Basic redefined: Affordable Sony A7 III’s pro-grade AF and high-performing burst mode get a real-world test

A few weeks back, we told you about the brand-new Sony A7 III, the company's latest entry-level full-frame mirrorless camera. Described by Sony as being its "basic model", the A7 III is nevertheless a whole lot more than what the title might suggest. With this camera, Sony aims to get the fundamentals right even while keeping cost to a minimum.

And having spent the best part of a week shooting with the A7 III in Las Vegas shortly after the launch, I have to say that I'm seriously impressed. This is one heck of a camera for the money, especially in the performance and autofocus departments! So how did I fare in my first shoots with the A7 III, and where do I see strengths or weaknesses in the design? To find out, you'll want to read the first field test in our ongoing Sony A7 III review for the full story!



Got any features you want to see tested that weren't covered in part one, or any questions about the camera? If so, sound off in the comments below or on the review itself, and let us know!
