That's right: the thread is on why you wouldn't buy a IV.

It's not a specs or features comparison. It's about how the IV, the III and the others actually perform for you as a tool. It's not about differences per se. That's for the marketers and fan boys.

Earlier this year some extra money came my way and I decided to spend it on camera gear. I have a A7ii that has been with me since 2015 and on dozens of journeys and gatherings and walks. It has supplied me with thousands of images, a few good enough for my wall, and hundreds good enough for our scrapbooks. I considered the A7iii, the A7Rii, the A7Riii, and the A7Riv. I decided against extra pixels mainly for storage and processing management and speed. So my reasons for not buying the R4 were simply money and belief that more than 24MP were not beneficial to me for my purposes. I made the right choice for me.
