Very nice sets from you all Bob, Ryan and Joe!
Helena, nice tunnel and tufted vetch shots! Had been enjoying your earlier pics but did not have a chance to comment. Didn't realize you bought a XE-1? How do you find the files compared to the Canon 5D?
Thank you! I have seen and appreciated your "likes" (and others' too, thank you all!) .
I got the Fuji a few weeks ago to replace what's left of my Canon gear, and so far I'm very happy with it. It has exceeded my expectations and it's fun to have access to other focal lengths again.
5D was good enough for me except that I wanted more DR and a smaller camera. I can see that RX1's files are technically superior, but really like what comes out of the X-E1. Usually great colors and a nice tonality and clarity.
If I would rate the sensors (I'm just making these numbers up and it's just my opinion of course) and RX1 is "15" I'd put 5D at 10 and X-E1 at 12.5 or 13.
Compared to 5D the Fuji has more DR. Lifting the shadows on the Canon shows noise which is often colorful and patterned, but on X-E1 that's no problem. Overall the amount of noise seems similar, but on the Fuji it's almost monochrome and not patterned, so much less disturbing. I also like Fuji's colors better. In fact, I sometimes even prefer them over RX1's colors.
