Definitely not.. they're are lens made specifically for both in the digital world.

Hence why on the A7iii for example you have to manually set it if you want to attach a crop sensor lens and it still won't shoot the same.

Yes you can shoot with either, but they serve very different purposes in final shot outcome.

I'm 100% correct on there being specific full frame lens vs. lens made for a apsc camera.

See attached link from Sony.com in my post. Have a good day.

I did not try RP yet, but I have Canon T7i.
I bought a7ii with 28-70mm lens for 1k during black frinday sale, also bought 35mm yongnuo lens for it.
After "playing" with it for a week - I returned it.
T7i does much better pictures with standard stock lens then sony.
Sony autofocus is slow and really bad, lighting is bad- all pictures come out dark even in sunny day outside. face colors are yellowish/green, (known problem of sony cameras according to internet articles). inside buildings pictures are even worse. I tried auto mode, manual mode, all modes, nothing fixes the picture quality. I think it is not acceptable for this price camera to do this quality pictures. No matter it is a user error or not. Battery life only good for 200 pics or so. No built in flash. Small but very heavy. I just sent it back.
I've had the Canon T3i and Canon T7i. While they were both great cameras at the time and the T7i is an awesome camera for an entry level consumer, you can't seriously compare the picture quality between a7iii and T7i..
Here is a low light comparison between the 2..

Is it worth to get this or RII? I have someone selling used with 2100 shutter count asking 1200. Thanks.
Try both in store. They feel like completely different cameras. If you have to ask, then image quality from either one will almost certainly be good enough, so it'll probably come down to how responsive each one is. The RII feels slow compared to modern cameras and the shutter speed is loud enough that it might be a deal breaker for some people.

Omg this is terrible advice and anyone who defends buying an APS-C at the same price is delusional
It's delusional to prefer a smaller, lighter, and more affordable setup? It's hilarious how everyone on SD is suddenly a professional wedding/studio photographer when these camera deals are posted.

This is good advice right here! More people should go to the store, hold it and use it in person.

I say if the don't need the extra megapixels.. skip the Rii and go for the a7ii.

Ok, assuming you are right - then how come my canon pictures with kit lens gives me 10 times better pictures than sony ?
And I also made a mistake about fixed lens, it was 300$ Samyang SYIO35AF-E 35mm.
(I agree with you about youngnuo). How can that make bad pictures?

I might have gotten deffective camera, I dont know.. But my experience was not good at all.
Plus the price of sony lenses are 2x of canon's.
you must be doing something seriously wrong to think you can capture better photos with your T7i over the Sony A7ii. There are just too many variables to consider, but I'm sure it's user error. It's probably better you stick with an entry level camera instead of a full frame camera anyway.

The Alpha is for all intents and purposes a complete system. The amateur has all the native lens options they would ever need to choose from. The Eos R is not anywhere close to that

LOL..appears you don't even own a camera, let alone a DSLR.
Right... There are full-frame options in the $1000 range. Buy used, if you have to. But if you have a moderate interest in photography, in the long run, you will spend more money going crop sensor and then moving to full-frame.

At the very least, buy a crop senor and then invest in good full-frame lenses that will work with the upgraded camera.

Or, waste your money completely on crop sensor lenses.

is eos rp better than a7ii ?
Try it out from lensrentals. Like J.lanier says, once you go Sony you won't go back.

Then the mirror gazers wonder why Sony has so many fanboys and troll.

Fwiw, Jim Kasson has excellent scientific based articles available for the 7m3 that are worth checking out.

7m4 is about to be released as well.

Unfortunately, in 2020, nearly none of those things are all that true anymore. Smaller and lighter? Barely, and most people would probably prefer the features that are on full-frame cameras, specifically, better low light performance.

As far as affordable, that's more of a debate, but, most people will come out way ahead by just going with full-frame setups to start. You don't have to spend a fortune on lenses with full-frame, and the used market has a ton of really quality gear at reasonable prices.

Why obsolete yourself immediately? Do your research.

You're trying so hard to cope with the fact that you shoot on a garbage APS-C, quite funny actually. The A7 platform is for entry level hobbyist/beginning professionals, equating the a7 platform to the Canon t series is a joke. This is coming from someone who's owned several FF Canons.

That depends on your photography needs/wants. If you could elaborate more on that I'm sure someone could give some helpful insight.
Very good point. I do lots of landscape and astrophotography which the RX1rII somehow does fairly well, though the 35mm can be extremely limiting. Would like to get into more portrait photography. However I do like traveling very light, and the 35mm does admirably well for backpacking trips. Am just wondering if it can compare to the A7III in terms of hand-held low-light situations. AF also feels a little slow but I've not been able to handle an A7III to see if it's any faster (I imagine so)
