So in 2019 I decided to buy the A7RIII loved it but then a year later after wanting to burn sony central service (Europe) down for being useless, I decided if you want something done for a sane cost just do it your self and then spread your results online as much as you can.

So here is what I have learned after having a filter stack degraded and my mic port broke don't use methanal only use 99% isopropanol and you dont have to be super delicate with it just don't stab it and if it does degrade or get scratches it's a 150GBP repair more or less and if your doing video in any real long term use capacity use the K3M Xlr or an external recorder or something the mic port is not built to last.

Sony A7RIII filter stack information
1.6mm mm thick (combined)
1.2mm top stack
4.0mm bottom stack
36.8mm wide
19.6mm high
Adhesive 0.4-0.5mm thick (Model: 9448A From 3M is a viable replacement)

Bare Sensor Clear Glass Covering (yes cleanable very dust attractive clean chamber highly advised if replacing a filter stack also very impact sensitive yes I chipped it while in storage...)
47.6mm wide
42.5mm tall
60.1mm across

(Prices subject to geographic region and import fees and sellers)

3.5mm Headphone/Microphone Ports (10-20USD per unit)
Contact Pins (lens control/power pins) (14-20USD per unit)
Optical Filter Stack (UV/IR cut or hot mirror colour filter) (40-100USD per unit) (not provided by sony or sold as a part but is available)
LCD Screen Replacement (20-30USD per unit)
Service Mecha Device (Sensor/Shutter/Core Body) (300-800USD model dependent)
Mechanical Shutter Unit Replacement (70-100USD model dependent)

All in all identical to the #A7III but with a cable for the Sync port all screws are standard and there are no ''warranty'' stickers or anything thermal pad strips can be removed too without any need to replace hasn't run into issues without them in even 25-32c heat and it makes servicing easier filter stack hold down is unesssrasy due to strength of adhesive and does not need to be absolutely re-inserted but watch out for the CMOS/IBIS module spacers.

Bare sensor photo I took on a Minolta 7D and 17-70 F2.8-F4 feel free to do so as you want as I have posted this to the A7RIII wiki page too.
