Re: Why standardize on substandard resolution

As for "your own eyes", I remember posting a "blind" RAW comparison (crops) between the NEX 5N and NEX 7 at high ISO at the same physical exposures, here in this forum. Many people took up the challenge and those that were confident they could tell which was which, were on average quite wrong.

For me, such real world comparing tests have been an eye-opener, especially when I found that about 40 skilled professional photographers couldn't tell the difference between 12 Mp aps-c and 24 Mp FF from 70 x 100 cm prints! (A700 vs A900 at ISO 200, similar angle of view). The scene was a ship building yard, with a lot of super-fine detail.

A lot of people trust numbers much more than their own eyes.
