I was holding off getting the 55, so thanks for nothing!

Re: Holy level of detail Batman!

Isn't it bad for portraits? At least for those where the model is female and you plan to show her the images afterwards...

Anyway for me my A7 and the SEL35F28Z provide already enough detail (I still can count the skin pores and pimples as in you shot ).

What ISO did you use for this shot? Just curious. In my A7 bumping up the ISO erodes sharpness a little.

Why are people still amazed that digital cameras show huge levels of detail?  This is what digital does well.

I'm not sure my -now sold- A55 + SAL 35mm DT could compete with the detail I get using my XD7 (XD11 in the US) + 58mm F1.2 using a good film.

With the A7 it's another story, especially when it comes down to higher ISO (especially cause I can't seem to find any film with ISO higher than 800 where I live )
