Ramjager: Firstly the headline is completely inaccurate as the article clearly points out that the number of subconditions for which you place on this superior performance is so massive that perhaps a better title would be "DLSR AF performance is still superior to A7II except when using F2 lenses".
Feel free to glorify the poor Sony A7 all you like but please at least have the respect for those with some photographic experience to do it accurately..
Well bring your A7 and a 400mm lens and come take photos with me in the dark.
If your A7 can perform as well as a 1DX then you can change your title to A7II beats DSLR AF performance.
If not how about you write an article that current DSLR's in poor light combined with difficult weather beat mirrorless cameras..

I, too, find the revised title Ramjager wrote is more clear.

JJ Rodin: I am sure processed to make a point, but very unrealistic looking, unless light sources abound, which they did not.

Human eyes would not see this scene like this but likely somewhere between the 2 'views' (acr raw vs ooc jpeg) of the scene.

'Natural' is the new 'HDR' !!!? ;)

@JJ Rodin, interesting take on whether a pic retaining the shot in the range of EV as human eyes see it.

Reality or not (of the shots), I guess judges had to be there and view and compare the shots there and then. Would it not? I am sure I was not there.

Regarding 'HDR', most would expect those in the following flickr link have 'HDR' look. I don't see the tweak done in these set of shots are at 'HDR' level.

Happy shooting! :)

nice "fujifilm reala"-ish color skin tone consistently produced from one gen of cam to this.

Martin Crombie Photography: Not a single human being? No ones going to be interested in skin tones then

In reply to:

haroldo: These ACR conversions are over saturated, almost HDRs.

@haroldo, really? consider viewing with a calibrated mon, pls.

Thanks for taking us down this beaten path. You sure have a great sense of beauty. Combined with your gentle and artistic touch of PS, every scene is alive. Good job!

Joerg V: The IQ180 is absolutely mind-boggling. I guess you get what you pay for.

In fact even the "low-resolution" D810 and 5DS R images are stressing the studio scene. Most of the component are actually more or less obsolete as they are outresolved by those sensors. The banknote and the etching are still very helpful but with 60MP FF sensors around the corner, the sudio scene might need an overhaul.

i c. ouch, the "beer" has gotten the better of me. :) may be over lay (cough glue) a small portion of the res chart with finer res chart starting from widest end of the old chart?

:) keep the same focal length and move the camera away and dress surrounding w/ more greens.

Phil A had an elegant solution in the past... move the camera further and increase the focal length by using a medium tele.

Top Dog Imaging: A bit off topic: What lens did you use for the Olympus EM-5 M2 in high-resolution studio photo?

turvyT: Expected outcome: first, Phase 1, second Pentax 645, third Canon and Nikon (maybe Canon slightly better). No surprise here.

obscolescence, unfortunately, pentax K-3ii will use pixel shift for better color on stationary subject while it could offer both better color and res of larger senor.

btw, i find the image from omd e-m5 mkii Hi Res is very good for a m43, but, rather soft among these big guys.
