I still don't think anyone will be using a smartphone to shoot a wedding, for commercial photography, for sports/action photography, or for fashion photography, but this device is now the ideal choice for travel photography, vacation photography, family photography, or for casual snapshots.

I regularly use a focal length range of 8mm fisheye (sometimes panoramas using the fisheye) through 400mm equivalent or more for family and travel photography. I have used over 1200mm equivalent for that.

I could never be happy with 28mm equivalent for much of anything. Without focal length range photography is as much fun for me as oral surgery. If I were stuck with a single prime, I'd rather not shoot at all.

You may not agree, but the fact remains... a lot of people are perfectly happy with their smartphone cameras, and new camera sales are feeling the pressure of that.

I don't care about "a lot of people" as I'm not them - I'm an enthusiast. I actually care about this stuff.

Two examples (of hundreds) from a recent trip.

My wife's Galaxy S8:

This is a silly comparison because your wife's phone lacks the proper equipment to create the same photo. The same way that your camera with a 70-200mm lens could not compete with the wide angle lens on aa smartphone. Get one of the many telephoto lenses made for smartphones and try this again.
