Quick comparison: DP2M vs 5D3 vs X100S
Jul 22, 2014

Just received my new-to-me DP2M yesterday. Brought it out this morning for a quick non-scientific comparison. 5D3 was shot with a Canon EF 50mm f/1.4. All are jpegs straight out of the camera.  Yes, I know this is an invalid test for multiple reasons, but it's just a quick comparison.  I'm very impressed with the DP2M for having half the sensor area.  The X100S cannot hang here.

Question though - I had the M in "raw + jpeg" mode. I assumed this meant it would save the raw file and a "fine" jpeg. However when I look at the exif data it says jpeg quality 5/15. Is that really a "normal" or "basic" jpeg then? Thanks!
