A lot has changed since Sony announced the a7 III back in February 2018 with competitors offering solid competition to what is arguably one of the most influential mirrorless cameras ever made. Given its current price, how much value does it offer in today’s market?
Dan Watson gives his thoughts on where the a7 III still shines and where it falls short. Right now it’s available for $1,698, the best price since it hit the market and still offering an excellent range of specifications for the money.
For anyone investing in their first full frame camera, the a7 III is arguably the best choice for anyone on a tight budget simply because of the vast array of third party lenses available. You can check out my list of the best 12 prime lenses for Sony, and that's before you dig into the wealth of zoom options available from the likes of Sigma and Tamron.
My a7 III is still going strong and while I continue to love its compact size and fantastic raw files, there’s nothing refined about the shooting experience — definitely an area where Sony decided to save some money when cramming in so many features.
How do you think it compares to the recent offerings from Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, and Fujifilm? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
