Yesterday myself and quite a few other people had a 45 minutes hands on with the new Sony A7R III as well as the same amount of time with the Sony A9 and new 24-105 F4 G series lens.
They had set up a few shooting places to test them out, by far the most interesting was actor Albert Tang smoking a vape pipe with two profoto flash heads. With this I used the 70-200 F2.8 GM. You can see full resolution examples on my flickr here
You can also download them (no raws yet sorry as they aren’t supported by any software) here
I also shot very quickly 3 shots in video using HLG 2 which you can download here.
It wasn’t anywhere enough time to evaluate it but from my brief experience I loved the stills and much improved speed over the A7R II. The autofocus is much improved and the battery life is way better.
Video is so hard to say. I shot full frame and one quick shot in S35. They both looked great. All the shots are used the HDR Hybrid Log Gama 2 setting. It’s all I had time to use.
I hope to get my hands on one soon for some proper testing especially in video mode. Yes the lack of 4K 50p/60p hurts as does it only being 8 bit BUT the image looks superb and it has a lot going for it video wise plus the incredible stills. So far I am very impressed.
The 24-105 G F4 looked great. Autofocus was snappy, constant aperture felt true with no darkening as I zoomed in unlike the Canon one. Manual focus was OK, better than the usual focus by wire. The below photos are with the Sony 9. Full resolution examples are here
