Re: It's even easier to justify than that

How many megapixels does the A7r2 have?

You nearly got me there ... it is hard to resist such number magics ... but I will stay with my A7 for a while until there is a not too expensive full frame camera with much better tracking autofocus.

Sure, I sometimes miss in-camera stabilisation and I would be better served with a less reflective sensor, but for now the A7 is my camera!

For what you do, and how you do it. . . you're a role model IMO.

42mp can be a crutch, too.   I'm using it to avoid zooms, and just take advantage of the crop ability as is necessary.   Well, for the on the go sort of practices, at least.   And then there's the demand on computer resources, especially if using uncompressed RAW.

The last full moon this spring before the midnight sun enters the sky in Svalbard at 78 degrees north - my A7 does an excellent job even at night in the icy cold polar climate. Panorama from four frames. 21 mm lens. Plenty of detail for close inspection of a 2-3 meter wide high quality print!

I can't quite express how much I admire work like this, and this particularly.
