I like the Tower of London image very much.

Nice framing, but really, the bin should have been aligned to provide better symmetry
I love to recorded the Old-Beautiful House in the rural small townMe too ... they have so much character and there is something endearing about them ... not like the same boring/photocopied houses in the cities and suburbs.
Me on the Big Old Bike,Hi Surapon ... nice one ... you look like James Bond on a mission
Hmmm.....What am I missing? Since most of the discussion here centers on landscape photography and DR, why not bracket the exposures and use a restrained HDR approach, or even combine the shots manually in Photoshop to optimize detail? Granted this would not work perfectly in every situation (windy conditions -- waving plants, or at the coast with moving waves or wildlife in motion), but it might help to level the playing field. Also, suppressing noise in the shadows with a Photoshop plug-in should help, too. Admittedly an extra step, but better than spending $2400 plus purchasing an unreliable adaptor. Just sayin'.............For almost 2 years I have used "restrained HDR approach" with my 5D MK III and I like it very much. However for those who are not interested in HDR (even if it is "restrained") there are several benefits to having a Sony a7R
There are a couple of special naitive lenses available that are not useful on any other cameraThe FE lenses can be used and are also useful on all of the 11 other Sony mirrorless Cameras (in addition to a7/a7R), and 7 Sony Camcorders ... i.e those 4 full frame lenses currently available, are useful on 20 Sony cameras without any adapters.
I always manage to find people who's opinions encourage me to spend more money!Welcome to the club brother
but do you notice a significant improvement in general image quality and DR over your 5D III?Absolutely! ... but the a7R is even more awesome for landscapes, the difference between that and the 5D MK III is significant.
Resolution - 21MP used to be BIG, it's become about average now. I often print landscapes large and would love not to have to interpolate. The extra detail offered by higher resolution is always going to benefit my images, regardless.Welcome to CR.
ISO - It's true I shoot predominantly low-iso long esposures, but I also find myself in situations where higher-iso is needed. On the 1DS III, I'm hesitant to run above 400iso when I want a clean image. It seems to me that high-iso IQ is the area that has improved most in those 7 years.
So, I'm now in a position where I feel tempted by a little Sony which appears to offer the things I'd benefit from. I could probably fund its purchase by selling the 1DS III (retaining my glass). My question is; should I? Do you guys think I'll realise significant improvement from such a move, or so little I should stay-put?
Thanks for your time
Just curious about the following 2 questions to compare the image quality:Welcome to CR
1. will a 30+mp upscaled picture looks the same quality to it's original 21mp by Canon 5D III, disregard the picture size/number of pixel difference
2. how will the shadow recovery comparison look like, if using original 5D III 21mp raw vs. Sony 30+mp raw, after recovery?
