Couldn’t one look at resolution directly to see if resolution was superior?

Yes, but the compression ratio measure is easier as a crude measure.

A reasonable metric and much less vague than "resolution" ...

If Canons and Sonys have a compression ratio of 3.7, while Sigma DPm has a compression ratio of 2.2 AND a person also visually prefers Sigma Foveons then I'd say there is a strong case FOR THAT PERSON to prefer Sigma Foveons.

... are we talking about the best possible out-of-camera JPEG quality, often called "fine"?

Given that “JPEG” isn’t a single standard, ...


"Since its introduction in 1992, JPEG has been the most widely used image compression standard in the world,"

how is a metric that uses the term less vague than “resolution”?

and tarmo was talking only about compression ratio

What is on the left and what is on the right if the JPEG compression ratio of a camera is 3.7?

"It all depends on what the meanin g of 'is' is" ...

- a single metric with only one meanin g, as opposed "resolution" which has many.

I am reminded of the Judge who knew porn when he saw it but wasn't able to define it ...

Of course you are ; )
