BTW, the real test should be at equivalent FL and equivalent f-stops with common lenses.

When comparing resolution across formats you have to keep the subject distance constant. DxO apparently doesn't do that. Might be a source of some of their inconsistencies

true !

Wrong, actually. They have one chart. When they test equivalent FL's they shoot from the same distance. There is a reason equivalence is call that way.

BTW the slanted edge test does not feel the distance differences too much.

I do not see any inconsistencies. Their MTF data perfectly confirm what the theory predicts. It is funny how some people (not you) dismiss both the theory and the experimental data.

Too bad they replaced the MTF charts with the meaningless one number tells it all metric.
