The Newly Announced Sony a7R III Has No Appeal To I.
The a7R — the HIGH RESOLUTION monster — would be totally useless to me. I rarely print images. 99.9% of the pictures I take are for Web consumption — mainly here — and for that I have to DOWNSAMPLE anyway by a factor of at least 4!
That is why I will be hesitant to think about anything beyond my current 24MP — though I have a horrible feeling I might have to confront that somewhere down the road.
So 42MP is way outside my scope of interest.
The Sony a9, as I said before, rather than being a case of ‘sour grapes’, is also WAY more than I would ever need. I RARELY use continuous drive! Just don’t like it. I like to TRY and time my pictures. That is so much more satisfying. Continuous drive to I, is like post processing — something I detest. You take the pictures and then go back and see which ones came out ‘OK’. Not my cup of tea.
But, NOT a bad thing. I will stick to my a7 II and wait to see what the a7 III might promise.
