A Couple more SD1M/50 mm art lens versus DP3M images

Here is a teaser for you guys.  I went out and shot more images with the SD1M and the 50 mm art lens and the DP3M of comparable scenes.

AN interesting side note:  The SD1M requires more exposure than the DP3M for the same scene, any where from 1/2 stop to 1 full stop.  I checked both camera using an incidence light meter.  On most scenes the DP3M in matrix metering mode agreed fairly closely with the hand held meter.  The SD1M was always 1/2 to 1 stop under the meter reading of the incidence meter.  Maybe that is why the basic ISO of the SD1M is 200.  Some food for thought.

Anyway here are a pair of images for you to review.  I would say that both systems produced excellent, full detail images and it is hard for my to see a significant difference.

I am still having difficulty framing with the DP3M, I guess I have had too many years looking through a view finder ;O)>.
