A7r iii is the perfect “all around” for my tastes. I think the price is also very competitive and definitely takes on the Nikon D850 nicely. I actually feel kind of bad for the 5D IV right now...

Exciting times for the Sony community.

I’m also really glad to see Nik getting some love from DXO. Will we be able to pay a fee for updates or are they just rolling the Nik tools into their own software?

I'm happy with my A7R ii and 5D4 still. The Riii looks nice, and I'll be following the adapted glass, but everything I've tried to adapt glass works fine for basic focus modes, but not very well for Eye AF. I'm either going to get 35/50/85 in Sigma Art or just stick with the "affordable" f/1.8 Sony glass.

Excellent new on DXOnik, signed up to be notified. Thanks for the link.
Some wise person in this forum said (I think Travis) you can emulate NIK in other software
but way way too much time.

On the Riii I've mulled it over. Looks to be a great all-rounder if you like jack-of-alls. I remember when the 5Diii
was a jack-of-all. Personally I like purpose built machines that excel at one thing. The 5Diii never really
did it for me-I liked the 7Dii better. 42mpx is 42mpx. The extra
DR will be nice for you true landscapers.
There, I've talked myself into sticking with what I've got though Guy over at FM is all in for selling the a9 to fund
his Riii.

So here's a ancient greek dialectic-
A7Rii for landscaping
A7Riii for mostly landscaping + things that move sometimes
a9 for things that move

If you travel a lot where weight space matters then the Riii is a great choice.

Now where is the a7000 ???

I believe the plan is roll in some of Nik’s technology and features into DxO photolab.

Just a headsup, selling my RII soon. who wants to take it? i hate to sell it but it's the only way the RIII will land in my hand. Meanwhile I can always use my A6000.

Assuming the a7rIII performs as well as the a9, adapted glass should work well. I've been using the 24-70II on the a9 and it feels very close to native glass...eye af and all.

I'm a big fan of the Jack of all approach, hence my love for the A7rii. 10 fps will be a welcome, however improved silent shooting and possibly better firmware with adapted glass, I'm much more interested in. Slightly better AF with eye AF on the CV 35.... and I'm in hog heaven.

joystick, big battery, nice features, however I'm not hurting with. After all is said and done, the price makes it a tad too close to the A7rii that I'de just jump to the r3. love that they kept the same price and added many features. I've been slowly saving for a lens, but didnt have that GAS feeling that I have now, it's through the roof at this point :-P

Spot on Charlie. I've been looking hard at the Sigma as I was really impressed with the optics when I rented it. It was just buggy via the MC-11 on the a7rII, but I'm really interested in the lens again with this new firmware.

Very happy I got the A9 the A9 / A7rII combo will cover me for a while. Downstream I see myself upgrading to used cameras if this is they upgrade cycle i.e. A7rii to A7riii.

The DR on the 7r3 is the only thing that interests me..... from convenience the batteries would be nice to have work in both cameras but I can survive.

I really enjoyed my extended weekend with the A9. Think I have the 6500 sold if not I will offer it here first.

Some quick ones from the weekend.

I used both the MC11 and MBIV with S135A, and the MBIV simply blew it away, it wasnt even close. I was running the latest firmware as of August?

it behaves no differently than the 24-70ii on MBIV. I would like a native solution for video usage, but I dont really use the S135 for video, so not a big deal. I do use the 24-70 for video, so may wait a bit for people to sell their 24-70's for 24-105. Either way, not very pressing as I shoot primes mostly.
