    A7iii or A7Rii?

    Moving to Sony, I can probably manage to go for either of the above. Mainly for family shots, portraits and travel. Which would you recommend?

    One of a much larger set... it wasn't a portrait shoot so very much candid. He did his thing for some folk and I did mine and stayed out of his way.

    Another vote for the Sony A7 III.
    I have one along side my Sony A9.
    Pound for pound, the Sony A7 III is unbeatable compared to what’s out on the market.

    If the Rii is like the Riii it’s a little frustrating when reviewing etc too.

    Just a daft shot of LED solar lights at ISO12800 and 0.5 seconds - handheld.
    9:45pm about an hour after sunset locally.

    RII was pretty slow but Riii supports UHSII cards with which it's fast with single shots and low bursts. Haven't tried fast bursts yet...

    It has decent buffer for fast burst mode. Slightly more than the Canon 5d4.

    Once it fills it takes ages to clear

    It has a fair bit more than 5D4 because A7RIII is holding 42mp files vs. 30mp files.

    Face registration, do any of the wedding photographers here use it and how does it work, is it worth bothering with?

    Thanks

    Haven't used in wedding scenario but have used it in other places. It's a nice feature if you are certain you always want a certain person (eg. Bride, bridegroom) over others in focus. It could also work against you in that if you don't want a registered person in focus but someone else and the camera will try to fight you lol (of course there are ways around it by moving you focus point etc for the odd different picture)

    Rumor sites are saying that a Canon CSC will be announced on 4th or 5th September...

    https://www.mirrorlessrumors.com/co...less-camera-to-be-announced-on-september-4-5/

    As with Nikon I don't suppose that the kit will be available on announcement day. I do wonder if we'll see something from Sony at or about the time Canon and Nikon announce their new CSC's, maybe an A9r or S or at least an A7sIII.

    In my experience companies often have a very good idea what the competition is up to so I wouldn't be too shocked if Sony do have a very good idea what Nikon and Canon will be offering and maybe have a spoiler announcement just about ready. Just a thought :D

    one from saturday with the 50mm sigma art.

    didn't get much enjoyment from shooting with the a7r2/sigma combo, but liking what they can do together.

    Looks like the a7iii wins out against the A7Rii. Just need to get the d750 and lenses sold to finance it now.

    Probably going to try and pick up a 35mm F2.8 and 55mm F1.8 as the lens combo. Both fairly pricey mind!

    The Samyang 35 definitely looks a worthy contendor to the sony.

    I would have thought 35 and 55mm are a bit close together, have you considered the lovely little Sony FE28 f2.0 and the 55?

    Or a Sony 28mm f2, picked mine up for £270 and it's a cracking little lens if that 4mm isn't that important...

    Maybe, but I think we'll see a new APS-C body before any significant lens announcements. There might be a new kit lens with the A7600 though :D

    I've looked at the A6xxx line a few times and to be honest the only things missing for me are a compact and reasonably priced 24mm f1.8 (the current one is a bit much and a bit big) and a 18-50mm f2.8.

    It's an 16-50 f/2.8 or similar that's the most glaring omission, Sigma have several APS-C primes which fill most of the Sony gaps, you do have the 16-70 f/4 CZ, but an f/2.8 would be better.

    I'd also like to see an APS-C version of the 70-200 f/4 - something better than the 55-210 (which is not bad, to be honest), but more compact and affordable than the FF G masters
