Thank you all for the comments!
In connection with the recent events, there was a lot of time to think about photographic equipment as well. I'll post a few pictures from different cameras and phone. I still have a99-II from a serious technique and also an old a300. Here are the pictures from these cameras.

I didn’t finish the thought I started in the previous post, I was busy with other pre-new problems. :) Why put a picture from the A300 together with the A99-II? It's just that the quality of my first Sony DSLR costing an order of magnitude lower than the full-frame A99-2 is quite comparable! This is especially true for publications on the Internet. You still have to downsize the picture, and as a result, the whole point of 43 megapixels is lost. Well and one more thing, yet the matrix ccd sensor has excellent color reproduction in grayscale. The only drawback is that a high-quality picture is obtained up to ISO 600.

Wonderful captures Valery. The high res A99M2 helped me with prints. I have printed up to 24X36 without any problems.

Thank you!
Of course, the A99-II for printing is of the highest quality. I printed 8'x10' wallpaper with no problem. :)
Like example this one shot. :)

The bird shots are a set of winter joy. Beautifully shot. Scarlet Finch (?) stands out!
Love the squirrel.

:D Thanks for sharing, Valery.

Thanks, Valery, so it's a Pine Grosbeak. And it looks good on a snowy day while easily noticeable.
