| p.3 #13 · RX1 bokeh vs other cams/lens at F/2.0 |
Maybe I misunderstand, but isn't it a true 35mm?
I agree about the DoF though. I have several shots at f/2 where just about everything looks to be in focus, unless you zoom into the picture. I recently compared RX1 with 5D + 35L and found that the Sony has clearly more DoF at f/2. That is somewhat disappointing for me even though it can be very useful at times. Sometimes I also feel that RX1 is a bit too perfect (renders overly smooth etc.), but I still love it. It'll do fine until there are more small (affordable) FF cameras to choose from.
To me the amount of blur isn't as interesting as the character, and I find the Sonnar very good at separating the subject from the background even at several meters distance. The bokeh doesn't get a bit harsh either, which is very common with other 35 mm lenses. I think I prefer the ZF rendering, but its not surprising that such a huge lens is "better".
At this time I'm just very greatful that I can get all this in such a small camera. The APS-C ones just don't come even close, because of lack of fast enough lenses. The Metabones Speedbooster might change that, though. But what smallish 35/2 for SLR:s could beat the Sonnar? Probably none.
