ha jeah, true! I can remember it so clearly, all these guys laughing at canon because "noboy needs the Cnon 5Ds with 50mp". And now its expected to have at least 40mpixel in any model and the 20mpixel from the 1DX III is suddenly a disaster :-D
Newer generations will allways have "more" in something and thats a good thing. One day the Megapixel war will finaly be over, but than other things will get important like even finer color details or maybe perfect 3D (without glasses).
I think any image (photo or video) right now is still very far away from perfect (technicaly speaking). As long as I can distinguish between looking out of a window and looking onto a screen, it is not perfect. Only if this distinction is completely impossible for a human, the imagereproduction is technicaly perfect and wont need improvement. Until than, more "something" is sill necessary and will certainly happen.
I am not realy sure whats the main problem of images being not perfectly lifelike. <snip>
Goodness....I really don't WANT images to look 'real' like you're describing....I post process my images, to try to look BETTER than real life, nice contrast, colors that pop....removing unwanted objects (or people) in scenes....
I think I prefer the results of my photography projects to be more like 'art'....to give myself (and hopefully others) a break from "real life"....we get enough of that every day we wake up!!
