Sony a7 III Review

The Sony a7 III is a well-priced, well-rounded camera suitable for all kinds of photography. Twenty-four megapixels of resolution is more than sufficient for most tasks, and the 693-point autofocus system and 10 frames-per-second burst speed help the a7 III keep up with fast action. Video quality and feature set is another strong point, though some operational lag, a slightly low-resolution viewfinder and unintuitive video autofocus may turn off some users.

Sony A7 III review

The A7 III hardly puts a foot wrong. Its specifications make it a terrific all-rounder, one that's so powerful its price is actually a bit of a surprise. Its handling and control layout aren't perfect, and other cameras might grab the headlines in one area or another, but few are so consistently capable across such a wide range of disciplines. What a great camera!

Sony Alpha A7 III review

The Alpha A7 III is a brilliant camera that ticks a lot of boxes for many photographers. Sony has taken some of the best bits from its flagship Alpha A9 and A7R III, and distilled them into a single camera that offers a fantastic mix of performance and image quality. For the price, there's nothing that can touch it.

Sony A7 III review: A peerless full-frame mirrorless camera

Sony’s 24.2-megapixel A7 III is a near-perfect all-around mirrorless camera. You can fire bursts at 10 fps, capture sharp images with excellent dynamic range day or night, and autofocus accurately on fast-moving subjects or portraits. It also handles very well and captures the sharpest 4K video of any full-frame mirrorless camera on the market, except for Sony’s much more costly A9. It’s not perfect, as the viewfinder and EVF are less sharp than rival models. Overall, however, it’s the best $2,000 camera you can buy and arguably the best on the market, period.

SONY A7 III AND A7R III REVIEW: MIRRORLESS MAGIC

Ultimately, you can have fantastic all-around performance with the A7 III or megapixel overkill with the A7R III. Both are great cameras, but one is far more suitable for the niche of professionals who specialize in detail-oriented photography, while the other is going to be on many new photographer’s wishlists.

Sony A7 III Review

With its powerful 24 MP sensor, compact dimensions, much-improved handling and customization, amazingly quick and accurate autofocus system, large battery capacity, native 4K video recording, and great sub-$2K price, the A7 III is the most well-rounded mirrorless camera on the market today and receives our highest recommendation.

Sony A7 III Review

The Sony A7 III is quite simply the best camera available at its price-point. It's good enough to tempt some people to stretch their budget further, and even good enough for some to save money by not having to look higher up the range. It may be "basic" in its current positioning at the bottom of the Sony full-frame line-up, but it's definitely outstanding in all other regards.

Sony A7 III Review

the Sony A7 III has an extensive features set and is a great all-rounder. Given that the Sony A7 III is pitched at the same audience as the 6D Mark II, Canon should be worried.

Review: Sony a7 III

This is a camera for the entry level photographer that wants a full frame option. You’d use it for leisure and maybe a bit of semi-professional work. But for specialized work, I think you should look at the other options out there.
