I'm really happy with my Sigma trip, Sony 6400, 6000 cams and I've been wanting to make the jump to full frame but I'll have to wait for the savings to build up a little more. 😢
I hear the apc with sigma triple gets great results. I have a a7iii but lens options cost arm and leg... Results are similar to apc and lens you have. Save your $

Isn't beachamera the same as buydig? Is the 7riii worth $1000 more than 7rii?
FWIW any research i've done suggests it is.

Battery life alone is doubled in the A7iii, which isn't a big deal if you shoot casually, but is a big deal if you're trying to work quickly due to fading light or missing a "moment".
A7riii can do 1080p @120fps, and also has access to S-Log 3, so while it's not really a "Video-centric" camera, it offers more flexibility there.
Dual Card Slots on the A7riii
Way more AF points (25 vs 425)
Double the burst rate

However, all that said, if you're looking for a Bang-for-your-buck solution, the A7Rii seems very solid. The reason I look at the Riii as being worth the upgrade is that if you're looking at the R-series as something you need, you're probably needing more of those features as well, especially dual card slots (have a card fail on you 1 time and you will feel similarly). If you're just casually shooting though and just want a 42MP sensor, the A7Rii seems like a great budget solution.

Yup same company, and I have good experience shopping cameras/lenses and phones with them.

A7r iii is worth $1,000 more for pros, better battery, 2 card slot, joystick, better EVF and LCD, same 399 PDAF but 400 less CDAF, 10fps vs 5fps, better buffer (no lock up), 120fps on 1080p video. other than that same IQ imo. but not worth for hobbyist and landscape/real state work.

What no a7c? Considering retiring the a7r3 now that I have the iv as I miss sticking my camera in my pocket of my sweatshirt. The evf is so tall and the rubber is all rubbery.

An a5000 body would be better but with a giant off screen level sensor
