Depends honestly. If you want to wait a while, a7r V is probably coming out this year, which would drive prices down. The a7r IV revision a is better than the a7r IV; they finally upgraded the back LCD, which sucked. But it still has the old menu system and non-lossless raws.

If you're comparing higher end lenses, the Nikon and Sony are about the same, but the Z mount lenses are very expensive, while Sony has many more third party choices. You could adapt older Nikon lenses but that usually results in heavier gear and older optics.

In terms of usage, Sony sucks to use. It is absolutely, and by a huge margin, the worst of the cameras in terms of that. Does that impact quality or usability? No, but don't expect it to feel as comfortable or snappy as others. I'd be aware of that and probably try it out (and program the keys) to see if you're ok with it.

If you're going for higher end lenses, like the Z mount 24-70 f/2.8 or Sony equivalent, the GM, then pricing doesn't really matter, nor does the weight. But if you wanted a cheaper, lighter setup, Sony has the Sigma 28-70, 24-70, and Tamron 28-75, which neither Canon nor Nikon has.

Canon is ridiculously overpriced right now for the R5 but the RF series lenses are pretty incredible and without peer (at the high end); ex: the 24-70 f/2. So you can make your mind up on that.

In terms of image quality, Nikon actually beats the Sony a bit and trades blows in other areas. They have ISO 65 which is great for landscape photography. Sony has resolution though, if you crop a lot like I do. Sony's Eye AF is by far the best, but Nikon and Canon are more than usable.

If you're looking for an all rounder, the Sony is honestly the best of the choices, especially since you said you wanted to be able to do sports in a pinch. None of the others can match up to Sony's AF. In terms of video quality, its the worst but it's still not bad.
Nice price on the Z5 - far enough below the Z6 that it's worth considering. But I'd skip the kit lens and find a used 24-70 f/4. Plenty of those out there.
Go to mirrorless.

Looking to upgrade from my D3400. Still trying to decide if I should go the DSLR route with a D500, D750, D850, or jump over to mirrorless.

I did the jump from a D750 to a Z5; if you haven't handled them side by side yet, I'd head over to your local photography store and do so. If you have and still undecided, rent one out for a week (the Z5 has a $50/week program w/the kit lens) and see.

My qualm with switching over to mirrorless was really with the lack of the pentaprism (WYSIWYG), but after living with the EVF for a week, found it was a better experience, especially in low light.

Z7 or A7R IV? I have the edu discount at B&h. Seems like the A7R IV is better, but any reason to go Nikon?

FYI, Amazon has a few of the Z5 24-200 kit in stock for $1696. That's a great deal.

Mostly landscape and portrait of faces. Maybe once in a while sports. Videos also when needed. Really looking for a camera to do it all. But mainly landscape and portrait of people's faces.

And I am using Canon lens now. But Canon has lost my favor over the years due to their lack of innovation. I have been looking to jump ship for a while now.

Can someone recommend the ideal lens for a newbie who wants to take this hiking? Not so much for wildlife, but I live in southern california and I like taking pictures of the trail, and scenic mountain vistas and things like that. It doesn't have to be a lens offered in a package here, just curious what you experienced folks would recommend. Thanks!

I can't disagree with anything said here - excellent post for any one choosing between Sony and Nikon. In terms of caliber of photography, it's a wash - you can't loose going either way. Perhaps the upper performance tiers of photographers reach into the discerners of which camera is better (i.e., AF on the Sony, low-ISO on the Nikon, etc.), but that ain't me - amateur through and through. Wave

For me, it came down to Nikon's handling (disclaimer: I've gotten used to the multitude of Nikons I've owned in the past); so recommendation still applies: if you're able to rent or otherwise get the bodies on loan - you can see which interface you prefer. I've got a lot of friends that love and shoot Sony (and I can't see why - so you see it's very subjective).

I am by no means a professional photographer, but I went from a Nikon D7000 to a Sony A7iii. I really appreciate the plethora of Sony e mount lenses out there from brands like Tamron and Samyang/Rokinon but they are still quite expensive. I don't have the budget for Sony G master lenses so thats nice that there are so many third party available. With that being said, while Sony AF is the best, I still cannot get used to/like Sony color rendition. It's the biggest downside by far when comparing to the other two brands. I personally love Canon body/lenses the best but even nikon colors are so much better than Sony. My dad has the Z6 and when compared to my Tamron 28-75mm 2.8, the 24-70 Nikon is sharper and a great overall lens. The color rendering alone is making me want to switch back to Nikon. What do you guys think I should do? Thinking about Z7.

I would like to use the following lenses:

35mm 1.4
Some type of telephoto like 24-200.
85mm 1.8/1.4
Macro. Sigma 105? Nikon? Still have a Tokina 100mm in my old bag I can probably use.

Z5 + 24-200 for $1700 is a steal.
