Re: Sure, the A7 still makes sense for a lot of work

Nice pics Magnar.

I suppose an a7 is fine, but maybe the a7R is the way to go, really depends on price I guess.

Out of the 3, the a7R is definitely the best for landscapes & astro right?

The A7r has higher resolution, but be aware that because of "shutter shock" you might not be able to take advantage of all this resolution within some of the shutter speed range.

But in general, yes, the A7r resolution is welcome for landscape photography. The extra resolution do not offer that much extra for astrophotography, though, especially in the telephoto range, due to seeing conditions and turbulent air.

My take is: Go for the camera you really want!
