thx1138: The ISO 6400 is really mushy at least as a jpg. I would hope the RAW are vastly better.
Yes, it's the first thing I do when I saw samples like those here. I tried a 3200ISO printed ona laser printer. I asked from FastStone to print 1.2m X 0.8m and the A3 crop was amazing
Yanko Kitanov: Good lens as long as these shots are concerned, but nothing spectacular.
Why is there a subtle NR engaged at ISO100? Is it possible to switch it off and make less flat shots with a less plastic feel to the fine/low-contrast detail?
I had in my mind to write the exact same thing. About plastic feel, oise reduction but mainly the loss (or the feel of loss) of microcontrast
