I can agree.With the big lens there is stuff I just would not get otherwise. On
this easy hike I had the 100-400mm for instance.
But doing a really strenuous hike it can become much to carry, as much as I
would like to have it. Also bike riding it is best to have a smaller system.
For me it depends on what my intention is. My main point was the advantage of
resolution at times. There are a lot of advantages of having a long lens for
landscape also. Just not on a hike where I'm doing good just to make it back to
As to resolution, there is a high percentage of photography where 20-24mpx is
plenty, and I still think some of my 12mpx 5D is enough. Stuff we share here is
generally 2mpx or less (1200x1600).
I have thought hard about the A7S iii for low noise, even though it is 12mpx.
Not sure I am so interested in the video though. But a lot of photography can
be done at 12mpx.
I find it wonderful there is so much one can explore these days with
photography. Judging what is best is just narrowing ones view. Please don't
take any of my opinions as anything other than me musing.
