I'm not interested in conducting tests for you Jim.

You've changed your mind so quickly from what you said here ?

I read your pleas and I like you and respect you and learn from you so I decide to do it. Then I get people warning me not to. They say, "Greg just shoot. Don't get sucked into their testing world or they will eat you alive." Let them do the tests. All good. You just shoot and tell us what you see and what your experiences are. We can weigh it all on our own. Testing and shooting. All good.

Anyway, It's no big deal. Really.

I would leave it alone, but you guys never will. There will be 20 more testing threads on DOF all because I said what I know I see.

Hi Greg,
This thread is about the workings of DoF, explaining how it works. Your statements are a bit extraordinary. So they require extraordinary evidence.
You have not provided any such evidence.
Best regards

Erik

Hi Erik,

Evidence. LOL.

Go have some fun and shoot.

There is nothing extraordinary about anything I have said about GFX DOF.

I see the evidence every day when I shoot.

Go shoot some GFX and you will see.

But no worries. Carry on Sir.

Hey ... here is some GFX DOF. I took this a short time ago on a hike by our hotel.

Check out that beautiful glacier. Svinafellsjokul. The aiming point was on the close ice face, that was very far away. I took another one with the aiming point on the back mountains. Guess what happened? And what do you think the tables say?

This looks very natural, filmic. But to my eye at 100% magnification, it looks like it was taken on 50mp full frame camera and sized up to 100mp with AI software. I much prefer the eye-watering sharpness of the 50S/R at 100%.

Could be atmospherics or bad PP. But I like that shot.

I don't think there's anything wrong with how sharp that shot is. There's not a lot of important super-high-frequency detail anyway. I'd probably sharpen it a bit before I printed it, depending on how big the print was.

It does need some work with tone curves to get some drama into it. It also looks to me like the horizon is tilted, but I'm not sure about that.
