You can assume there will be some element of hype to the specs though - Sony do this as well, like the rather useless (IMO) 240mp mode on the A7RIV.

Well - the images are much cleaner and the color saturation is higher and the noice almost completely fades away at base ISO.

In case you do product photography or architecture and some limited landscape photography you might find it very attractive.

I did some initial tests and the results are not mind blowing different but very visible in my own tests.

The question is whether the huge data amount is justifiable - since storage prices only go down there is no negative side to it.

I did already 15 shots with my Tilt and Shift lenses on my 5D II and the results match single shots on my A7R III
