Sony's full-frame mirrorless cameras keep getting better and better! The latest-generation of their "entry-level" option, the A7 III, is no exception. At $2,000 it's admittedly kind of odd to consider it "entry-level," but the A7 line is the starting point into the Sony full-frame mirrorless family. However, don't think that means they've skimped-out on features or performance, quite the opposite actually.

In fact, the Sony A7 III offers so many upgrades, improvements and general refinements compared to its predecessor that we think this just might be the best Sony full-frame mirrorless camera around currently. Sporting the same body design upgrades as we saw on the A7R III -- a touchscreen, larger EVF, joystick control, bigger Z-battery, and dual card slots, among other things -- as well as an updated 24MP sensor with front-end LSI, a faster processor and an autofocus system that borrows a lot of horsepower from the A9, you have a very well-rounded camera that's suited to a lot of different photographic styles.

We've just published our in-depth Sony A7 III Review, complete with full labortory testing, sample images, field test, video review and, of course, our final conclusion. Based on our findings, the A7 III offers improvements all around: better image quality, better dynamic range, better performance, better AF and a better suite of video features. Of course, there are still a few downsides and frustrations, which we unveil in our detailed reports, but overall, the result is an overwhelmingly excellent camera. At $2,000, it's hard to say it's a "bargain," but it's a price that's reachable for a lot of photographers. The A7 III offers such a great combination of quality, performance and features, that it's a clear winner in our books.
