On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (2340 comments in total)
In reply to:

DuckShots: I have L lenses. Will they be sharper? I love all of them. Will they be less sharp? Cannot spend more on glass. Don't have the money for a medium format or a Leica. Is this the camera of my present dreams?

"At 100%" is not particularly relevant for many people though - even though many (including yourself it would seem) don't understand this. At normalised image output sizes, you'll NEVER be worse off, but usually better off.

Pixel peeping is not the best way to judge FINAL IMAGES unless you view your final images at 1:1 magnification. And there would be VERY FEW who would do this with a 50MP image!

Those that NEED to and do will use the best glass possible.
The rest will almost always benefit from the increased resolution, even if their glass not the very best quality (providing their technique is capable).

On 1985 Ferrari F1 in the Race Cars in Black & White or Sepia challenge (2 comments in total)

Thanks Adrian. :-)

Unsurprisingly, I agree with you. ;-)

Oh well, it's just for fun and these challenges are hit and miss at best.

But thanks for the vote of confidence. Appreciated.

" The conclusions one draws are personal, but the opportunity to capture some of these wonders in images seems a worthy challenge for any photographer."

Yep, no doubt the world is a wonderful place! That is for sure! Unfortunately, in this challenge, the "conclusion one draws" from this has already been fixed by the subject of the challenge.

I'd rather, as you say, have people draw their own conclusions from my images. Not have them already pre-defined.

I'd have thought a better title for exactly the same challenge would have been ... "The wonderful world around us", or such.

And the next challenge shall be ...
"Unicorns in the wild"

Think I'll skip on the "Overwhelming proof of something that is not provable" challenge personally. It'll be easier to find a unicorn methinks. :-)

"Interesting to see that even with the penalty of the translucent mirror the A77 wipes the floor with the APS-C competition"
