And no, the A7 Mark 4 is not an entry level, it’s a fully competent camera. Moreover the price is 2699 not 3000. Name a camera better than this one, for a similar or lower price.
And don’t name old generation cameras anymore: they are cheaper cause they are older but they are not better.
Come on you are not even trying, you are just repeating something you read somewhere on the internet

Other brands at this price range releases proffesional cameras not entry level ones thus better ones.
And still Mark III by cannon is best camera money can buy unless you own James Webber telescope successor of Hubble telescope but you cant take that one to the wild to capture nature aye???

The 6D mark 2 and the D750, while good, are now old compared to a camera just released. Their sensors have lower resolution, much less dynamic range (in the case of the canon), vastly inferior AF system and video capabilities among other things.

The nikon Z5 is a very good camera, but a lower tier compared to the Sony, the video capabilities are just ok and the AF system is not as good

So, there you have it

You just keep spamming its better.

This clown here really has no argument, brings in cameras that are inferior and claims they are superior. Claims that FF entry cameras are $100-$500, then brings minimum $1k cameras. He's cheefing on that good stuff.

You initially said that there are entry cameras that are $100-$500 and then list minimum $1000 cameras. You claimed that they perform better than the A7IV, but they are still inferior.

You then made false comparisons when you didn't actually have an argument. This discussion is over, you clearly don't know what you're talking about, you have no argument, and extremely inconsistent.

Anonymous, 24 Oct 2021I doubt you have the Z50, but if you do then its time to RTFM. I doubt, you have tried the S21 Ultra!

Nikon D750: $1,696.95
Panasonic Lumix S5: $1,997.99
Nikon Z5: $1,296.95

So which one of these are $100-$500 FF cameras like you said earlier? None of these are in that range at all. Thank you for proving that you have no idea what you're talking about and only here to hate on Sony.

BTW the first two cameras you mentioned are vastly inferior to the A7IV, and the Z5 and S5 are still somewhat inferior, but are much closer. Sony still beats both in terms of AF tho.

Man those cameras cost half the price of Sony.
For 3000 bucks sony is asking for that A7 Cannon or Nkon or Panasonic or Olympus etc can make 2-3 times better camera with 3000 price range.
Just because compared to Sony they doesnt overprice as much.

For litterary same price Canon EOS R5 does a many times better job.
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV also does many times better job and cost 1200 less.
Nikon D780 or Nikon Z7 II also does more tricks for less.

And when comes to real camera capabilities Cannon Mark III is the best camera money can buy nowdays.

And ye your camera under 500 just to let you know Nikon D3400 maybe its not better than your desired Sony but cost 8 times less so for like 450 bucks one can get outstanduing camera for begginers which is almost as good as Sony A7 IV.

CptPower, 24 Oct 2021Man you funny a lot. Durability is based on quality of th... more"Chinese porcelain from ming Dynasty cpst thousdants but one drop to a concrete and is good for bin."

Just stop with the Faulty Comparisons, these are not even related. Glass quality on a lens is much different than porcelain. You have no argument here, lens have optics to worry about as well which porcelain don't.

"Same like with phones. Better glass. When dropped for 2M height it breaks rgardless the brand and device. Even so called rugged phones are ruged on sides and back of the phone but front glass have litterary same durability as any other phone."

What garbage are you on? Why are you talking about phones? This is a FF camera, again stop with the false comparison.

"Man you funny again when dropped on concrete phone screen breaks only difference were Motorola with its shatterproof screens since then all screen braks droppedon concrete even by accident. All difference matters whendropped from half metre or so. From height of human ears without gorrila glass or GG Victus doesnt matter phone will breaks.
Victus will have less scratches and broken oplaces but breaks.
Thus to your so called quality."

You're logic is extremely fallacious, again comparing phones and screen durability to Lens optics. Not the same, and aren't related. It seems you don't know what logic is.

"So man to your FF cameras: 1. Canon EOS 6D Mark II this one is definitely better and cost way less.
Next one Nikon D750, Panasonic Lumix S5 and Nikon Z5 one of best moeny can buy and doesnt cost a fortune."

Canon EOS 6D Mark II: $1,399.00
Nikon D750: $1,696.95
Panasonic Lumix S5: $1,997.99
Nikon Z5: $1,296.95

SuuperBaka, 24 Oct 2021"Entry level camera cost 100 maybe 500 not 3000."... moreMan you funny a lot.
Durability is based on quality of the glass, a higher quality glass will be more durable than a glass of lower quality at the same thickness. Glass breaks. Chinese porcelain from ming Dynasty cpst thousdants but one drop to a concrete and is good for bin.
Same like with phones. Better glass. When dropped for 2M height it breaks rgardless the brand and device. Even so called rugged phones are ruged on sides and back of the phone but front glass have litterary same durability as any other phone.

You repeating the same garbage argument and while being completely wrong. Glass Quality matters, you will never find a $100-$500 camera with similar abilities for the A7IV. It's painfully clear that your hate for Sony has deluded you beyond extremes.

Find me an entry level FF camera that can do what the A7IV can do for $100-$500. What kind of delusion are you on? What FF camera costs $100?

"Glass is glass and its breaks, plastic is plastic and it breaks something like a quality plastic or quality glass exist but the durability is litterary same unless is bulletproof or something like that."

Durability is based on quality of the glass, a higher quality glass will be more durable than a glass of lower quality at the same thickness.

Please do more research about the topic.

Entry level camera cost 100 maybe 500 not 3000.
And for 3000 any other brand can do better for one major reason they doesnt overprice as much as Sony and some other brands.

Glass is glass and its breaks, plastic is plastic and it breaks something like a quality plastic or quality glass exist but the durability is litterary same unless is bulletproof or something like that.
Fact has been said. Sony ggreatly overpricing. Litterary genuinely same device from a not Sony brand would cost half to make and half in final sale for customers.
Only Sony is asking 30 to ťé% more for a company logo on the device.
But the company logo doesnt add nothing extra its just a company logo.
