My first really good camera
Been shooting the a7iii for 18 months and love it. So versatile. Fast auto focus I shoot wildlife, Astro and landscape. It is truly a versatile camera.

Not Currently Viable for Low Light/Long Exposure
I shoot a lot of astro and nightscape timelapse. I recently upgraded to this camera from my Nikon D5300. I love many of the features the A7 III brings to the table, but there is a serious defect with how it handles long exposures especially in low light conditions. If you take an image with the shutter on, you'll see that there are hot pixels all throughout the image when it should be completely black. This still persists when shooting a long exposure in low light conditions. I've opened a ticket with Sony to try to confirm if this is expected behavior, or something that could be fixed with a firmware update. So far this issue is persistent on both of the A7 III bodies I've tested with multiple lenses, so it seems to be an inherent defect. Until this is addressed, this camera is absolutely unusable for long exposure in low light conditions, are very poor for long exposure in normal conditions. If this issue is fixed, I would readily give a full 5 stars to this camera. If it operated as expected in the scenarios mentioned above, it would be a nearly perfect camera.

Switched from Nikon and never looked back

Last year i purchased my first Sony a7iii and since then I have purchased another two a7iii bodies and lenses to go with my setup. With over 125000 photos taken over last 12 months I must say that I have put this camera through decent test.

The Quality

I had been wanting a Sony ever since I used my friends briefly. It made me realize it was time to upgrade. I saved for almost a year to purchase it and I love it! The digital viewfinder is amazing and so helpful when adjusting ISO/F stop/ shutter speed. It shows a live view of what your photo will look like. I love the look of the photos and also the slow shutter speed for night photography!

Brutal Design, Beautiful Output

I bought this camera about a week ago, the A7iii is a major step up in many ways and step down in others. Still image quality and Autofocus capability are in another league compared to most other cameras I've used. These were the primary reasons I made the switch and I couldn't be happier.

The biggest issue with the A7iii is a slight lagginess in physical control responsiveness. It's a nit pick to be sure, but it's lends to a very slight feeling of disconnected-ness from the act of taking a picture. The A7iii functions wonderfully but the physical act of turning the front and rear dials, pressing buttons, or adjusting the EV dial lags in responsiveness to what you see on screen.

The concerns about the menu system being overcomplicated are exaggerated in my opinion. The features of this camera are complex and I really appreciate the ability to super customize the camera to my needs. Perhaps, adding some more explanation about what some of the features in the menu are would help.

In the end, the quality of the image is all that really matters and the A7iii allows me to create the images I want to create with a higher rate of success than any other camera I've ever owned. Thank you, Sony for putting a camera of this capability within my reach.

Eye AF is a game changer, ISO is amazing

Have been very happy with it overall, so far. The A7III is my primary wedding camera, with an A6300 as my back up. (Also have a second A6300 converted to infrared.) The main reason for updating my camera equipment was the Eye AF. My previous equipment had a marked tendency to lock autofocus on a high contrast background, rather than on people's faces. Obviously, for a portrait and wedding photographer, this was problematic at times, and potentially disastrous. Having Sony's eye tracking AF is an amazing improvement, to be sure. I do wish the A7III did not require the extra pushing of a button to engage the feature. That is one thing that is a bit of a disappointment, and actually the ONLY fault I have with this terrific camera. The focus is SO FAST, and the high ISO capability is nothing short of amazing. The compact body is still substantial, feels solid in the hand, but not bulky. I love the tilt screen and have used it multiple times to shoot a group of people on the dance floor from overhead. For sports shooters, the high ISO capability allows you to use faster shutter speeds to get the fast action shots, and the subject tracking does very well there, too. The menus can be a bit intimidating as they are so in-depth, but necessary in order for the camera to have such immense capability for customization.

Perhaps Sony will do a software update at some point, so that the Eye AF can be engaged all the time? We can hope! And then this camera would be absolutely PERFECT. It's pretty close now!

Needs dial locks!

I've had my a7III for almost a year. I like using it. I like the quality of the images it produces. However, there is one huge error in the design. No locks on the dials. The exposure compensation dial always seems to want to wander. I usually don't have any problems with the mode setting dial moving, but it has moved a couple of times. Sony must have had tripod shooters in mind when they designed this camera and not people who hand carry their cameras 99% of the time.

Is it an oversight by Sony to not include locks in the design? Yes. Is it a deal breaker on me recommending this camera?

On to other things. This is an easy camera to use right out of the box, but a hard camera to learn. While there is always auto mode (why would you by an expensive camera to use auto mode?) you can easily learn to use aperture and shutter modes to get you out and taking pictures. Then, I highly recommend you watch a few tutorials on the internet to learn to use all the other features this camera has to offer. It's been a year, and I'm still learning. A touch screen menu would be helpful here. I still find myself fumbling with buttons and dials to change settings.

While not a deal breaker, a touch screen would be so nice... Sony! Are you listening?

All around great camera

I bought this camera in December 2019 and since then it has worked wonderfully even with 3rd party lenses. It even performed well in temperatures below freezing. I only gave it 4 stars because it still gets dust on the sensor very easy. I know it's not a big deal but I try my best to have the camera in a way that keeps the dust away from the sensor and I had the same issue on my a7r ii. I keep cleaning it but I have to clean after every shooting outing.

@Kap_man, Great! Good to know that this is what you are looking for in a product. Thanks for choosing Sony. ~Zac
