- Back-illuminated 24.2MP11 full-frame sensor : The 35mm full-frame Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor features 24.2-megapixel11 resolution, back illumination, and gapless on-chip lens design for extraordinary sensitivity and dynamic range. Two times faster12 data readout speed is achieved through copper wires and front-end LSI.
- Entirely enhanced image processing system : A combination of new-generation image processing system and a new sensor achieves an up to 1.5-stop improvement12 in image quality. A wide ISO sensitivity range of up to ISO 51200 is standard, and approx. up to 15-stop13 dynamic range at low sensitivity settings is realised. Upgraded Detail Reproduction and Area-specific Noise Reduction join to suppress noise and maintain a sense of high overall resolution. Colour reproduction, especially of skin and nature scenes, has also been dramatically improved. The α7 III also supports 14-bit RAW output14 even during silent shooting/continuous shooting15.
- Wider, faster, more steadfast AF performance : An evolved image processing system and α9 camera AF algorithms optimised for the α7 III improve AF speed, precision, and tracking performance. 693 phase-detection AF points and 425 contrast-detection AF points provide high-density wide-area coverage. AF speed improved by up to twice16 and more precise AF tracking performance let you capture and maintain focus on a quickly moving subject in unpredictable motion. The α7 III also autofocuses reliably down to EV-3 brightness.
- AF-ON button and multi-selector : The new AF-ON button activates autofocus without any half-press-shutter-button focus sequence, so you can concentrate better on exactly when to release the shutter and capture the moment instantly. A multi-selector lets you shift the point of focus quickly and efficiently. You can select and shift the point of focus intuitively, so you won’t miss great chances to shoot moving subjects.
- Always keep the eye in focus : Eye AF newly supports AF-C mode with greater precision that dramatically enhances portrait shooting, plus higher AF speed that makes it easier to shoot a portrait of a moving subject, even if the subject looks down and away from the camera, or is backlit with face in partial darkness. The α7 III supports Eye AF for A-mount lenses19 mounted via an adaptor.

I purchased this 2 weeks ago and its so good! I upgraded from the A6000 and I have no regrets!
I bought this camera a couple of weeks ago at a very competitive price. Been looking to go full frame and mirrorless for sometime as I had had my old cropped sensor DSLR for about 9-10 years.
All the write ups on this full frame mirrorless camera are good and as it is an old model you can get at reasonable price. The reviews are correct, it is a great camera although
I havent taken many shots yet, around 50, but it does take a great photo.
Having moved from a different manufacturer to Sony it still feels a bit strange. I would assess the camera 4/5 stars. Now I know that moving from one make to another is always going to be a bit difficult as manufacturers use different systems. However, I do have to say that the menus are extensive and I didnt find the handbook that helpful. Thankfully You Tube came to the rescue. I have found that Sony have their own training site which I have now started using.
Coming from another brand that I could practically set blindfold, I struggled with the menu system on the a7lll (you DO get used to it fairly quickly after some extensive research om the internet) but PARTICULARLY with the video button being so close to the one I set for Back Button focusing (AF-On). I don't use video at all so would like to nullify the video button completely, but that is not 100% possible. Anyway, loving the overall experience - eye focus is simply brilliant!
first new a7iii developed a fault after 7 months of ownership..sony replaced with a brand new camera..camera is great..fast focus..lots more features than you need and great value for money..both sony uk and the dealer..ffordes of beauly cannot be faulted for aftercare service,,pair this with the sony 200-600mm lens and you have one of the best setups going for wildlife photography..cannot fault it atall
Couple of weeks with the A7III despite it being a four year old body it feels great only time will tell once I get to do some Husky Racing images with it. Style of menus are a bit tricky but once all the custom options are set up I'm sure it will perform.
