I think Zafar satellite was ready from 2011, but too many satellites and not enough launches = 8 year delay in launch!
The resolution is reported at 80m, which is very poor. Especially when Iran has satellites with <10m resolution now and is aiming for 1-2m resolution in the next few years.
Regardless, this will be a good step and hopefully it will be the first successful launch of the Simorgh SLV.

Obsolete would mean Iran have cheaper and more safe SLV for same job...and as I remember Simorgh is more complex, expensive, and ment to deliver heavier satellites in higher orbits....
Second...camera is not only device attached to satellites...there are other things...communication devices,link mirrors..etc and some roles doesn't require 1m resolution camera... It is again cost,requirements...etc what should be considered.
