    The eye focus on this camera is absolutely stunning. It does a great job at keeping the models in focus.

    I've been using my camera for 2 months now, and even took it on my trip to Hawaii. This full frame camera is packed with power (I love the battery life--one pack for the day) and the body is strong enough to withstand my travel in the rainforests of Hawaii. Photo quality is beautiful...and when it comes to low light, this camera works so well. I basically have the power of the A7Riii but for a cheaper price and less megapixels.

    I love this camera. I love it for photos and video. I love it for everything it does. 2 SD card slots with 1 slot being SII speeds which is amazing. It does beautiful photos and beautful video and I haven't had the first problem. This camera is super worth it. I was going to get a sony a6500 but for the price this camera is worth stepping up. It's not just a basic model it's fantastic and fully professional grade. If someone is looking for their first camera and can spend some money or a seasoned pro wanting another camera body then GET THIS! .....unless you want the more expensive version that does 42MP files. I'm happy with it and I love it and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

    Finally made the swap from Nikon to Sony and holy cow... I knew from the specs list that this would fit my needs, but it's out-performed all of my expectations. I'm enamored with it and can hardly put it down. No complaints on my end! Fully customizable, 120 fps, 4k internal. Solid build all around.

    Great Image Quality / Poor Ergonomics & UI

    This is a hard camera for me to review. I like it a lot but it has some minor issues that hold it back from being awesome in my opinion. The image quality and auto focus are great for the style of shooting I prefer. I generally shoot studio and location portraits. However, the camera ergonomics and user interface feel like someone that has never used a camera before designed them. Expect to buy a battery charger at an additional $88 because the camera does not come with one. The in-body USB battery charging is painfully slow. Other than that, the camera is fine and a solid 4 out of 5 stars.

    I've been using Sony Cybershots for many years and just upgraded to the a7iii. And what a jump that was. The a7iii menu system is super dense and can seem overwhelming at first, but the level of condigurability is typical for Sony. The autofocus is crazy fast, and just recently Sony released animal-eye detection in a firmware update, so now taking perfect photos of your cats and dogs is so much easier. In addition, with that update, the long elusive time lapse function has returned to the a series. The a7iii is a powerful tool in a small mirrorless design. It's relatively small compared to dslrs, so much so that others have said it's too small to grip. But it's perfect for me, because I've got small hands! All in all, I'm so happy with this upgrade.

    This is A7iii is my second Sony camera. My other Sony is A77II. As much as I have enjoyed that camera it isn't even in the same realm. The images this camera produces are beautiful. I find the camera to be very user friendly with the exception of the menu system. I watched several videos on how to use/set the menu up and although those few hours were a bit dry did help me become confident in using the DEEP menu structure. The A7iii ability to gather light isn'thing less than spectacular. The auto focus is as close to instantiations as seems possible as well as very accurate. I have not shot any video with it yet, so I will leave those functions to others to comment on. The body is a bit small for my hands especially when paired with the 24-70 2.8 GM lens which is my only lens as this time. I felt the need to purchase a third party grip right away since I didn't feel very confidant in the grip I had with the enormous lens. The ability to set custom functions to several buttons makes many common tasks easy. I do miss the fully articulating screen of my other camera but I usually use the EVF anyway. The A7iii and A7Riii both have some firmware issues at the time of this review which have caused me to be unable to view pictures I have taken in camera. Yes that is frustrating but having read several articles I believe Sony will be releasing a Firmware update in the next week or two which will fix this bug. This is the sole reason I didn't give this camera a 5 star review. The lack of an included dedicated charger, while annoying was not a major issue for me since I knew about it before purchasing my camera so ordered a charger at the same time. The menu structure while very DEEP allows a lot of customization which I appreciate. This camera allows the user to create their own menu for the settings which one most frequently uses and that is brilliant! I was disappointed Sony didn't include a PC sync port on this camera but the Sony wireless adapter has one on it, so not a major problem. The battery life is better than any camera I have ever had including several Cannons I had before switching to Sony. All in all I am very happy with this camera and encourage anyone on the fence to give this wonder a shot.
