Fuji XT-1 versus D810 / A7r

Here is an interesting comparison by Tom Grill between the Fuji XT-1 and the Nikon D810 images.


He compares images that are both scaled to 50mb (ie. the 36mp D810 is downscaled to about 18mp). However, this is for me the interesting part: nobody views photos at pixel level, so this is most close to how one would compare a print in detail. Funny enough, he gives 3 pairs of images and I think anyone would have a hard time figuring which image come from what camera.

Actually, I could guess them all but only after looking for a quite a while. I think the important question to ask when viewing each image whether you would prefer one or the other.

This is a follow-up from an earlier post where he compared the Fuji X-E2 against the A7r -- this time upscaling the Fuji to 36mp   Again, it would be exceedingly difficult to spot the which image is which:


I happen to own both an A7r and X-Pro and I already noticed that there is in practice little extra I get from the A7r. Of course, when I view 100%, I see more detail from the A7r, but in prints or just full-screen, the Fuji often has a really good look to it and is just as sharp. Just my observation, but the comparison above confirms it quite convincingly!
