Reasons ?? really curious. I know it kills the R with eye focus and it has dual cards. So Big plus.
I have shot Canon since the AE1 Back around 1979.. Had the 5D MK4 until an unfortunate water episode about 6 months ago (long story, my fault)I also owned the Sony A6000 for travel so I have gotten used to the whacked menu system of the Sony's. So the A7III was purchased, and I bought the Tamron 28-75 for landscape purposes and high school senior sessions. Instantly fell in love with this thing. The focus system, the color tones are great,it will shoot bracket photos so much faster than the R, and since I knew the menu all is good ! But what I really enjoy is sports ! Have the entire line up of Canon lenses for night and day high school sports. I didn't want to drop $2500 on the Sony 70-200 because I have the Canon lenses, so the R was released and I probably was thinking it has to be as good as the Sony and I wouldn't need to sell my lenses at a loss. I do not think that is the case now. The Sony will work much better for sports with the frames per second advantage, the no shutter lag, or drag.. Or whatever you call this downfall.
With that said, I will make the best of this camera. Hell, I bought the 100-400 to go chase wildlife and that is what I will do !
