“Despite its billing as a ‘basic’ model, the Sony a7 III is a supremely capable full frame camera. Though it doesn’t have the most megapixels or shoot the fastest bursts, its well-judged mix of resolution, speed, features and price point make it an easy recommendation for all kinds of photographers and all kinds of photography.”
“The a7 III is a top-quality hybrid stills and video camera body that I highly recommend. It comes in at a price point that makes it very appealing to students, indie filmmakers and anyone on a small budget.”
“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.”
“It has the best mirrorless autofocus system on the market, sharp, full-frame 4K video, high shooting speeds worthy of a sports camera, and excellent image quality. It’s not perfect, but after trying it for a week, I can say it’s easily the best $2,000 camera you can buy, and it even tops a few more expensive cameras.”
“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!”
