Foliage issues still?

My standard of quality is very high, thank you + images

First of all, any review, by definition, is subjective. Period. Likewise, it is my opinion that my images are of high quality and my standards are high. I also believe I have credibility on the issue - my images hang in galleries and of the walls of private and corporate collectors. I've printed as large as 40x30 for solo shows in Los Angeles. So, I think I have a pretty good eye.

I'm not saying the "problem" doesn't exist, I'm just saying it's a non-issue that I haven't seen or noticed. Anyway, here are a couple of recent images of bushes, trees, foliage with the XP1 - all RAW processed in LR. To my eye, they are fine. And the files are at least as good as my 5DII. If you want to see the high-resolution versions, email me and maybe we can work something out.

I'm with Chris on this one. I'm not going to purposely go out and try to re-create a problem that I wouldn't have known about if not but a few hysterical posters.

Thom Hogan is not a "hysterical poster". His review of the X-Pro 1 was roundly praised as being on the mark, and completely unbiased. Few people could point to a review that reached his level of expertise, much less exceed it.

But, I have taken images of trees and bushes, and to my eye, all is fine.

It is to your benefit that your standards of quality are low enough to allow the smearing to be a cause for concern.

LOL...No one is harder on Nikon than Thom Hogan. NO ONE. You show supreme ignorance with that comment above.

Clearly you have not read a word of his since the Nikon D800 launch. Very transparent of you.

Ignorance - that would be believing his FUD on image smearing, rather than trusting the thousands of images i have in front of me.

You know - like the samples I kindly provided for you, and which you then carefully ignored.
