hi just my personal opinion as a still shooter only

1) first one must be that flippy screen feels like it will break off anytime soon plus shooting low from the ground dose not work as well as the old screen.

2) slow when shooting lossless RAW. I think Sony was worried about the A1 sales here

3) drains battery faster

4) bigger grip hurts my finger with heavy lenses some how my finger gets stuck somewhere :)

all the good stuff you guys know the better AF extra pixels better built quality

is it worth upgrading from A7iii for portraits wedding not really IMHO unless you shoot videos.

for birds the bird eye AF works flawlessly.

This is all compared to the A7m3, I assume.

1) Same experience with my Canon G1x3 and EOS R.
2) My A7r4 is slowish at times with compressed RAW.... Might be the memory cards being almost full.
3) CIPA scores - A7iii: 710; A7iv: 580; A9: 650. SO, CIPA agrees with you
4) I guess the grip is the same as my A7r4 as it uses the same vertical grip. I find it fine.

I understand the eye AF is better and the low light AF also is better - that might be better for some wedding photographers.

Nice bird
