GH2, ETC v CROP mini test.

After my ETC GH2 birds thread yesterday, questions were asked about the benefits of using ETC over a crop, so i did a simple test today.

Subject is a lock on my garden shed, its about 25ft away, GH2 was on a tripod and i used the timer, i used the 100-300mm lens as that was the lens used in my bird thread.

The pics are OOC, shot in P mode, untouched other than the crop of the second shot.

First up is the ETC JPG shot @300mm/1400mm EFL.
Second is a cropped JPG shot, shot in normal L mode @ 300mm/600mm EFL.

For me, i see that the metering in the ETC is better than the cropped image, also the ETC has faster shutter speed, which would be a benefit if the subject had been a little bird, i also think the focus is better in the ETC shot.

Anyway, have a look and post your opinion.
