munn1: When I travel now (by air), I only take a Platypod w ball head. It is light, easy to pack or carry in your camera bag, gives you a really low point of view, and it's super stable, or you can strap it to a tree or lamp post, although this part would fail with a D5 / 70-200 combo, however, there is usually a trash can or railing to set it on if you look around.

The basic use case here is if I ever travel back to Tuolomne Meadows, where my 6-inch Platypod got overshadowed by 2 foot high grass.

Narrow enough for a daypack, tall enough it can get clearance over ground cover.

Huh, that's a backpack tripod.

Mind you, I love, love, love my Feisol CT3442 with center column as a 6'4" person, but that's... tempting.

Something for hiking.

tex: Curious that the category "around $2K" got left out....jumps from $1500.00 to more than double that....

@HowAboutRAW:

That was more of a joke that, just like this article hints at, there's an enormous gap where there's nothing I want to spend 2 vacations worth of money on that's also a DSLR.

Either I'd want to go way up to at least a D810 or get a 6D and an extra lens.

/And yes, a mild degree of "And it still takes good pictures".

A7 III, no questions asked.

lakkot: The output looks amazing! But the price though....

The 24-105 lens on Sony is a little more expensive than the lens on Canon, but the body is just a little bit cheaper.

Directly comparable.

Unfortunately, directly comparable to the A7 III.

I'm doing a trip to the bottom of the Grand Canyon next April, and I want to buy one with the 24-105, then rent a single EF-mount wide-angle lens.

On article Sony a7 III Review (2195 comments in total)
In reply to:

Magnar W: At this year's Nordic Light International Photo Ferstival, Kristiansund, Norway, there were a lot of Sony users, also many A7III cameras. Many DSLR users also talked about getting rid of their heavy and bulky cameras. I have never seen so many Sony cameras among professional and dedicated amateur photographers earlier years.

I'm not sure that there's a difference between this at 22 oz and a Nikon or Canon at 27.

Now the a6500 down at 16... Yes, that makes a difference.

But I don't think I'd care about the weight differential *here*.

/Debating whether to get this or the a6500 as my first real camera.
