Resolution junkies will now be very excited, the DCS-14n delivers more resolution and detail than we have ever seen of our standard studio test scene. However it's clear that moiré artifacts are visible and that in a couple of places the noise reduction system has once again mistaken real image detail for noise and smoothed it over (see the Bailey's label crop - the tree). The EOS-1Ds isn't far behind for resolution but to my eye delivers a smoother more natural looking image with no visible artifacts.
