Azathothh: Pics look really flat.

Did you download the raws and extract them?

Also light in the Seattle area isn't known for (lacking a better single word) depth.

That iPhone7+'s lens is pretty darn fuzzy when up against say the Panasonic CM1, and the latter doesn't have the greatest reputation for sharpness off centre.

The Apple also seems to have noise at ISO 20.

All raws extracted with ACR 9.1.1.

karlchwe: I am glad it is not a Panasonic with a fancy wood handle.

I wonder if Hasselblad has the chops to make it. They are great at machining aluminum, but I wonder if they are they good at designing microlens arrays, or noise-reduction algorithms. And licensing technology from Fuji or Panasonic or Sony would be a let-down. It dilutes the brand.

FLruckas,

You were wrong about Luminous Landscape's website, and I don't go down your other "paths".

And you seem to think "7th planet" is "creative".

FLruckas:

Check your statistics before posting, oh wait checking isn't your thing. (It's easy to find Reichmann commenting on the Lunar announcement--just by way of example.)

Oh, and most of the recent Photokina articles aren't paywalled.

You don't seem real interested in reading about photo gear.

Luminous-Landscape is hardly entirely paywalled.

You clearly didn't check. That's called irony.

HowaboutRAW: How about some dark interiors with challenging lighting using ISOs above say 3200 with the D750.

So yes, this lens looks amazing in daylight.

tkbslc,

That's a making an assumption about maths limiting the content of the thing they describe.

Run the test.

FLruckas,

It's not the "wooden" aspect that's the problem.

In reply to:

Graham: Great review, but I am puzzled that RAW performance is tested using ACR, not DPP. The package consists of the camera body, a battery, RAW conversion software and accessories. The camera is tested with the supplied battery, not a third party substitute, so why are RAW files evaluated using third party RAW converters?

I attended a presentation of the new camera by Andy Rouse, who explained that his lovely high ISO images of kingfishers had been processed in DPP, that he could not achieve similar results with ACR or Lightroom, and that DPP seemed to be performing some kind of magic not available to Adobe.

Maybe that has changed since the beta version of the camera and ACR has caught up, but would it not be a more valid comparison to test ISO performance with the software supplied by the camera manufacturers instead of, or as well as, a RAW converter made by a third party? After all, everyone buying the camera will have the maker's software, but not everyone will have ACR.

FLruckas,

You didn't post a serious question, and then you started on an anti-Semitic path. (Note your post has been removed.)

FLruckas,

It's not an astro lens. And slipping in a reference to what you did only makes you stand out in a bad way.

karl,

Read Reichmann of Luminous-Landscape, those old articles (commentaries) should be free.

Right karl,

Everyone saw the SonyBlad's as ridiculous.

DJS,

Ignore us gear-idiots then, and shoot and play, and learn software. I realize the latter part is advice that contradicts the former.

Pete_:

Interesting, you're correct, now it's 20usd if you register on line, much less than just showing up and paying still. That's 70usd.

DJS:

There was nothing limiting my initial post to mirrorless and/or pro bodies.

The LX100 is a famous camera, and it's barely dropped in price since Panasonic introduced it 2 years ago. The Panasonic LX100 is related to many mirrorless 4/3 cameras since it uses a 4/3 sensor but crops off some pixels available in normal Micro 4/3 cameras. It is one of the first consumer cameras to shoot 4K.

Just quote the post you're referring to if there's any ambiguity.
