the dials are too hard and too cashed. Missing the visor at the top on the body that I used to adjust with the exposure, here you are forced to look in the viewfinder to see the display that I find uncomfortable. The clearing dial, shooting only in manual for me is a waste of space, I would have preferred the viewer in its place. I am still satisfied with the purchase in general, but honestly for the focus in continuous I expected much more, especially reading the reviews.

Pros: Sensor, burst, AF, EYE AF, all customizable, lightweight, endless lens park, Joystick

Cons: Scope could be better, ibis improveable, weather tracking, slow ignition, lack of switch on the body

Opinion: It's a great machine, it's an entry level only in the name: joystick, double slot, large and sufficient viewfinder (although not excellent), good burst, endless buffer, great AF, eye AF prodigious, a sensor that tolerates everything, but has its beautiful flaws. For example tracking is far from real time tracking that came out shortly after, the various AF areas are not modifiable, the shutter if left in full mechanical some vibration the da, the AF is great but suffers a little low lights, lacks the switch AF/AFC/MF and drive, in ignition if it takes comfortable with 2 seconds full, while emptying the buffer the menu is blocked and the ices are improved... Many but small things on which other brands take care of the details... But when you use it is a means of war, very fast and reliable, according to DXO is the best FF in ISO resistance, it can do any kind of photographic, the lenses of the system are exterminated and practically all very good, on the other hand they are new conception, there are real pearls even on the third parties. The battery lasts a lifetime, when it hooks the human or animal subject no longer loses it, besides they are the only ones who have realized that giving this function to a key is much better, it activates only when it is needed. I consider it a camera for capable people, who know what they want, it is a moment to profile on C1/LR (Raamiel) and it is not instinctive to use, you have to remember the functions and what you have assigned to the keys, need to say that there are valuable glasses, take it with ciffoni does not make sense, buy an economic APSC otherwise, it is always a means of almost 2 thousand euros and it is worth them.

Pros: versatility, sensor, AF

Cons: menu, lack of ML functionality

Opinion: I have been using it for a few months, I have not become a "Sony fun boy", I try to maintain objectivity and while considering it a great machine, extraordinarily versatile in almost all photographic genres, sensor and AF fantastic, I check several shortcomings between ML features (focus stacking, time lapse, double exposure in the room). It is likely that for many they are unimportant but they are often present on the bodies of other brands, and here you feel the lack of them...like the charger... I don't say anything about the menu because it's like shooting on the red cross...

Pros: Sensor quality, raws, endless retrievals on shadows, convenience and speed

Cons: suffers darn hot pixels even for photos of 15-20 seconds of exposure, no screen totally basculable and not very sharp, missing the charger

Opinion: After over a year of use I can say that it is really a great machine. I came from Canon 6D mark II but after a while it started to sit a little tight because of the poor workability of the files especially on the recovery of shadows. I made this leap into the dark thinking about it over a month, but the feeling was immediate, never misses a shot, burst and autofocus top. Like all things also has some defects of which in my opinion very serious, namely the presence of hot pixels raising ISO due to overheating probably due to bad cooling, which has been solved for example on the A7rIV. The screen has a low resolution and the live view has mostly in low light grain of very big noise, but in the end then you churn out the perfect file and so do not give us weight. If with the arrival of the A7IV they improved the cooling and quality of the viewfinder and screen and who knows, maybe even get to 30mpx would be fantastic. I have always been a canonist, but in the end I am very satisfied and I would never go back, because especially in landscape photos the dynamic range that Sony offers is scary. I wait for the 7IV curious to see if they will have improved the defects (given what it costs to buy it)

Pros: body quality, customization, value for money

Cons: there's no battery charger

Opinion: I say: use for amateur purposes: travel, family/friends outings, excursions. I sold my Nikon D5100, I decided to make myself this gift for my next trips (waiting for the end of this pandemic). I went against the current and I did not listen even to those who said that the menus were complicated, I took it import with purely English menu. First of all, the feeling of solidity and quality that from the machine body is truly amazing. To start taking pictures by setting something you do not necessarily need to follow instructions or tutorials, but by doing so you can fine-tune a number of useful and sufficient functions to start shooting. The image quality is really superb, changing isO takes photos even in low light conditions without affecting the image quality that is always recoverable even in PP (I'm using capture one) which with nikon was not always feasible. Multiple customizations allow you to "sew" your camera to your liking, so you have everything at your fingertips. The features are the most disparate and I think you can make full use of it only after a long time and a lot of use in the most different situations. I bought it in pair with a 24-105 sony and I'm really excited about it. Perhaps an external battery charge would have made charging easier, too bad you missed this one detail which is in my opinion the only downside in this purchase. The ergonomics are good, I have big hands but not very big and I fit in with a brush. The autofocus is really amazing and in all its functions it does not miss a beat. The expense is not indifferent but if you want to save it on import it is not a drama from a linguistic point of view (if you chew a little technical English) you are of little interest in the guarantee speech if you accept the very low (in my opinion) risk of having to need one day.
