Done couple of years ago between P&S vs. MF ... its always the DOF that gives it away.

I wonder if in blind tests he can distinguish between two images, one shot by MF and the other by D800? This assumes reasonable size prints and similar Post processing work.

Thank you for the link. If viewers have difficulty identifying the difference between a P&S and MF, then I am sure they will have difficulty between a 1.25x sensor and the FX sensor images. The DOF will not be that dramatically different. Looks like other than DOF, the words like tonality, color depth etc. were not easily differentiated amongst the two images.

Truthfully, I think Leica does produce great glass which makes the images better than the camera/sensor itself.
