Sony Alpha 7R III + Sony FE 24-70mm f/4 ZA OSS Vario-Tessar T*
Sony SLT-A58 + Sony DT 18-55mm
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
6.screen resolution

1440k dots

460k dots

A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.

Optics

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
2.focus points

425

15

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
3.sensor size

24 x 35.9mm

23.5 x 15.6mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
4.has AF tracking
Sony Alpha 7R III + Sony FE 24-70mm f/4 ZA OSS Vario-Tessar T*
Sony SLT-A58 + Sony DT 18-55mm
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
6.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Sony Alpha 7R III + Sony FE 24-70mm f/4 ZA OSS Vario-Tessar T*
