Don't agree with, little difference between the 2 and 3 (AF points aside), slight tweaks on such such things as iso performance and continuous shooting speed

For stills this still has what it takes and £1000 cheaper than the 3

which part is exactly old tech? The tech in this surpasses what most will need

It doesn't matter if your aim is such things as landscape r Portraiture, I'd agree with you if you want it for moving subject, say sports

Theres very little difference between the two sensors, yes slight tweaks but I dont think the price difference between the two models warrants that

Disagree. Owned both. R2 is excellent, but oh-so frustrating because:

1) Terrible battery life. R3 battery life is much better. Much less need for 2nd battery and/or grip.
2) No UHS-II slot. With such large images, it's frustratingly slow to write uncompressed RAW files. Functions of the camera are disabled while writing from the buffer, and when the buffer fills, you miss shots. It happens on the R2. A lot.

The R3 from a usability perspective is what the R2 should've been. All the nice new AF functionality and speed is a bonus.

I think 1 year standard. Jessops had a deal a while ago when I got my R2. It came with an extra Sony 1 year warrant card which took it to 2 years.

I'll look in to it , not after a Sony but waiting for a good price on a Nikon body
I wonder what will happen to all the price of these when the r5 launches and the canon people who run to Sony ditch and run back for the r5 as it's looking like it will be the best camera arround (price not known yet though)
Good if you want UK based etc.

Another option is e-infin at £1,039. I've used them a bunch lately (for an a6600, Sony 16-55, few primes) and had no issues.
The newer Sony cameras are much closer to what they need to be. More issues the further back you go.

I’ve bought from e-infinity and panamoz. Panamoz were very responsive and patient with my difficult questions. They cut the serial numbers from the boxes. E-infinity never responded to any of my emails.

Can't see why the new sensors have such a large megapixel counts. Beyond a few pros whose shots are used for large posters seems to be just a way to justify higher body prices.

Got to say this was beyond my price range & was looking at the Canon 90D, possibly buying from Hdew? however I could not resist the Argos deal earlier in the year as I had a load of vouchers & was given some cash for my b/day. Has taken me a while to buy a lens at a good price. Also really hurt to buy a CFexpress card.

Z6 does now seem very good. I have a 24-120 f4 so was hoping to get one. The cost of nikon z lenses seems very high as well as the memory cards. Did u get the body for £1200?

Sorry for the off thread comments.

Sony A7ii is very good but would have needed to have been allot less than this for me to consider it.

Best ultra wide angle zoom I've ever owned. I don't use it often, certainly not as much as my favourite 24-70mm f2.8 S which is epic.The Nikon Z6 body would be a better deal than the Sony ARII, although it doesn't have the same resolution as the A7RII.

You're mistaken I am afraid, several differences - some subtle but make a massive difference to real world use.

1) Joystick at the rear makes selecting focus point miles easier
2) Better screen and EVF
3) AF performance
4) Dual card slots
5) UHS-II slot

For me the RIII is the perfect balance, the RIV has too high MP for my liking.

Those are all great additions IMO.

I don't doubt its a good lens its just for the shots I take I wouldn't use it that much. I think you need to be big on architecture/landscapes to be using it allot.

I don't see a need for the resolution that the a7riii provides.

Not really chap, none of that helps when shooting landscape and portraits for example, for that the sensor is absolutely more than adequate.

For some people these minor differences arent worth the extra cost, unless you're a pro at a wedding why do you need dual cards?

It's over £1000 cheaper than the r3

I'm not after this camera, nor do I want a Sony (though great cameas), I posted it as it's the cheapest price (with carbon fibre tripod) in the UK and takes superb images

Trust me, in use they are worth it.

I have used both and the joy stick is such a revelation even for landscapes. EVF makes MF much much easier. Dual card slots takes risk away.

Yes I did get it for £1200. Unfortunatey though it did not come with a memory card like others had managed so I picked up a 128GB CFexpress card from Germany. A little unsure it is 128GB as it has a label on the card that says 512GB! I have at present no way of knowing this. I also had to take my camera to a dealers to have the firmware flashed to accept the card
As for lenses they are not cheap but they are full frame lenses & have small aberrations compared to dslr lenses. After a lot of lens research I decided to buy the Nikon 24/70 f4 as a starter lens (nearly bought a Sigma f/2.8 variant). Managed to get one of these in pristine condition for £424. Can't really comment on the whole package yet as I've only had the lens a couple of weeks & still need to learn lots!

Good price for the 24-70; I have got so use to a wider zoom range (24-120 on APS-C) combined with a prime if I want to drop the f value.

I do get it. This is expensive for this camera, if you decide to sell in 5 months you would lose £400-£500. If I sell my A7RIII in 5 months I would lose maybe £50.

Yes, they are the same sensor so IQ is the same. But everything else usability wise is so much better on the RIII. Even the custom functions menu makes a big difference.

If I went on a once in a lifetime trip, I'd want dual card slots.

True. I do think if you used them both, you’d see my angle of view
I don't know enough about the sale prices these days, but don't forget the A7R II has the Playmemories Apps. The smooth water one and the timelapse ones are especially useful. These were taken with my Sony RX100 M4 but imagine the same idea with a better lens.

You are very correct, staying at the top of the ladder is an expensive game. I've said my piece on it and others have their opinions..at the end of the day this camera has superb IQ and would be good for years to come

Its especially tempting if you were setting out and need a tripod too
