I'm not finding this quickly.

What does the "A" at the end of some a7r III's (and others) mean? And if it's some kind of update that is less than the next version, what kinds of things are updated?

I currently have an a7r III that I got in 2019. It's still ok, though it has at least one thing that needs to be fixed. A quote is $585 depending on what parts need replacing, though what I found after I got the quote might change it.

So I'm considering whether it's worth fixing (there are some other things so I'll first try doing some deep cleaning, and a reset, and the last firmware update which I didn't do because I don't have Sony flashes, but I see there's another item in it).

I wouldn't mind having the focus-stacking feature (not sure how well that works without a tripod, but propped, since I do mainly macros of tiny things and almost always need to use flash because of low light. But I'd rather be paying closer to $2000+-. I don't think I need more MP, especially in terms of storage.

The "A" variant is the same as the original a7R III, except for the higher-resolution (2.36M-dot) LCD.
The "A" variant of the a7R IV is the same as the original model, but with a higher resolution (2.36M-dot) LCD.
