My bad, it was for the lens

Okay then I wloud recommend you the Canon R6 with the Rf 24-105m F4.

I'm a totally noob in camera world. My budget's gonna work around my requirements, that is:

  • High resolution pictures
  • Landscape Photography as primary, part-time free style
  • Low-light dependability 

I have set my eyes on Sony A7III with 16-35 f/2.8. I looked into EOS R too, but it's not that appraising.
I can't exceed 4K USD, less would be better. Any good third party lens?

I am a Canon User since I startet Photograhpy and Videography and never had complains. So I would go with the R. The Problem that you have with Sony at the Moment is that they just released High End Full Frame Cameras in the last time. The A7 III is 3-4 Years old at this point and so I would not buy it. But on the other Hand the EOS R is more expensive and the RF Lenses are expensive to. But it is rumored that 3rd party Rf lenses will some out by the end of the Year. Samyang already has released their first rf lenses.

If you wnat good Low Light Performance I would go with something that has a smaller MP count becouse that is allways better for Low Light Pictures.

I can recommend you the Canon EOS R6. But what is your Budget?

Body 2K USD max, gonna buy a single lens, so going all out with 2K USD for the lens
Lack of IBIS and the crop factor influenced me a bit too considering doing videos is not a never-do

Okay the R6 has great IBS and oversampeled 4k Video but it cost more than 2k Body only I think. And getting an Rf lens and body for 2k is going to be hard to get. THe RP maybe your best choice. It is cheaper than the R so you have more money to spend on a good Lens (Canon RF 24-105 F4). But it has worst video specs than the R. But if i am honest from reading what you want I think this or an R would be the best choice. As far as I know your not doing this Professional and are more focused on Photography so I think the Problems that the R and RP have are not that big of a deal for you since they basically just exsist in the Video Side of things.

For me, colors are not factoring much as i'm gonna shoot raw anyway.
In most cases, my shots will be in dawn dusk conditions, cloudy and naturally lit indoor stuff.
Won't the sony one will be better?

I'd stay away from the A7III due to the shutter issue.

 

If your budget is $4,000 all-in, I'd suggest an A7rIII with the Tamron 17-28mm 2.8. That leaves you with about $1,000 USD to spare.

 

 I have the A7rIII and it's a landscape photograph's dream (that's what I do pretty much exclusively).

 

 I had the 16-35mm 2.8 GM lens, but I sold it and got the Tamron 17-28mm 2.8 instead.

I really like Tamron's new stuff. Their 15-30 g2 is supposed to be really nice. I'm a Nikon shooter so I cant compare against Sony but I like the image stabilization in Tamron lenses more than Nikon. 

 

If you want to go for high resolution and landscape fast primes typically have better corner sharpness. You do have to zoom with your feet though. Zeiss makes a really good 35mm f2. The 21 2.8 is a go to for me for landscapes. Even their last generation is awesome and you can get it for cheap.

If you're handy with basic tools at all there are a ton of old primes from different brands you can use on modern cameras.
