Using a Zeiss Batis 135mm lens imposed some constraints but I very much like this lens.
I am due to visit Belfast within a few days and the last time I was there, early 2019, I had a bad fall and damaged two or three ribs as well as my Sony A7RIII camera and my Voigtlander 40mm lens. Not long after that fall I purchased a Sony A7RIV and even though I intended to use the RIII as a backup body I never used it again mainly because I could not get geo-tagging to work. In general I preferred the newer body.
When I visited Kilkenny earlier this year both my Sony A7RIV and iPhone overheated. Ever since the Sony had given weird random problems and has become somewhat annoying to use so I decided to give the RIII another go and much to my surprise I got, after a lot of effort, geo-tagging to work [not 100% reliable but acceptable]. If I switch off the camera it is necessary to reset Bluetooth.
I know that many claim that the A7RIII produces better images and that it is not worth paying the extra for the RIV and I can see why after using the MKIII today.
