Excellent shot that shows the "power' of B&W pictures.

huyzer: Dear Eric,

I'm curious why there is mottling over the image. Is it blurred foreground foliage?

Merci pour votre explication qui aura comblé notre perplexité...

I used to shoot (film) Leica when I was a pro, I wouldn't buy one now- crazy overpriced digital vanity cameras. It looks tacky, too.

@cgarrar,
No sense of humor ? Frankly, I do not care about education lessons from a grinch...

Karroly: What kind of photographer has enough time to count the stars in his/her pictures ?
What is sure, is that this camera can see much more stars than my naked eyes. I really do not care if some are eaten in the process...

@SilvanBromide,
I do not have a problem at all. This is rather astrophotographers who have a problem with the A7R III. :-) And I find it bordering on ridiculous too...

WGChsv: “Our competition has backside illuminated sensors, lets make back side illuminated buttons!”

I am sorry but this is a patented joke. Please see my comment at the very bottom of this thread ;-)

I hope you spell French as well as I spell English ;-) I would be glad to know where I failed, then your comment would be more useful. Thank you... :-)

Petak: Wow, illuminated buttons - the DSLR manufacturers remain on the bleeding edge of technology !!! Wonder what's next - touch screens perhaps?

This backside-illuminated technology brought to the buttons !
I think I am going to patent the "BSI button" term before Canon...

I guess your point is just to make a joke ?
Because I am pretty sure that one can turn the backlight off to be discrete, or to not drain the battery too fast...

So far, three, and room for two more...

bcvthul: I expect:

2 the new Sony
1 nikon d850

So no canon camera in this list??!!

@kreislauf,
I agree with you. Personally, if I look from time to time the galleries of very high-end cameras to see what top-notch technology can do, I most often look at the galleries of cameras I can afford. So the result of this top ten challenge can be a little bit different from the DPR test ranking/awards.

@chaos215bar2
"...that *all* of the detail of the scene you've taken the time and effort to find and frame for the world to see is captured"
This is the central question for me : what kind/level of details are you talking about ? If these are the details you can see with your naked eyes, then the camera records much more details and the resulting picture is not natural. So where is the limit ? If even the faintest stars could be recorded, I am afraid the results would be a serious mess. I agree with someone else who said that some contrast must remain between the stars and some dark areas of the sky to better showcase the interesting stars. As an example, too many visible stars surrounding constellations "hide" them. If your goal is to see as much stars as possible, and much more than the naked eyes can see, then ask for a camera that turns infra-red and ultra-violet light, X and gamma rays, into false colors too... ;-) Or turn long exposure noise reduction off ;-).

Oh, I did not notice it at first glance... I understand what you mean now.

Then I formulate my question another way. Do you, astrophotographers, take starry nightshots to record beautiful nightscapes or to count stars? Are you artists or book-keepers ? Do you really think that some missing stars turn a beautiful nightshot into a piece of junk ? If you think so, I pity you...

Peter Houtman: Thank you DPreview for highlighting this longstanding and unresolved issue. Not sure why Sony has not properly addressed this (even as an option), and hope this publicity will encourage a more positive approach towards the Sony using astro community, in my case A7Rii (the extent of the problem in practice is debatable, but no excuse not to improve the algorithm.)

OK, then why should I need to count the stars ? My naked eyes cannot see as many stars as the A7R III can, so why should I care it eats some of them ? Or is a star-counter the other name of a pixel-piper in astrophotography?

Given the picture resolution and file size, it is more likely the result of a too strong compression, and the mottling actually looks like compression artifacts...

Are you serious ? Are you retired, or unemployed, to have enough time to count the stars in your pictures ?

@Mescalamba,
Then this is the proof that technology does not matter for Leica buyers, but only price, brand, red dot and to be seen carrying a Leica camera ... ;-)
