Engadget Review

Sony's full-frame, 42-megapixel A7R III is the king of mirrorless cameras, with category-leading resolution, low-light performance and video shooting capability. It also has an excellent electronic viewfinder and stellar autofocus capabilities with spot-on face detection and much-improved subject tracking. Battery life could be better and its menu system is still clunky, but this is nitpicking on an otherwise world-class camera.
