Re: TG-2 sample shot at ISO 100 and my initial impression

The thing about diffraction is that it does not happen suddenly like dropping off a cliff but gets worse gradually with smaller apertures. It is visible more easily with higher MP sensors when viewed at 100% size. At smaller size viewing or printing the effects are not as noticeable. But then what is the point of having more MP if the images are not sharp at full size?

I agree that these high MP cameras with such a small sensor are just a marketing gimmick. They are not able to resolve the full resolution of the sensor partly because of diffraction and also because of noise. I see either noise or noise reduction at base ISO and it only gets worse from there.

A larger sensor compact at 10 MP in a tough camera would be perfect for me.
