Videographers say Super-35 is better (which is 1.5 crop on the A7iii), because it has less rolling shutter and image quality isn’t much different in practice. Also because of the difference in aspect ratios, they’ve noticed FF has a slight stretched vertical distortion.
That's an opinion I don't really agree with.
The Phillip blooms of the world record full frame, and with non 4K footage, Canon's record FF.
While the A7R3 has better Super 35 than FF, I'm of the opinion that the differences are purely academic. I actually use BOTH modes quite a bit, but it's not for IQ, it's for focal length flexibility. A 28-75 f2.8 can zoom to near 200mm f2.8, which can get you interesting B-roll.
I'm perfectly fine with Crop/Super 35 for video, just cant take away my FF mode, because wide angle is primary video most of the time. Video and Stills are not the same, so in video, I have no issue at all with Super 35, but I do have issue with shooting crop full time on a FF camera. In video, you only need 8mp of data, and somewhat limited to latitude, while photography is vastly different.
Focal length is the reason you want the ability to avoid 4K crop. Shooting with primes as explained earlier, and you're SOL.
