Back-illuminated 24.2MP full-frame sensor - The 35mm full-frame Exmor R CMOS image sensor features 24.2-megapixel 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 improvement in image quality. 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. Focal-plane phase-detection AF supports A-mount lenses - Phase-detection AF can operate even when an A-mount lens18 is mounted to the α7 III via an LA-EA3 adaptor. The 693-point focal-plane phase-detection AF system provides wide-area coverage, fast response, and high-performance tracking.

I have shot Sony (not exculsively) for over 7 years and this is the best. I love my A7rii but my computer hates it. Sure if you want to crop 42mp is ideal, but why not get it right to start with. 24mp for daily/general use is perfect and your computer will love you for it. If you know how to use this camera its amazing but remember it is YOU who takes the picture, not the camera.
This camera is not for everybody but what I do not understand is how anyone can spend £2000 and not have researched or tried it beforehand and then complain about things that have been well documented. If you are new to Sony try it out first. If you are a sony user you will not be disappointed. The Sony A7Riii and the A9 are better and several £0000`s more but neither have the combined features this has.
The AF point is grey so you can almost never see it and the most recent firmware hasn't addressed that issue. There's no ultrasonic automatic sensor cleaning so I've already got dust on mine despite putting one prime lens the minute I bought it and never taking it off, I feel this will be a constant issue and PITA to deal with.
On the top of that I've had the camera for only few days and only used at home, and since day 1 I've been having issues with memory cards. "Unable to read memory card. Reinsert memory card. Slot 1" error appears randomly. Tested with different brands and capacities (Sandisk 32, 64 and 128GB, Lexar 64GB). The same cards work fine in Slot 2 but Slot 1 randomly throws this error and locks the camera. Swapping cards 10 times, removing the battery 15 times and chanting some ancient druidic prayers to the gods of thunder helps, until it happens again at random.
Anyway, on with the review
The technology in the Sony A7 iii is really good. The sensor offers me at least two stops more usability in low light compared to my micro four-thirds kit - as it should do being roughly 4x the size. It also give me much more headroom for pulling highlights and pushing shadows. I worry less about getting the exposure right, and instead concentrate simply on getting the shot, knowing that there is a great latitude available in the RAW files. Autofocus also works great - for people I just set it to wide area and let face/eye detect do the rest. If you want more control of focus point(s) there are a bunch of useful settings, and the joystick makes it really easy to quickly change the focus area.
It's not blazing fast for S-AF, like many of the u43 camera/lens combos are, but that's just a function of the relative size of the focussing elements. C-AF and/or tracking is better than anything I've used in u43, including the E-M1 ii. Eye-AF is very good, although slightly annoying that you have to hold down a button for it to kick in.
AWB is good. It seems to err on the cool side outdoors, and the warm side indoors, but this bias can be tweaked, and it's no problem if you set it manually or process RAW.
The camera is endlessly customisable, and I've no problem with the menus, which I find fairly well laid out compared to my Olympus cameras.
Doesn't have the build quality of a £2k camera. It's a bit better overall than the original A7 (less wobbly mount), but lacking in some important areas.
The (plastic) mode dial on both copies felt slightly loose, with more play in it than on any other mode dial on any other camera I've owned or used. It just feels cheap.
The front and rear control dials are a bit plasticy, a bit mushy, and not a patch on my original Sony A7's ones, nor any of my previous Olympus OM-D cameras. More worryingly - as mentioned at the top - the front dial on both my copies randomly "skips" settings/pictures/menu items, which is a bit worrying in a brand new camera. The replacement copy also has a skipping rear wheel, although it's not as bad as the front dial, and I don't really use the wheel that much anyway. I had an Olympus E-PL5 that did similar with it's control wheel, and eventually it became unusable. The battery and card covers seem OK, but the interface covers are poor quality, and the one that covers the USB charging sockets is badly designed - you can't sit the camera on a flat surface and charge it via micro-USB at the same time, because this socket is too close to the cover's hinge . I've subsequently bought a USB-3.0 cable - the socket for this is further away from the hinge, so doesn't have the same problem.
Overall, it's an incredibly capable camera, but let down by the ropey build quality/QC.
It does come with a battery charger that connects to the camera itself, but you can disassemble the cable to use only as a USB to connect to a power bank, which is great if you are on travelling.
