And I cannot wait till it gets here Monday!

Stopped in my local camera shop to shoot the shit with the guys there. They had an A7RIII on hand.

I razzed them and said "What!? No A7III's!?" Fully expecting to hear a nope.

He says. Sold it this morning. But our other store has one that has your name on it if you want it.

And out came the wallet.

You know I will!

I was torn between a Sony 100-400 and this. This it is.

I CANT WAIT!



I guess I will just have to play with my A7II for the time being.

I was sitting on my porch sniping aircraft this morning with my 7II and daydreaming about the new camera.

Looked at the specs, wow. Sure makes the F717 I had look like stone age.

Congratulations.

Let us know how it does.

Quick shot out my front door with the A7III.

I feel your pain.

I bought a refurb canon eos-1 Dx Mark II from canon a couple weeks ago and haven’t had time to play yet.

Good to see some other Sony shooters! I thought I might be the only one here.

Bump.

Hey OP how do you like the A7iii over the A7ii? I know the specs are better but how does it stack up to the previous model?

I'm looking at buying my first Sony A7 model and can't decide if I should go with the late model or cry once and spend the extra money on the new model. For reference I'll be shooting mostly landscape and some semi portrait. Also looking at the Sony 16-35 f4 lens.

Edit: Well I couldn't wait and decided on the A7iii. Excited about getting rid of my big DSLR and getting the Sony in my hands!

LOL!

You will absolutely not be disappointed in the A7III. It blows my A7II out of the water in terms of auto focus speed and coverage.

I was honestly a little disappointed in the 7II at first for what I do with them. But with some tinkering I have the 7II working very well.

For landscaping and portraiture you will be happy.

This is an A7II shot.


And an a7III shot.


Both using the Tamron 150-600 first gen lens with the LA-EA3 adapter.

IIRC this was the absolute first shot with the 7III when I got it home.


I like your lens choice!
