Mark, why do you seem to have to diss all other photographers? So a 42MP
camera will give 'little photos' compared to your all powerful 12MP? As
George has said, there are my different streams of professional photography
and you only seem to have experience of a few of them.

Personally, if I was commissioning something I would be less worried about
somebody using a Sony A7Rii (with good lenses) than I would if they turned
up with an elderly D700 ;-)
