Having been shooting with it for a while now, it doesn’t surprise me one bit that the Sony a7iii has come right out of the gate as a very popular camera. It’s a full-frame mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera with a 24MP sensor, and it’s competitively priced.
It looks an feels like a slightly simplified version of the flagship a7riii, but it comes at a very impressive sub-$2000 price point (you can find the latest prices of the various configurations here). After shooting with it for a while, I’ve found the a7iii to be very much a worthy addition to Sony’s Alpha line, with excellent performance and handling.
I’m posting these photos here in the hope that they’re useful in giving a sense of how the camera performs in real-world shooting. I’ve tried to include a mix of lighting conditions, exposure settings, and subjects. I’ve also included shots taken with several different lenses. In other words, the type of thing you might come across in travel photography. I’ve not included any studio setups, and they’re all natural light–no BYO lighting.
Most of these were shot in RAW. They were processed in Lightroom, but because the point of this is to show the performance of the camera, most of these have only been edited lightly, without fancy filters or processing. I’ve used the camera profiles rather than the Adobe profiles, although I tend to prefer the results from the Adobe profiles over the Sony ones–the Sony ones have a tendency to more of a greenish tinge than is to my liking. But again, since the purpose here is to show the performance of the camera and not necessarily to present finished, polished images, I’ll use the camera’s own profiles.
If you’re interested in seeing more photos showing the a7iii’s high-ISO performance specifically, I have a separate post with more high-ISO images here.
