Dan and Sally Watson: Sony a7RIII vs Nikon D850 vs Canon 5D Mark IV

Kind of an interesting comparison by Dan and Sally, because Dan likes the D850 for the photos they were shooting, but Sally picks the Sony a7RIII as having the best skin tones. The cameras are very back and forth, with the Canon being the most behind the times and the Nikon having the worst live view performance. Of course, the Sony is smaller and lighter than the Canon and Nikon, but it comes with disadvantages like it being easy to press buttons by accident. Sally picks the Sony a7RIII as her favorite to shoot with and her overall favorite thanks to the skin tones. On the other hand, Dan picks the Nikon D850 as being great overall for photography, but since he has hybrid shooting needs the Sony a7RIII is his winner.

It’s kind of interesting how the post-Sony a9 performance of Sony cameras is really shifting photographers to Sony. The Sony a9 was basically too much for most photographers, but the implementation of its technology in the a7 series of cameras and future a6xxx cameras will certainly make Sony the top pick for many photographers. Maybe in another generation or two Sony will fix their UI and handling issues, but AF, skin tones, video, etc… is all there today. Sony might even fix everything by the time they release a Sony a9R, who knows.
