Pros: Autofocus great, many and infinite possibilities of adjustment, image quality, high iso hold, favorable price quality ratio.

Cons: i don't like evf, the dedicated optics are more expensive than the reflex analoges,

Opinion: It's the infinite camera. in the sense that every time I use it I always discover something new, something that helps me and that surprises me! The menu is very complete, I left it in English and I feel great. the body fits perfectly to those who have medium or small hands, personally I had only the difficulty in getting used to removing and putting the optics, the dx unlock keys of the vent and a certain hardness in rotating the lens (at least compared to canon) have me forced to have to study a series of gestures to which I was not accustomed. The yield of this sensor is amazing, its 24 mp is enough and they advance for those like me who do not make gigantographies... I do very few crop and I'm not interested in viewing photos at 200% to see if the pixels are in their place... The prints that come out of it are divine, there is not really the panzana of colors. I always had Canon, and the best of them is the 1Ds MkIII. With this Sony (and of course the right color profile) I can get a photo printed almost indistinguishable from those made with Canon... but with the undeniable advantage of having many iso and a futuristic autofocus. I'm a little stressed about the evf crosshairs, I don't like it. If I have to take a picture quickly I have to tap a button to "wake up" the camera... I know that in the more expensive models is better, even the One of the Eos R is better (I owned one) but in the end I made the jump... I sold almost everything and switched to Sony. With a good dose of calm and a good dose of time to look for good opportunities, in the used you will find everything. The price to make a set comes at an important cost. I'm sorry I left Canon, when I see a lens with the red line I still think back to the ones I had... but the technology goes this way, Canikon have lost the train... who knows if they will be able to mend the accumulated disadvantage.

Pros: It's just perfect

Cons: It's addictive and the need to find them by force of defects

Opinion: I use it at work to shoot videos but also for ceremonial photography and events and it's amazing. Since I went from reflex to mirrorless, a world has opened up. This machine has a monstrous versatility, an incredible reliability, gives you a freedom in properly exposing absurd and even if you make a mistake forgives a lot. The autofocus is accurate and fast based on the optics you use. Eye face tracking works, sometimes with a lot of people stupid, but if you want to take a portrait of a couple or a single, you crush the programmed button and hook in a nanosecond, and you really don't miss the moment. You can costume it the way you want to sew it on yourself, much more than the eos r and nikon z. It has double backup slots and only professional machines need to have it, the others... Z and R are not sorry. Which mentally ill person would go to a wedding by entrusting all his work to a single card albeit reliable and fast xqd? It also has the electronic silent snap and you don't hear a fly flying, it has the liview setting for flash use. It's an all-round machine really , in the video field makes footage of the Madonna, a soft and precise autofocus, other than dual pixels , holds up well the high iso, up to 12000 (which you want more) in pairs with a sony a7riii and two or three fixed optics is a lot of stuff. Currently the only flaw of this room is in the scope of photos a larger body and a better ergonomics while in video 4k 60 fps (which I do not use) and only 100 fps on fullhd (which are enough for what I do) is one of the most mirrorless sold at the moment but I would say with merit , I was pleasantly surprised.

Pros: Mature, Autofocus, ISO Hold, Gust and overflowing buffer, Commands and wheels customizable in more than sufficient quantities, Clutter, Silent Shot, Full compatibility with Techart pro.

Cons: Cover usb contact really ridiculous, Ergonomics to the Limit, Limited Touch, Addiction.

Opinion: I will not say that I come from Nikon because I have no intention of leaving the reflex world of which I have a decent well-assorted and quality kit but damn, this camera just lacks the word. I'm not a video maker so on the video side I can't express myself and I understand very little while for photography I feel I can say that I find myself in my hands a complete and mature tool, I even struggle to understand how it can be improved further a camera like that. Probably the electronic viewfinder is something to raise the bar on but personally I find it sufficient and functional. Where I was particularly astounded and it is also the main reason why I decided to take it, is the use in combination with the Techart Pro that made me put back in the bag very good vintage glass between whose features stand out the compactness that enhances its compactness Mirrorless philosophy. I already see myself as a client of Voigtlinder and thanks to the focus aids and Techart himself I promise this little one not to give him any glass beyond the 1.8 brightness. If she really deserves it, I finally deserve it I do not take precious seconds to the mind committed to composing, as it really must be when in your hand you have a MACCHINA that shows you the preview of your visions and does the MACCHINA in the best possible way that is , taking care of all that is not photography. At Sony, however, they thought that such a well-made machine had to have something to bring it back to earth and at that point they thought they would find the right gadget to remind their customers of their history as home appliance manufacturers. You needed something that would make you snoose often, say every time you charge it or connect it to the PC and then came the TAPPO of the usb port. With an Arca Swiss bracket mounted on the base it becomes almost impossible to insert the cable. These impressions of use in the first month of use, in case I will update the review.

Pros: Holding high ISO outstanding-burst-AF-4K Video-Focus peaking-silent but just silent shooting:-)

Cons: Enough viewfinder, slightly adjustable screen and little touch, complex menus

Opinion: I've had it for about 3 months. After so many years spent with the 6d I made this passage not painless. Many, lots of advantages but with the Canon I was so good that I'm holding both. What about it? More or less what you read on the net in the reviews balanced leaving the detractors for the party taken and the fanboys. The A7 III is an exceptional machine but it is not perfect (I don't think they exist). Excellent high ISO and AF system (especially with lenses produced for you). Many small things make it complete and improve its usability: Focus peaking (really good for shooting with the manual focus), automatic zoom that assists you when you focus, ring for the flight correction of the exposure, many buttons Customizable, battery of excellent durability and loadable on the fly with Powerbank...... A big, great advantage, is to see in real time how the parameters gradually set will affect the photo as for example in the long exposures (not in bulb). The defects are those known: the viewfinder is not bad but it is not comparable to a pentaprism, the menus are too complex and the translation into Italian for some voices is ridiculous, indeed the term more guessed is "imaginative", the screen can be oriented but the convenience of a ver o swivel screen is a whole other stuff, in some cases (sporadic) The silent shot produces horizontal lines in the photo and deforms the vertical structures. Separate chapters for Is, park objectives, AF and use of adapters I start with the stabilizer. Very personal opinion tainted probably by my experience nothing with stabilized bodies. Discreet but not more. I have always snapped with the 6d and stabilised lenses (except the wide angles but at 12mm being out of the safe times is difficult) and in my opinion with 6d and 24 70 is F4 I could push myself more than with A7 III and Tamron 28-75. Park goals: It moves quickly and is in sharp growth but some lenses are back compared to Canon and really good ones cost really much. Beware the Canon does not give them, they are expensive there too, but with the possibility of taking some good lens at more affordable price. Some tests I could do others I read them on the net and many confirm what I say. The Canon 16 35 F4 is superior (not in all but in many respects) to the Sony counterpart. Same story for the 70-200 F4 and the 85 (those accessible at human prices. AF: valid, very valuable. Shoot 3500 photos with Tamron 28-75 in the theater during dance essays and will have blew in 4-5 photos. But there is one though:-): there are many but many options and to be sure to use the one most suitable for every circumstance is not easy. It is not a defect but who is used to recompose with the central (as only option or almost) can remain displaced. Using adapters: Personal experience limited to photos (in video there is no tracking so you lose the true added value of Sony). Mc 11 and Canon 24 70 F4, 70-200 F4, 35 F2 Is, Sigma 105 Macro and 12 24 (both not art), for all experience identical to that lived for years with the Canon. The hesitation that sometimes matched there were also paired with the Canon. I hope I haven't bored you and helped someone.

Pros: AF-C, battery that on ML is finally worthy of this name, high ISO hold, stabilizer, fullframe in a contained body

Cons: Non-immediate menu that takes some time to be understood, outrageous viewfinder, crappy LCD, raw files to work heavily, sensor that gets dirty even without changing optics, cost of Sony optics greater than the competition, lack timer in Pose B

Opinion: I changed camera often because in each I found some things that made me twist my nose (the best experiences anyway with Canon and Fujifilm) and, driven by the enthusiasm of dozens of owners of this machine and the problems of F/B focus that I have encountered With Tamron lenses on Nikon D750, I decided to return to ML in the hope of abandoning this type of problem. Mission successful? Undoubtedly yes, but now the problems are others. Firstly, having had the X-T2 Fuji, the first thing I noticed is the viewfinder and the LCD decidedly poor, which do not allow you to work well in the sun. There is no contrast to the focus point and under the sun you have to press the shutter button halfway to get it to color (only green) to figure out where it went to finish. The feeling is that you have a machine in hand technologically excellent, but not completely mature. In fact in the experience of use are many things that sooner or later, even for a few moments, we will be perplexed (such as during a night session, I discovered that during the pose B the screen remains black without even a timer to indicate the time Elapsed, with the need therefore to resort to the cellphone to have an external timer). The raw files in my opinion have a flat yield: the colors are different from other brands, very modern in the surrender (from this point of view for me the Canon files remain the best), the information goes strong in the shadows, decidedly less in the high lights where you present the Lim More obvious iti. In general, the starting files (Jpeg, RAW) are never particularly satisfactory and you have to put your hand to good in post to pull out something good. The AF-S since I own it don't use it anymore, because it's not as fast and accurate as the AF-C. The keys on the body are well arranged and with an additional grip improves the ergonomics. The Sony optics are well built, but have much higher prices than the competition and this makes it almost impossible to have a kit of optics 1.4 or 2.8, unless you have great economic possibilities. From this point of view you feel limited and often you have to tack on the market of used and third-party optics (Sigma, Tamron, and Samyang that is doing a good job). Who will read this review advice to try the car before falling on this model only by virtue of what is read online, with opinions of enthusiastic only because they chose the brand X rather than Y. I would like to give a vote of 8.5/10 at the A7 III , because despite high ISO and AF-C is perhaps the best mirrorless on the market, still lacks something and does not return a user-experience to me fully satisfactory. A positive mention to the battery, which really lasts a lot and seems inexhaustible, to the ISO that are a stop over the D750, to the body not very heavy and to Sony for having distorted the market of mirrorless cameras, bringing the competition to have to revise the Own programs. For those who still have doubts I would like to say that anyway, the future is mirrorless. Who is preparing to make a kit ex-Novo, has today a wide choice with Nikon, Canon, Fujifilm (user-experience beautiful, machines and optical compartment of level with contained dimensions and performance for many comparable uses) etc., then move to Sony for the world Mirrorless today makes less sense than in the past. Considering that on Nikon with an adapter you can keep the optics or adapt so many others at low prices, must reflect at least in part before choosing Sony a priori.
