The best lenses for the Sony A7 III in 2024: good-quality lenses at realistic prices

Choosing the best lenses for the Sony A7 III means being realistic about the cost of the camera, what you shoot and how much you want to spend. Sony makes lots of fabulous G Master lenses, but these come with not-so fabulous prices and since the A7 III is at the lower end of the Sony Alpha price range, we reckon most users will want to keep the cost of lenses down.
