Great shot of the stadium
Yep, colours are way off.. But not just that. I find that with say the Nikon system. Most of the 1.4G lenses can be made to look similar. Not exactly, but the mood seems the same. I can get similar results with Canon, to the point where I have to check my EXIF or I won't know if I shot it with X lens or Y lens. Whereas with my Leica, I can immediately tell two images were shot with different lenses.
I think in a way that's good. As each lens is so "unique" that you could have 3 different...Show more →
I was thinking the same thing working with event results, all M or LTM glass, yet shot with both A7 and M9.
But even the same lens will give a wildly different look at f/8 than f/2, and distances factor in as well. Backlit, frontlit, time of day. A lens like the 28 cron gives varied looks.
But despite the inconsistencies my clients were wild about the results, and found the variety a strength.
The 28 cron, zm35/2 and 50 cron are "sort" of similar. Maybe the 135 apo is in that camp too.
detail rendering with zm 18 and SEM 21 are very similar, but color palette just a bit warmer with the SEM, which is sort of like the 90 summarit. The CV 75 and 90, which take no prisoners really, well the 75 is zeiss cool, but the 90 a tad warmer.
But the M9 sensor stamps an imprimatur which is somewhat uniting----throw the Sony into the mix, well you have many looks.
Not good if you are shooting Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, but I'm not sure it's so terrible in event work if the shots are interesting.
This is certainly a reason a D810 makes sense as a wedding rig. I shot so many weddings with a PD-170 that I don't lust after work like that, anymore. But I admire it.
Editing can overcome personality quirks for sure, since we can recognize shooters like Derek and Michael even across platforms, let alone with different glass.
