    Isn't that 24-105 an f/4?

    Yes, the kit lens - great range on it.

    I mainly use EF glass as I use the same lenses on my C300MKIII. On shoots I usually bring the Canon 100mm 2.8 macro, Tamron 24-70 2.8 with IS, an old 50mm Leica Summilux 1.4, Tamron 15-35 2.8 with IS, Tamron 35mm 1.4 and Canon 70-300 4-5.6. I don't see too many people using Tamron glass but their SP series of lenses are outstanding, just as sharp as Canon or Sigma and in some cases they're sharper. Their 35mm is known as the sharpest 35mm out there. One of the reasons I like them is that many of their lenses have IS and the autofocus seems to work just as good as the Canon lenses on my C300.

    +1 for Tamron 24-70 2.8

    It lives on my Speedboosted GH5 for 90% of clips and I also use it extensively for Canon 5D3 stills

    AF is really the only reason I can think of that would justify the switch.

    Or no-crop 4k60p.

    But yes - I could live with cropped 60p. I'm switching for AF.

    Or if you need 4K 120fps. There actually aren't a lot of cameras that can do full frame 4K capture at 120fps. And the A7S III does it with a 1:1 pixel readout so the resulting footage looks pretty clean from what we have seen so far. And it records sound in this mode.

    Even among higher-end cinema cameras, 4K 120fps isn't a super common feature. I think the Sony Venice can do this, but only in a 2.39:1 aspect ratio; for 17:9 or 16:9 aspect ratios, the maximum frame rate is lower. Alexa LF is a similar situation where the frame rates are limited when using the full sensor height for 16:9 or 17:9 capture. The RED cameras shoot higher frame rates with a sensor crop. The C300 Mark III and Ursa Mini Pro 4.6K can do 4K 120, but have Super 35 sensors.

    Once you start pushing higher shutter speeds needed for higher frame rates, the additional light gathering of the larger sensor can often be helpful.

    So for people that do a lot of slow motion, the A7S III seems like the best option at the price point. And probably by a pretty decent margin.
