Scrolling down the screen, I coudn't tell which image is by which camera. They all look the same. I suspect this is the conclusion for the great majority of the viewers with interweb images and flipping through magazines. Then again I don't go looking for 10000% crops and hover a magnifying glass over a typical issue of Nat Geo mag.
I saw a very pretty photo in another thread.... shot by an EOS M with a kit lens.
Just use whichever works. Thanks for your efforts though.
I agree and disagree.
I think we are definitely to a point where the quality difference between cameras and lenses is so small that it is starting to not matter much. I'm a pretty avid landscape shooter, and I shoot with a crop camera. Gasp!, besides being constantly told on these forums that this camera isn't good for landscapes, I have many fantastic 24X24, and 20X30 prints on my wall that beg to argue that opinion.
I have no doubt that I could get slightly better results with a full frame 5D III or a Nikon D800. Heck, in those 20X30 prints you might even be able to notice the difference past a viewing distance of 6 inches. Maybe. While I would love to upgrade to such a camera, and am just a little bit jealous of those who have them, it's not a show stopper, and if I had to choose between spending 3 grand on more equipment, or 3 grand on photography excursions, I think the latter would end up giving me better images.
