| p.1 #14 · p.1 #14 · Canon 1D X: The best of Canonís full-frame sensors |
I've been using Canon for many years and I am disturbed by the Sony sensors advantage in DR and in particular possibilities in shadow lifting. It gives new dimensions to postprocessing and I am not talking about HDR-like effects or any extreme PP, rather real world adjustments to make appealing imagery.
Last fall I got a NEX 5N to complement the 5D2. The NEX have no chance in replacing the 5D2 in handling, OVF, responsiveness, feel, FF-qualities and many other things. But for IQ in terms of DR the NEX files are so much more robust in PP. And now, this is what the latest generation of FF cams share from Nikon and Sony.
It's almost embarrassing. No one can take away the great IQ that a 5D2 or 5D3 (or the pro bodies) have produced and still can produce. But we are so much behind the latest improvements in digital sensor tech led by Sonys sensor department.
I am a manual lens user (95%), and the only thing that keep me with Canon is the flange distance - which is an historical coincidence nothing more - because of the adaptability to super quality alt lenses. And yes, the Canon TS range appeals too.
