In reply to:

rmbackus: That's very 'dark roast' indeed. The B&W picture doesn't look tasty to me: ink & charcoal.

You're right. You're are a relative ?

On article Video: Sony a7 III overview (223 comments in total)

I wished I had a spare 3.5K for this camera and 24-105.
Shall I then win a Dpreview challenge ?

Does nobody notice, that this is a very expensive camera ?
How many times did you buy a 5k camera ?

rmbackus: In photography 'bigger' is always 'better'. If it was not, we should go back to the old Minox camera again (8 x 11 mm), or even smaller.

Minox moved up when they found out 8 mm wouldn't work.
And I know it's a bad argument, but if large format were that worse, they would be cheaper or had disappeared already. But no, we accept the bulky camera's and pay the much higher price to get the picture quality. There are many books written full about the advantage of a larger film/sensor formats. I wish smaller was better.

rmbackus: I guess PhotoShopped ? The water has not a completely calm surface to reflect the trees in focus. On the other hand, the bird's reflection is razor sharp.

Already checked it...very nice !

I think the point of the beak and the eye should reflect exactly in a vertical line down.
