The A7ii is actually my backup body. It’s a great camera! It’s the A7ii that started my plan to move from Nikon (D750 main body) to Sony.
Love my a7ii
I can vouch for Panamoz- excellent customer service (better than many UK retailers). Spent around £3k with them on a couple of lenses and saved around £1k compared to UK retailers. Not all products have great savings, but some do. Other lenses (55 1.8 & 70-200 f4) I bought from Jessops as there wasn’t much difference in cost..
It’s not better. It’s different. It’s very good for video. The best comparison for video from Sony to the GH5 is the A7Sii. Which is better likely depends on your requirements. E.g. GH5 - global shutter; A7Sii better low light. A7Riii is excellent for both photo and video, but high MP brings pros and cons. As a professional architectural and interiors photographer, I bought an A7iii over the A7Riii not because of cost (but because my clients don’t need the MP count if the A7Riii, and I would like to get through my workload on an evening faster, so the 24mp of the A7iii is a benefit to me (FWIW I use Apple’s 2017 highest spec custom MB Pro). All depends on your requirements..
