IQ G1X/G1XMKII
3 months ago

After seeing some posts here saying that the original G1X lens provided better IQ than the one on the MKII (which, I must admit, was also my impression), I did some testing. You can find the test images in my gallerie. The test is by no means scientific and very much adhoc - but to my surprise, the MKII lens is a clear winner! Even at 24mm wide open, sharpness into the corner is remarkable. In fact, it is almost on par with the the primes I have on my NEX6 and much better than the 16-50 kit lens. I am using DPP to convert MKII RAWs to TIF. LR seems to be in Beta for this camera and produces a lot more noise. Below are images taken at differnt focal lenghts at wide open and f/8.
