Sony A7iii vs Sony A7Riii

2 years 5 months ago #676635 by Malcolm Unger
I have been thinking about moving to Sony and just to be clear, when you put aside MP and focus points, are there any other major differences between these two cameras.  Beside price?  

Are the controls and such pretty much the same?

Controls are pretty much the same. The A7iii will have cleaner high ISO. I think it's better for video also. I didn't care for the evf in the A7iii myself. I thought it was quite pixelated. That would be something you could easily compare in person.

Few differences:

R3 has a much stronger shutter, rated at 500,000 clicks vs 250,000
R3 has a way better viewfinder and rear LCD screen
R3 is built slightly better, more metal less plastic in the construction
Low light is basically the same, with the A73 having a slight edge better
Using APS-C mode on the R3 still gives you 18mp images which is handy
A73 has more focus points, goes right to the edge although performance is the same in any lighting situation

The best answer is if you can afford the R3 get it, otherwise the A73 is fine and still a great camera

WOW, that is double shutter life.  Even at 250k is a lot.  I wonder why double??  How in the world do they even test that?
