Funny. My last camera was a 60D. I've been wanting to make the jump too but can't justify it yet given my situation. Definitely will in the future though, looks awesome!

Congratulations on getting such an awesome camera - - - I know, I love mine!

Looks like you already have some great lens to use until you start picking up native glass. When using the 18-35mm Sigma, did you shoot in crop mode or crop at the image level? Some APS-C lens will cover most to full-frame image sensor, but not many.

The 18-35mm went to APS-C mode. Can you stop it from going to aps-c? Just to see how bad the vignetting is?

I only have one APS-C lens (for my A6300) and haven't tried it yet on the A7RIII, but this should get you to the correct menu setting (set it to manual in menu 1/14):

Congrats! Mind blowing camera.

Look at this with a G-master lens at ISO 2000:

Prairie Dog Sentry by David Stephens, on Flickr

The dynamic range and resolution give you so much leeway to raise ISO with almost no noise or loss of detail or shoot at ISO 50 to get incredible dynamic range. Backlit in strong light, like this shot, no problemo. Break all the rules of you old body to learn the full capacity of this body.

Yes, the G-Master lenses are incredibly sharp and lighter than other full-frame counterparts. I've got the 24-70mm f/2.8, the 100-400/f4.5-5.6 and the 12-24/f4 G, along with the FE 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters. The only Canon lens I'm keeping is my EF 14mm f/2.8L II, which is astounding for Milky Well shots, using all 15-stops of the a7RIII's dynamic range.
