I'd pick the Nikon for sharpness, noise, resolution, color.
All good. Very subjective.

Once again, all empty claims and anecdotal statements without shred of evidence.

Scientific fact is that colors are the result of RGB filter (only three wavelengths) and the rest is software interpolation. This is an actual fact on how colors are generated.

HowaboutRAW, who just a few days ago told us "colour is about the lens mostly" claims there is a magical sauce (that he can't explain how it works or where it comes from and can't prove it) inside the lens that generates colors.

No shortage of stupid people.

HowaboutRAW, you have not posted any proof for your claims just empty words and hallow claims.

Colors are really easy to manipulate -- as they are just software interpretation from RGB filer. It is not some deep secret voodoo magic and secret sauce in lenses that generate colors. You are an idiot. It's simply RGB filer (only three wavelengths) and the rest is software interpolation. A Hollywood colorist is able to match two shots taken with various different cameras and different lenses. No problem.

You said, "colour is about the lens mostly."

What an idiotic statement.

cgarrard: Watching Sony since they bought out Konica Minolta has been very interesting. But only in the last 3 years have I seen significant changes in the way they listen to the consumers, implement changes, and improve the products as a result. They are slowly but surely acting more like a smaller camera company than a larger one - and THAT is a good thing.

Someone at Sony got the message, at this point I don't see that it will be much longer for them to make even more changes to cater to professionals and high end enthusiasts alike- so long as they keep the giant SSS Sony on the right path that is.

That's a long winded way of saying- keep improving Sony, your doing the right thing after the initial few frustrating years after you acquired KM.

You aren't making any sense. I didn't say Sony hired me. I know that you and all your fellow cohorts (walt knapp, barry fitzgerald) were against Nex and E-mount.

Remember how you won't even create a sub forum for Nex on your website? LOL. How you never even bothered to review the original Nex and started posting review of the Panasonic and competition around that time, on a website named ironically alphamount? Short memories you have there.

Sony got back on track in spite of A-mount trolls (who were against EVF, against E-mount, and your title for RX100 was "too little too late"), not because of it .

Thanks, and my point stands, that E-mount and EVF was booed by all these I mentioned (includes you), so Sony got back on track in spite of A-mount trolls, not because of it.

AV link does not prove your point. The link is talking about chromatic aberration. All you have done so far is post anecdotal claims. Nothing more

MediaDigitalVideo: Courious how much % processor consumption is needed to run the 4K screen.

On IPS panels (unlike Oled) most of the battery life is wasted by blackit light. GPU will work harder, but I don't think it have that much impact on battery life.

HowaboutRAW, stop posting the same lie over and over again. Lenses have absolutely nothing to do with color.

Notice how the guy keeps repeating the same thing about Nikon and Canon without ever posting any evidence that colors are mostly controled by lenses as he claimed yesterday.

Nikon is doing research on what? Post proof, dude, not empty statements.

Even if your statement about color cast with Sigma lens is true, it could be easily corrected by software. Probably you had white balance issue with that particular lens.

I didn't like my comment. I don't think I did. You got that wrong, as you get about everything about cameras wrong.

HowaboutRAW, you are an idiot. You said "colour is about the lens mostly." The most idiotic statement ever posted by someone on these forums.

"good lenses improve the quality of the light in the image."

What an idiotic bunch of pseudoscience. Good lenses are sharp. Good lenses have less chromatic aberration. Good lenses have less flare.

Good lenses have absolutely zero to do with color

"And you neglected the fact that B+W cameras exist. You explicitly wrote:"

I neglected black and white cameras because we are talking about colors. DUH. Is this guy really this stupid in real life or is he simply trolling?

No, lenses don't have impact on color. Colors are almost completely the function of RGB color filter combined with interpolation by software algorithm.

This guy keeps digging himself in deeper hole the more he posts. Yeah, Leica M Monochrome doesn't have color filter, because it takes black and white pictures. DUH

Despite being told how color works (RGB filter plus the missing color samples are interpolated using a demosaicing algorithm), the guy keeps posting the same stupid thing that colors comes mostly from lenses over and over again.

It's like talking to conspiracy people who believe earth is flat or like people who believe humans never landed on the moon. It's like their brain is immune to logic and science.

Adrian Van, nano coating has nothing to do with color. They are designed to avoid reflections and fare.

"I think you mean most digital cameras work that way, though certainly not all."

By most you obviously mean ALL except Sigma Foveon. Even X-Trans is simply RGB filter arranged differently.

The more you post the more idiotic you sound. Colors have nothing to do with lenses. It's almost entirely software and strength of color filter.

What irony with a name like "HowaboutRAW", the guy says

"colour is about the lens mostly"

Is there a way to ban stupid people?

You guys are all really dumb. Really stupid.. All cameras have bayer color filter array that passes red, green, or blue light -- – the missing color samples are interpolated using a demosaicing algorithm.

Colors you see depend 99% on software algorithm and 1% on bayer filter. It has nothing to do with lens.

In fact, a professional grader working for Hollywood matches colors with no problem regardless of what lenses were used on the camera. The colors have absolutely nothing to do with lenses.

It's funny to watch self appointed experts with names like HowaboutRAW posting utterly stupid things on forums.

""colour is about the lens mostly.""

What an utterly stupid thing to say proving the guy posts a lot but has absolutely no clue about the topic.

Looks to me Sony got better when they dumped A-mount along with people like barry fitzgerald, walt knapp, cgarrar, and people running a-mount forums (ahem, who would that be?)

I remember when Sony released RX100 the best title cgarrard could think to announce the launch was this: "Too little too late?"

Things got much better with E-mount, which as I remember, was booed by all these people I mentioned.

Mike_V: One of the very few if only cameras where the JPEG file can easily be bigger than the RAW file.

Not true. Camera jpegs are 13 MB. Raw files are 40+ MB. Not even close

talico: So... When DxOMark rates the sensor, do they take this into account? Does the cooking of the RAW file have any benefit to Sony that make it worth doing? Lower noise? Sony's sensors are supposed to be the best you can buy. Why do they need to do this?

Colors have nothing to do with lenses. You made absurd statement showing you actually posts a lot, even though you have no clue about the topic.

Dxomark scores aren't useless. They tell us something about the sensor.

Please spare us the home cooked anecdotal statements with no evidence.

"And I said nothing about digital cameras, so don't put terms into my comment. It doesn't do your clams a bit of good."

You were responding to someone who was commenting on colors in dpreview studio shots which are taken with digital cameras. Your response that colors on digital cameras have anything to do with lenses goes to show you actually don't know anything about the topic, despite the name "HowaboutRAW "

Please spare us. This thread was started by someone who was talking about dxomark. If you are not responding to that person. what are you doing in this thread anyway?
