While reviews are good, if you don't need all those MP, you can get the A7III for $1k less and I believe it has better AF and better specs for video. Makes justifying the R3 a bit more difficult if you don't need the resolution.

Either way, both are great cameras and Sony is pushing the envelope while Canon and Nikon lag behind.

If you're not committed to a system you may want to wait and see what Canon and Nikon release later this year. Supposedly they'll release their mirrorless offerings, but my guess is they'll have new lens mounts and the mirrorless won't be in the same league as the "pro" stuff such as D5 and 1dx. Will be interesting to see what happens to the market next year.

I'm honestly not expecting much from Canon, they'll do as little as possible to get into ff mirrorless and people will buy it for the name. Just like their relatively crippled aps-c mirrorlesss offerings. Nikon is fighting for their future and IMO is more likely to release something significant.

In any case, Sony is the one that's pushing change. Just saying if you don't need the MP, then the A7iii might be a better choice, especially for the better AF and video features.

Huh? A real down payment would be $40k on a $200k house.

Oh man, I have been drooling over the 7R! I'm all about sharpest image I can get and these images are seriously resulting in superior quality. This bundle seems like a nice way to sweeten the deal. I need a good tripod, so tired of messing with crappy ones. Anyone have any experience with this tripod?

All the reviews I heard are very good

Just got the A7iii last week and agree completely. I also have a 3 year old Nikon D750. Both are awesome, but the A7iii is so much more portable and can shoot amazing video.

A7riii at this price new, in a bundle, is a nice deal. The cropping ability of the 42MP sensor is a coup for wildlife or sports, as long as your glass is good. The pixel shift ability is also great.

Personally I like carrying my a7 it's a little smaller and lighter than my 5d. But when I'm doing real work I use the 5d, the battery life is awesome...anytime you want to look through the view finder of the Sony you're eating up battery.

Really? Isn't the Sony sensor far superior to the Canon sensor?

Honestly I can't tell...I use the same lens on both via an adapter. The ergonomics and the long battery life is much better. Because it's smaller you have to grip it harder...most likely is because of the L lens I'm using on it. I Didn't want to invest in the slower smaller lens system of Sony.
