My quick conclusion from your photos. Most Sony shooters with ZA lens dont know how to process photos right. Cause yours look every bit as Zeissy as they should. I was always kinda suspecting its not Sony AA fault, but more in processing.. as your pics show, its exactly like that..

Gonna buy A900 probably..

a850/a900 RAWs should not be very hard to process correctly. I didn't do anyhing except reduced exposure (the LCD on camera didn't show photos as bright as they were in computer) and even without doing any camera specific stuff in Apple Aperture I can see that the CFA (Color Filter Array) is better for color separation then the weak ones used in Canons. I don't know (or care) how Lightroom processes Sony files, I would rather use even dcraw.c before using Lightroom and it's hideous RAW processing (just my personal experience, feel free to like it, everyone of us have their own preferences...)..

AA is very strong - hard to say but my feeling is that actual resolution without sharpening might even be less than 5DmkII. Naturally with convolution sharpening more can be extracted as long as ETTR is used. My Topaz trial period ended so I haven't yet tried the sharpening.

If you want to review RAW files before buying a900 let me know and I'll throw few to dropbox.com for you.

I was more thinking about lack of "3D" in most A900/ZA users photos and about very visible 3D in yours. I know 3D needs a bit of PP, but it cant be "made".. its either there or isnt. And apparently it is.. (which as consequence means it will be there with and "3D" lens).

I have like 2 files from A900, but nothing great exactly for evaluating quality. I would be happy if you uploaded some of that good stuff you do.

From what I saw, I agree pretty much on everything you just wrote..

Lovely photos Wilhelm, were you under an umbrella taking those?

Great New York shots, I was there at the same time. Had fun with my tilt adapter and my Hassy lens:

She's a beauty Ronny :-)

While on the subject, Contax G 45/2 from today. A focal length I have trouble to find use for. But a very high quality lens as demonstrated by many (others) in the NEX thread.
