Pros: Dynamic range, battery life

Cons: AF, high ISO hold

Opinion: I came from a d810 and I was looking for a camera that would give me the opportunity to range from landscape to naturalistic, so I decided to buy this model. I must say that expectations were high, especially since it was a Sony, a brand famous for the AF performance of its models. In this case, however, already after the first outings for naturalistic (especially birdlife) I realized that I had made a mistake. The AF is very slow, but the camera's operating times are even slower. The motion blur is always present and the evf does not work live but with a delay of at least one second. It is better if you use it on a tripod, from a shed, deactivating tracking and using only the af-c with the animal eye recognition function. Another weak point is the Iso. Above 3200 in low light conditions, an annoying chroma noise is produced. Sometimes even at low iso it produces noise. I would define it as a tripod camera, both for landscapes and for naturalistic. On the plus side, it has a great dynamic range that allows you to recover well by choosing the optimal exposure. Another positive aspect is the battery life, which is really good. In summary, I would say: EXCELLENT for landscapes, GOOD for naturalistic on static fauna, VERY BAD for birdlife.

Pros: Image quality, build, battery life. A gem also in 2023.

Cons: Increased size compared to the second generation

Opinion: Coming from the A7RII, compared to this the A7RIII-A has more: -file a little cleaner, less noisy -AF system faster, more accurate, more sensitive, tracking and Eye AF much further forward -burst shutter and buffer much better. You can take action photos. It's not an A9, but you can. -battery life, double or more -EVF seems improved to me, already for me it was excellent that of the RII -rear screen certainly better and touch -better white balance and with more options -more features such as pixel shift and possibility of wireless connection and others -USB C -greater possibilities of customization menus and keys -better build quality. Looks more solid -overall operating speed is improved -14bit even in silent shooting! It is used very well, as long as the subjects are not in rapid motion, otherwise rolling shutter is visible. °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° As proof of how subjective ergonomics is, I preferred the slimmer A7RII. Oh well, I can stay, but I preferred smaller. -the A7RII file immediately appeared a little, perhaps, marginally more detailed. In the III it is cleaner, but the impression is that the one in the II was rougher and rawer, the one in the III more elaborate. These are impressions, but I wanted to say it. -Stabilizer looks the same to me

Pros: Image quality, file maneuverability, customization, construction

Cons: Ineffective sensor stabilizer, ISO sealing, shake and of course the menu

Opinion: After years of indecision, on the occasion of the last trip, I decided to return to full frame and the choice fell on this A7RIII(A). I was looking for one thing: image quality. All "modern" technological ammennicles do not interest me. Camera in my opinion built very well, solid and comfortable. It begins to have its years but has nothing to envy to the most modern evolutions, always talking about pure IQ. The generated file is of a crazy elasticity and allows things unthinkable for other cameras. Clearly the weight of the single raw uncompressed is not indifferent but these are things that are already known before buying such a machine. At the iso level I expected a little better, if you want you can pull the neck up to 6400 but we are at the limit in my opinion (and despite all the file remains maneuverable, which is unthinkable for my old apsc) but we are still talking about a very dense sensor. The menus are endless and obviously incomprehensible as per Sony tradition but once mastered you can sew the camera on you and after a long time, I am satisfied with the setting I found. I noticed great ease in generating shake, you have to be very careful. Speaking of the ibis I'm finding it really superfluous. I know that they are not the latest versions but from a first evolution, however, something I expected, instead nothing. Photo shakes at 2-300mm even with super safe times (1/500+) and here I refer to the speech of the shake of before. I really like the viewfinder and it is well readable, I started shooting again from the eyepiece that instead I had completely abandoned on the previous camera (I noticed there is an annoying bug with the switch automatically: sometimes it changes by itself even if there is nothing near the sensor, it is probably too sensitive). You have to get used to the output on the LCD and what is actually the photo on the PC because unlike the usual, the photos seem a bit 'dull on the screen (viewfinder already better), making a direct comparison in the field with Canon R5 the comparison is unequal, Canon in practice already makes you see the post-produced photo in a super saturated display while with this RIII on the field I have always remained a bit 'with doubt about The final result, which then at the PC there is all right. Needless to say, it must be associated with top-level optics. For now I'm having a great time and it perfectly reflects what I was looking for. Rating: 9.

Pros: Crop, rings, dynamic range, customizable keys, battery, materials

Cons: Single AF, ergonomics and grip, menu, touchscreen, ISO, display, 42mpx

Opinion: I will only talk about the cons, as the Pros are too numerous and we already know them all. Used for 2 seasons coupled with a 24-70 ART. It's not my car. I come from an EOS R and I must say that in terms of usability, ergonomics and usability in general there is an abyss. The Sony is very complex and so rich in functions to study in depth that I want to take it in hand. I'm used to Canon and whenever I need any function I know exactly where to go to look for it. The AF-S struggles to focus even in medium light conditions - the focus point on the display is almost invisible - given the density of the sensor at iso 800 begins to appear the noise of brightness - while the AF-C module that works well is really so articulated and complex - ergonomics intended as a handle I found it very uncomfortable. I find the images of this 42mpx sensor really too sharp and rich in detail .. In short, those who like detail and crunchiness, this camera performs an x-ray of what you have in front of your eyes and also allows discreet recoveries in post production. The greatest discomfort that I emphasize is however the grip, which is the most important thing from which you immediately understand the feeling you can have with your travel companion. As for me I pick up my Canon !

Pros: Image quality likely to be at the top even in 2023, incredible dynamic range, construction and EVF compared to A7III, battery

Cons: Menu, disastrous operational slowness and fairly uncertain AF with little light and/or contrast

Opinion: I bought the Riii coming from two smooth A7iii. I was disgusted by the poor quality of viewfinder and display of the smooth version and I looked for improvements in this one. I had it especially EVF side, while the display reaches a "discreet" level but certainly not great. Compared to the smooth version, however, you immediately notice a much better construction, more metal, more insulation, more pronounced keys and more precise rings in the shots. It was a really good step forward. Image quality side the speech is the same. The sensor of the R churns out incredible files, with a crazy dynamic range and a much less "digital" detail than the A7iii. ISO hold for me is identical or even better in the R, scaling to 24mpx up to 3200/5000. Beyond I do not go and even the A7 at 6400 was K.O. without mixing the images with noise reduction. Where I noticed worsening was the Autofocus. It is slower than smooth, hooks less quickly especially with low light and / or contrast. But still advanced to the point that if you can not bring home a result, excluding the photo hunt, probably the problem lies behind the camera. Operating speed between ignition, menu and shooting? As ridiculous as the A7iii, compared to any other camera brand. To give you an idea, any of these timelines are 2 times slower than a 2012 Canon 6D and almost 3 times slower than the Eos R, Fuji X-T4, XH-2. In conclusion, if the experience of using Sony does not disturb you, for me it remains an absolute best buy in 2023 compared to the A7iii and considering that you take it home from 1500 euros down. Try to do better in equal numbers. ;)
