  • "Crop factor" is the real straw man fallacy because it only accounts for half of what is required for equivalency and misses the real zone of compromise (basically size vs larger/narrower...

    Yes, that all makes sense to me, but I must caution that Oly's digital filtering strategy reduces moire but doesn't completely avoid it and it does impose a pretty heavy blurring penalty as well ...
  • Replied in No he did not.
    Unlike you, I have no DSP expertise, but what I've bolded above seems to assume an ideal case. We are not dealing with an ideal case, however. There is always some unpredicted movement in the ...
  • Replied in No he did not.
    Well, if that's all you meant, you weren't particularly precise about it. You referred to the Pentax "implementation," not just the "capture process" and then went into considerable (albeit rather ...
  • Replied in No he did not.
    Please see my explanation in response to kenw.
  • Replied in No he did not.
    No. The Pentax raw file consists of four Bayer-type layers (each can be individually extracted from the raw file). It requires a specially adjusted raw processor to render a working RGB file. The ...
  • Replied in No he did not.
    You're both wrong here. Oly's HiRes does not "get rid of the Bayer filter" and does not "measur[e] each color independently." It does not work like the Pentax and Hasselblad strategy to capture ...
  • Replied in no it doesnt
    Look at the foliage crop posted by Donald B here . Your criticism is overstated as is the underlying assumptions about HiRes landscapes.
  • Quoting from that story is proving my point, not yours.
  • No reference was ever made by anyone to "proper exposure" in that exchange, let alone define it. Indeed, nobody defined the shooting and processing parameters by which Lanidrac makes his claim of ...
  • Actually, there was no mention of "proper exposure" nor any scenic/photographic parameters that would allow you to assume that "proper exposure" must exclude any consideration of pushing shadows ...
  • That was obvious, but instead of the usual endless back-and-forth until the post fills up, isn't it better to simply reference a controlled set of images that addresses the OP's unanswered ...
  • No "struggle" required since DPReview has already done the work for the OP: https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr134_0=canon_eos5dmkiv&attr134_1=canon_eos5dmkiv&attr134_ ...
  • Replied in Amazing!
    Absolutely stunning work. As good as it gets. I also found your camera reviews on your website to be very thoughtful and instructive. Given the depth of your experience with DSLRs and now mFT and ...
  • OV3 is a GIANT pain in the asss to work with due to its slowness. If you're adept with Photoshop or LR, you can achieve a very similar look and effect with a lot less time and effort involved. The ...
  • Of course, it will work "without problems," but your claim was that it would "perform even better on APS-C than on full frame." That's the statement I'm responding to when I say it's not so ...
  • It's not that simple. See my prior posts in this thread for the reasons why.
  • As I explained in my earlier post, the image created  by the same lens on a cropped body will have less of the perimeter issues (typically distortion and vignetting) because those have been ...
  • Yes, you did, but the original statement to which you responded with a "Correct" is incorrect, and your additional commentary primarily related to the liability as between the publisher and ...
  • Lots of people think that IQ increases by using a fullframe lens on a cropped sensor, but there are real IQ tradeoffs involved and it's not a simple one-sided advantage. By using the central ...
