James A Rinner: Interesting statement they made when they compared it to other cameras. "and only lags (in image quality) behind the very impressive Micro Four Thirds Olympus OM-D E-M5." What is Olympus doing so well that the smaller sensor out performs this larger one?

There is definately more noise in the m4/3 but there also more detail and since this is a Sony sensor I am asking the question; what is Olympus doing so well that the smaller sensor out performs this larger one?

Hmmm...I don't see that except their is less noise on the Sony from ISO 3200 and above, but there is also less detail on the Sony versus the Olympus.

marike6,
It was under the jpeg image tests, which is pretty obviouswhen you compare the files.

In reply to:

ysal: I thought the rule was: "subject must be a single leaf NOT TOUCHED by another leaf" Can it be touched by leaves of a different tree/plant?

No it can't but it can be seperated in distance. I am still going through images.

Hasselblads have always been expensive and when I was shooting professionally I owned four of them! I am older and sold an almost complete Hasselblad system, with two bodies, to move completely to 4/3 (Olympus E-5) and now sold all that to move to Micro 4/3! I would love to try out that new body and 24mm lens, but it is wiser for me to steer clear! :)

There is one leaf not touching the rest so it is in compliance with the rules.

Very nicely done! When I first saw this and saw the alpenglow on the mountains I expected to see it on the moon, but hten I said "Duh, the moon is lit by the sun only and the mountains by the sunlight through the atmosphere!"
