    Amazing Capabilities Reasonable Price

    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 is nothing 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 did not 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.

    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 purchased the A7iii as an affordable second body to my A7riii. Now I find I’m reaching for it a often as the other. Same great features and and in most cases the 24 mp is more than enough. Only negative, Sony doesn’t include a battery charger. Only reason I didn’t give 5 stars.

    It’s my first pro camera but I don’t think I will need to buy another one for a while. It’s kinda expensive but worth it. It has so many functions and options. I feel as if they should have a three week class on how to use it.

    Sony needs to release an update to fix the memory card issue, i love the camera but for it to be so new, and so pricey i should have zero issues out of box!
