Ah, It's not the pixel sharpness I have any concerns about, or DoF, or diffraction. It is more the colour performance of the new sensor at Low Iso. There are unverified claims that the colour filters on the sensor are designed to produce a higher level of colour accuracy and separation, which if true, would be a good thing in the current marketplace. I'm hoping the colour rendition of some R lenses will show their worth on the the 5DS R

EDIT - word duplication

Per-pixel sharpness is relatively easy to get with just about any decent lens: stop down to f/5.6, focus carefully, and look in the center of the frame. Even on my 5DS-pixel-density NEX-7, which has possibly one of the worst sensor toppings among high resolution cameras. The problem I encountered wasn't sharpness fall-off as one went away from the axis, it was finding a subject flat enough to test against. Ultimately, the DOF thinness surpassed my interest in testing further, even with a subject about 25m away.

My guess is that, over the next year or so, there will be a lot

Long story short, I need money. D810 with stock screen is no longer a preferred way to shooting portrait with Manual lens . The real reason is I don't use them much as before. Nowdays, whenever I use D810, it mostly 14-24, 24-70 for landscape and traveling. S replace it for SLR type portrait. I need prioritize my setup to suit my current need better.

I want add another S lens to my kits.(100cron or 125 APO) It won't happen if I keep buying stuff without moving others away

Sure. That makes sense in case you are to prioritize your gear set up.

Good Luck with your journey.

All 21-35, Rayqual, NEX-7. Mild cropping and color correction. I'm still trying to figure out a reliable way to make plant-green (aka, greenish yellow) look right.

For anyone just glancing through these, I recommend taking a look at a higher resolution version of coogee's photo on his Flickr page. The extra pixels helped it hit home for me. Nicely etherial capture of the water, Dylan.

A few from Santa Cruz Wharf from my one day in town on vacation. 50 Cron-R on the way up, 28 Elmarit-R E55 on the way back. Interesting place, reminded me of Brighton in the UK.

I've since sold the 50 Cron as it was my least loved out of 28, 35, 50. Not that it was bad, just the least loved especially as I have 50 Lux-M ASPH and 50MP Zeiss. In an ideal world I might have kept it, it had a lovely feel in the hand, the 6 blades I will miss less.

Thanks for your kind comments. You are the one made me entering the R land Life comes with cycle. Having acquire a Nikon DF, I will see if I will be back or going to Zeiss again(Auto aperture is a huge advantage hard to ignore. though wrong focus direction ) I still keep 50Cron, a wonderful lens.

What is your heart right now ?

Loom.

21-35, SpeedBooster, NEX-7. Probably at 21mm and f/8, so 15mm f/5.6.

1:1 crop from the 21-35, with maximum highlight and shadow recovery. I'm impressed by how well the lens renders contrast, even directly into a (haze-filtered) sun. This may be typical of all modern lenses, but even if that's the case, this is still nuts.



In other news, I decided to get an iPhone for a variety of reasons, one of which was photo quality. I did a brief comparison. With all the hubbub about how phones are perfectly capable cameras--and they are--my NEX-7 remains unthreatened, which is relieving. On the crop frame, at least, the 21-35 @ 21/3.5 performs about as well in the corners at 1:1 as the phone does with only a slight enlargement. (On the other hand, it is a superbly enjoyable digital audio player, which my camera doesn't seem to do at all.)

And a nice photo to bump the R thread. :-)


Good morning, Portland. (13)

Cheers,
Jon

I'm hoping your gut feeling is just a minor medical condition and that the 21-35 and 28-90 will be an interesting choice on the 5DS R


You may already be using it on an earlier 5D body, in which case ignore my comments etc, but the 28-90 will foul the 5D mirror as it comes, the same as the 21-35. To stop this the rear shroud needs to be removed. That's OK on the 21-35 but try it on the 28-90 and something important springs off and gets lost. I friend of mine had this happen many years ago and had to send the lens to Leica for repair. I think there may be a way to get it working, perhaps others can comment.
