    A great camera with a few flaws that has really taken it up to the big boys in the top end full-frame DSLR market. Has every right to be considered a major contender by anybody looking to move into high end hardware. Will convert some pro photographers to mirrorless full-frame but I suspect not all. Read more

    Sony were under pressure with the release of the Nikon Z and EOS R, but the Sony Alpha mirrorless cameras are still king of the hill. Depending on your needs, you wouldn't go wrong with either the A7III or A7RIII. Read more

    This model has some great improvements over my old a99– but I miss the panorama ability when travelling abroad. I have also found the viewfinder sometimes skips a beat when in high resolution mode; it is fine when not in the high setting. Read more
