Re: 12-40 with dtc and 40-150 comparison, at 80 mm

Thank you all for your comments. To me the difference is obvious when I look at the pictures at 100% on my screen. The 40-150 shows much more detail. But I like colors and contrast better from the 12-40. Remember it's a 4 MP picture that's upsampled. Not long ago 4MP was a lot!

Paul: I can't see any double contours. Maybe it's the a little edgy bokeh from the 12-40 that shows when looking at 100%. No good photos, yes, it's just what I saw from my summerhouse veranda.

I did an experiment with upsampling the central 4MP of the 12-40 raw file to 16 MP, got some more detail than the camera jpg engine provided but also a dreadful moire, so I won't post it. Did it with exporting from LR, there are probably better ways.
