I have actually written a full long term review with lots of images that can be found HERE. (external link)

In short I would say that the A7III is a truly amazing body and lenses like the Tamron 28-75mm and Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 make it an excellent system to switch to.

Daniel you have put a lot of effort into this.
Well done.
These sort of practical, life related reviews do far more for me than highly technical ones.

Not sure if to mention. Your opening sentence has an error
I finally made the move and got myself and A7III. I assume you meant myself an A7111
I'm not a spelling fanatic and don't go looking for such but it just stood out.

Hi Richard.

Yes I did make a mistake there so thank you for letting me know, I've already corrected it.

Yes I always prefer real word reviews over technical ones. It's funny because I struggle with assignments this length but had to stop myself from writing in this case :p Thank you for reading!

Great review. I'm still on the fence about an A9 or A7III, both seem great in different ways

I haven’t used the A9 yet (I will get to use the A9II in a few weeks at a Sony event) but do you shoot anything that needs that 20fps and blackout free shooting?
