X2d vs GFX 100Smanual focusing accuracy
5

I made 36 manually focused images of a Siemens star and two slanted edges with the 38 XCD on the X2D and the GF 45 on the GFX 100S, 18 with each camera. Subject distances were 11 feet for the 38 and 13 feet for the 45 to keep the FOV the same.

  • ES
  • f/2.8
  • C1 head on RRS legs
  • Base ISO
  • On axis
  • Low contrast target

I measured the MTF50 in cycles per picture height using Imatest.

Here is a scattergram for each edge orientation.

I can't wait to get focus peaking in the X2D.

As a reference point, it think anything less than 1500 cy/ph can look soft in a 17x22 inch print.
