How's everyone enjoying the A7RIII? Suitable replacement for the GH5 yet? The GH5S upgrade was so lukewarm I'd rather wait for the GH6. It's really hard to nail White Balance on either unless you use that Better White Balance from Peter Gregg.

I've never touched either of them, but I can't imagine 8-bit 4:2:0 out of the Sony, could hold a candle to 10-bit 4:2:2 from the Panasonic.

Low light would be the A7 strengths, it has been used in Brian Cox documentaries on the BBC with the Northern Lights and stars in the night sky as he does a piece to camera.

 Hey Brian, are you referring to the A7S II?  I wasn't aware that the A7R III had that sort of low-light ability.
