Thanks, all.  I have not located a Sony Pro service center in the Atlanta, Georgia, USA area, and I just learned that Sony lenses are FBW.  So my interest has waned.  The good part is that my bad experiences with Canon service seem to be anomalous, so that's encouraging.

I haven’t found much to complain about with the FBW. The focus rings at least in the lenses I use (Zeiss Batis 25, 85, and Sony 24-70 GM; my next will likely be the 100-400 GM, but I’m waiting to see how the RIII does with teleconverters. The A9 maintains PDAF even with max aperture of f/11. The RII reverts to CDAF, and I’ve not been able to determine how the RIII behaves) don’t really reveal the lack of mechanical linkage. In fairness I rarely focus manually, but when I do the ability to zoom in in a high-res EVF makes more of a difference than would a mechanical focus system.
