My next camera has to be full frame, after I saw my friend's Canon full frame in action in low night.
Fullframe only help with 1 f stop of light. You can get a fast lens. There are f2.0, f1.8, f1.4... the smaller numbers are better. Prime lens are cheaper. Dynamic range of a7iii is very good. At 1 candle light, the 7s line is better (7s2).
The differences in fullframe is separation from background and easier to get background blur (more blur for the same "type of lens"). Usually better at portrait. Also fullframe is better for colors (the light hitting the sensor are not just white). But not having it side by side, you will not notice.

FYI there are no full frame lenses. Lenses so not have to do anything with full frame or APC or 3/4
Lens are made to focus on an area (sensor). The fullframe sensor are bigger than the apsc. Fullframe lens on apsc, you can wasted a lot of area where there are no sensor and the image look like it is zoom in because you only use the middle part of the lens (crop factor). Apsc lens on full frame, the outer area of the sensor receives no light from the lens and appear dark (vignette). I love that sony use both e and fe on the same amount system. I look at others and their fullframe do not fit their apsc line without an adapter.
You can use both apsc and ff on the e mount sony camera. But you have to test each lens to see how bad the vignette is. I had an apsc lens making vignette in an apsc camera.
The ff or apsc lens are naming scheme so we know which sensor size the lens are made for.

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.
Canon usually has better lens. You can find some good old lens for cheap (manual) (adapters?). I think it is better for students to get the canon so they could learn.

The camera is a tool. And should be the last thing you should consider.

Composition, lighting, framing is the key. Then the lens, then the camera.

The a7iii is the 2nd best of most worlds. I am 100 percent sure that a pro with a 50 dollars camera can capture an image better than I can if I have the $4k camera in hand.

If you like the t7i, keep using it. Different people require different tools. Yongnuo are very bottom of the barrel lens. But if it works, I see no problem. If you do have time, try out the a7iii. The autofocus is much better, dynamic range, battery life, color science too.

It is good that you let us know that the camera does not have build in flash and it is heavy. But you bark on the wrong tree when it comes to professional camera. No one will use the build in flash, if they do not have to. Light need to diffuse. Lots of pro CAN use the build in flash. The light is too harsh, sometime it kill the background.

You have not started at the dslr. This camera is a god send. Weight? lol... I would put this at the light end of professional camera. It is actually too light for some usage.
I agree. I need to get better lens and learn more. Thanks.
You right about flash. The weight was surprise for me. I know pro cameras are big and heavy, but this sony is smaller in size then canon, but much heavier..
Noot too much of course, but still really noticeable, especially if going to put flash on it and carry it with you..

Great camera, I have the a7III and r4IV, and still use it quite a bit. I don't think this is a great deal though, the lens included is not a great performer. Also not much of a portrait lens at 2.8.

May well be a price mistake, but there is a seller (Dodd Camera) with A7iii's with 28-70mm lens on Amazon for $1198.00:

I swear I'm not the seller, just a buyer of one :-)

Dang, Looks like this is gone/fixed. I have my eyes set on a A7iii (i've heard a lot of complaints about the 2) or A7Riii, but will have to wait till prices get a bit lower. Hopefully the A7IV and new canon offerings coming soon will drive the prices down so I can get into full frame on a modest budget.

Thank you! I almost feel like the A7III would be worth it, and just keep my RX1rII as a highly specialized 35mm. Until the RX1rIII comes out, this thing's kept its value very well. And I was lucky enough to receive it for "only" 2k two years ago from a photographer I happened to meet.
You got it for $2k 2 years ago?? What a steal

Yeah, I got extremely fortunate. The photographer used it for taking product photos and travel shoots for magazines, this was their beater camera. Had a ridiculously high actuation count and lots of edges were worn through the paint but no actual damage, lens had a hoya filter and everything was remarkable shape. Saw their ad on craigslist the minute it went up and by the time I met with her to buy the camera, she said she had to delete the listing because she was getting too many e-mails.
