Those are obviously valid points made by the three of you. But I'm still troubled by the word "fake" used by the OP and the choice of comparative photos. I could be wrong, but sensor size factors may come into play in the first example and digital vs optical may come into play in the second, but these do not seem to tell the whole story. So I would still like further clarification of what is the point.
