| p.6 #15 · Sigma DP2 Merrill: Have any of you tried it? |
Okay now I'm really not following you....
Another poster said they felt their DPM2 had an output of fine detail that their other gear couldn't touch, among that gear was m4/3 with a 75mm f1.8.
You then stated that you disagree with that claim, which can only be taken to mean that you DO think m4/3 with the 75mm f1.8 matches the DP2M in regards to rendering fine levels of detail. Correct ??
You now make the claim that your D700, with its 12 meg sensor (which I know quite well by the way as I've owned a D700, along with still having a couple D3s bodies) can produce prints with a "crispness" that other camera's can't match even with much higher resolution.
Now, again here I have to disagree with you. D700 was a nice camera, but I've shot, and printed, the same subject matter taken with the D700 and also with the D800e, and I for one see a big difference in the rendering of fine detail in the prints at 16x24 and 20x30 sizes, which are my common output sizes.
I simply don't know how to explain your answers other than you must have some sort of magic dust on your sensors because these claims just not only don't hold up to my own experiences with all the gear in question, or my understanding of physics in general.
How a 16meg m4/3 Olympus EM-5 is able to match a camera like a M9 with its AA filter, or the DP2M, or basically anything else above its resolution I don't understand. Put a good lens on it like the 75mm f1.8 and it magically gains resolution ??
Why then doesn't the Fuji X series, which doesn't have an AA filter do this with a good lens ??
There is apparently something magical about the EM-5 when paired with the 75mm that allows it to make resolution out of thin air ??
Same goes for the D700. I've owned it, I've printed it plenty, and I'm still working with what is basically the same sensor daily in my D3s's and I see no magical cripsness or clarity to it, especially not compared to prints from my D800.
Now the D800 is rather demanding on glass, and also technique. Using good glass though, and a solid tripod though its output shows a visible difference over what I used to get from the D700
Even at a basic level, saying a 12meg sensor with an average strength AA filter can somehow match or exceed a 36meg sensor without an AA filter, when glass is not the limiting factor just doesn't make sense.
If you enjoy your EM-5 and your D700, thats fantastic, but the EM-5, nor the D700 is the resolution/crispness champ in this current day and age.
Again, both good cameras, and both can produce nice images, but unless I had some total duds, neither of them blew me away in terms of IQ
Are you suggesting that simply by putting a 75mm f1.8 onto a m4/3 camera it can magically turn it into a D800e/M9 rival ?
Why do you make your own history of what people think ? And you are so wrong in asking about that
Pixels is not all, there is a lot more to that than pixels, I have 22 huge prnts from D700 and from other cameras with more pixels hanging, and the D700-prints have more clarity or crispandness, than from the other cameras, even they have higher resolution
