Mt. Whitney finally emerged from under the thick blanket of clouds that had shrouded the top of the mountains for the last 2 1/2 days, thanks to the rain storm. And when she did, she was freshly clad with snow, to my pleasant surprise, although expected to a degree. I deployed my 70-200mm f/4 to have a closeup of the tallest peak in the contiguous US. And I was extremely pleased by how crisp the peaks looked, in particular, shot with the Sony A7III. Also, what I was extremely surprised by was the 35mm full frame (6000 x 4000) mode in high resolution, which brings the size of a file up to almost 50MB from 24 MB. Yes, it is a bit of pain in the butt to process these hugh files, but even when I crop in, the crispy resolution remains, and in this case I was simply blown away by the clarity and sharpness. What I wondered though is, if the f/4 lens could produce such a clear imagery like this, what could the newly introduced EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III do, let alone the f/2.8 II. How about an extender?
