    could be - might want to rent before buying. (B&H and Adorama have a 30 day return policy)

    I had a Cannon 6D Mark II and switched to a Sony A7III. I wish I had gotten the Sony instead of the Cannon. It was a pain buying new Sony lenses, but it was worth it.

    WHY ?

    Any switch is based upon a need, or a perceived need.
    But a change can also expose a weakness in the new system, if you don't catch it before purchasing.
    Example, I was going to switch from a Nikon D7200 to an Olympus EM1.
    But, it turned out that the EM1 was not capable of shooting fast sports like the D7200 could. So I did not leave Nikon, and ended up with a dual Olympus+Nikon system. Most of my shooting is with the EM1, but fast sports are shot with the D7200.
    This was almost the worst of both options, as running two different systems is expensive.​
    A full system change is EXPENSIVE, as you have to get all new lenses and replace all the other dedicated items, such as flash, wired remotes, etc.
    Lenses and accessories. Canon dSLR has a mature lens landscape, I do not know if Sony has reached that point with the A7 where you can find all the native lenses that you want.
