X-Series and Landscape Photography
Jan 31, 2014

Well, I've done it. I ordered the XT-1 today from B&H. I'm excited and a bit nervous as well. I shoot mostly landscapes and some portraits. On various sites I've read that the X-series sensor doesn't do particularly well with greens and it makes me wonder if I'm going to be happy with the XT1 for landscapes. Still, I haven't been happy with my Nikon D7000, with noise beginning at ISO 400 and in terms of resolution, it's been a disappointment. I'm tired of lugging around so much bulk and I'm hoping that going mirrorless will inspire me to take the camera with me on more outings and vacations.

So my question... What's your experience with the 'green issue' - is it overstated or a real problem? Pixel peaking on the dpreview test shots, I can see the softness in the green areas when comparing various cameras. For those who shoot landscapes has this presented an issue or been a cause of concern? Thanks in advance for your feedback.
