What is it about the Queen of Hearts?
Dec 18, 2012

I'm surely not the only person who's noticed on DPR's comparison images how frequently zooming in on the Queen of Hearts gives a totally distorted view of a camera's IQ capability.  A good example:  Compare the 5D Mk2 to the G-15 by zooming in on the Queen.  It's not even close: the G-15 comes out way ahead.  Zooming in elsewhere in the image, however, gives a more realistic comparison.  I've noticed this when comparing several other cameras as well.  The 7D looks much sharper on the Queen than the 5D Mk3!  But this occurs nowhere else in the test image.  Can anyone explain this?
