is it an example supposed to be good from this new "beast" associated with such an expensive lens ???nothing is crisp !or did I miss something ?
well... at 50%, it is "crisp".As I am manipulating many medium format images for my clients for 2 years now (I am a photographer + "young" graphic designer) I already forgot the impact of the anti-aliasing filter...Finally a "good" sample to convince me even more to stay with my "old" A900 and wait for the next "affordable" medium format Pentax.(or a competitor coming from the Sony/Hassy co-working :-)
just in case : 80% of the images included in this brochure are coming from digital backs : http://www.animations.citroen.fr/flipbookGuidefinancement/
It just needs a light sharpen. That's how dpreview usually present their photos. It's only f8 with focus on the near trees so the background isn't actually in focus.
Have a look at the first photo of the girl's face and tell me there is any detail lacking in her right eye. It's pretty remarkable.
After 10 years I stopped judging a sensor with a close-up portrait.Even with my first 3 MP D30, I was blown away by the details in the hair at 100% !
Look at those 645D samples here and tell me if you agree with me about the typical anti-aliasing filter effect + obviously the ccd sensor in itself and its size:> image in "Diffraction" section :http://www.galerie-photo.com/test-pentax-645d.html
If you compare this shot with a D800E (+/- same resolution) here, you should react like me.And this is even more surprising as Nikon offer precisely a E version body without the anti-aliasing filter effect in order to compete with the medium format world...http://masters.galleries.dpreview.com.s3.amazonaws.com/2015991.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId=14Y3MT0G2J4Y72K3ZXR2&Expires=1355622597&Signature=2W%2fB8xtGt8bL4cs3BSCpAe8YcFE%3d
Actually I dream about an OMD with a medium format sensor... nothing more. Some rumors talk about a next Pentax without mirror.
