    I was debating between the Sony A7riii and this one: A7iii...my biggest issue was the large file size with the a7riii. I'm glad I got this one instead, they are both so similar anyways. If you're looking for the high megapixel which is amazing for printing purposes, then you might wanna get the A7riii.

    Couldn't be happier with my A7iii!

    At this point, I have had the A7iii for a couple months now and have clicked roughly 3000 images - mainly of family, pets, and my 6 months old babygirl. I can honestly say that these are some of the best images I have ever clicked and that this camera has helped elevate my photography to a whole new level. I would recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat! A little background and more details... I had been a dedicated Canon user for 10+ years with 70D (APS-C sensor) for my last camera. Unfortunately that camera had front and back focusing issues even though I had micro-adjusted all my lenses to it. I was so used to clicking 3-4 extra images for those can't-miss moments just to be sure one of them was a keeper. Earlier this year, I decided to go full-frame and lucky for me, Sony had just announced the A7iii with features that were years ahead of anything Canon/Nikon had to offer at similar price point. After weeks of reading rave reviews from pros and amateurs alike, I pulled the trigger and ordered my A7iii along with the 24-70GM lens. After 2 months of using Sony gear, I couldn't be happier with my move. Here are a few pros and cons that you may not find in other reviews. Pros: - Eye AF: The hype is real! The Eye AF works (90% of the time) incredibly well and makes it super easy to take portraits. With it on, most pictures are so razor-sharp that I can zoom into the eyes of the subject and find my own reflection. And that's not an exaggeration! - Excellent Low-light capability: On my Canon, I rarely pushed past 1000 ISO because of high noise in low-light images. With A7iii, I haven't purchased a flash yet so I am regularly forced to shoot in 10,000 - 12,500 range and the images still looking stunning after processing. - Less time in post-processing: Compared to 70D, I find that less of my images need post-processing now and the ones I do have to process take less time. - File size: At one point, I was seriously considering the A7(R)iii but now I am glad that I chose this camera. The 50MB files (uncompressed RAW) from this camera already make my 2014 Macbook Pro feel slightly sluggish. Can't imagine what 80-90MB files from A7Riii would have done to my computer. Cons: - Sony software is worthless: the RAW processing software installed 3 different apps - a photo manager, an editor and a remote shooting app. I found the apps a pain to use so ended up uninstalling after the first week and purchased Capture One Pro. - No built-in flash: I personally miss having a built-in flash. In most low-light situations, I could take out my 70D from the bag and start snapping in seconds. I don't own an external flash for A7iii but past experience tells me it will definitely take longer to get snapping when I have to attach an external flash. With all that said, I still rate this camera a solid 5 stars because of the incredible difference it has already made in my photos.
