And one more thing, this was photographed with the 35mm f/1.4 lens, which is an excellent lens, but might perform differently than the Pentax 50mm f/2.8 Macro at a close focus like this. Plus, you have to get even closer with the 35mm to get the same framing as with the 50mm, so you are in a region where the 35mm might not be performing its best.

Here is my review of the Fuji 35mm f/1.4 lens though (it is the highest LW/PH lens I have tested, but I think that is due to lack of AA filter), and possible over sharpening by Lightroom. I need to test it with a JPEG from camera too.


That being said, the XTrans is not perfect of course, there are tradeoffs, but sensor sharpness is not a reason to avoid XTrans. A valid reason might be focusing concerns, Adobe RAW file handling concerns, etc.

Thanks for all these informations.. I am very surprised indeed that this comparison is not performed with equal parameters. You are right, the focal is different ... How do you explain this ??

In one hand, they give very precise measures (even the temperature when the photo was taken...) and on the other hand there are main differences in the parameters.

I know this is difficult to be strictly in the same conditions (different lenses,..)  but for these parameters this is not such a problem. I don't understand
