Quote:In terms of this camera being a "basic" model, the Sony Alpha A7 Mark III is hardly what we'd call "basic"

If Sony are classing this as "Basic" can one assume they are aware of an " Advanced" model coming in the future ?

I've had mine for a few weeks with Sigma lenses and their MC11 (no Sony lenses) and am in agreement it ticks so very many boxes for the money it's really worth it. However I've some warnings for potential buyers:
- It can't focus on horizontal edges (in phase detect). It just can't! Isn't that worth mentioning? Hopefully it's just on Sigma lenses. Anyone else know?
- Only my Sigma Art 35 lens produces good results. The 12-24 and 70-200 aren't bad, the 85mm isn't great.
- Yes it's a mini a9 in some respects but the focus tracking is certainly a little more indecisive than the a9, and as it says here silent shooting of moving objects falls victim to bendy pictures. The latter is an 'edge case' I know.
- Eye AF is cool in studio but not worth trying to use on a shot you might miss.
- Just as they don't mention which pd sensors are H,V or cross, No-one mentions which of the pd points are more sensitive - a Sony engineer said the central ones are a bit better but I haven't been able to measure it.
- Compared to my old Canon DSLR, the controls are a bit more laggy especially moving ISO around. But there are more controls because it does so much more. I'm getting the hang of just putting the setup I like into a memory as I did with the Canons.
-This won't surprise anyone but in case someone was wondering - no the Tamron 24-70 doesn't work well at all with the Sigma (clue's in the name) MC11.

On the plus side, the dynamic range and colour stability are great. In particular, colours in high iso dark areas remain stable, which is a hangup I had with my old 6D and 5d3 - they just couldn't produce stable blacks.

Thanks as always for the great reviews.
