Comment on Sony A7R II vs. A7 II – Print Test by Jason http://admiringlight.com/blog/sony-a7r-ii-vs-a7-ii-print-test/#comment-235498 Thu, 03 Sep 2015 18:09:04 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=5394#comment-235498 You mention the croppability of the a7RII, and I’m now interested in seeing a comparison of prints from a 24 megapixel crop from the a7RII versus the full size frame of the a7II. How well do those smaller pixels print compared to the larger ones in the a7II?

Comment on Fuji 56mm f/1.2 vs. Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 vs. Contax G 90mm f/2.8 by Jordan Steele http://admiringlight.com/blog/fuji-56mm-f1-2-vs-zeiss-batis-85mm-f1-8-vs-contax-g-90mm-f2-8/#comment-235487 Thu, 03 Sep 2015 13:00:56 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=5532#comment-235487 Two things:

1) My A7RII review sample had already been sent back by the time I did this test (I only had it overlapped with the Batis for one day).

2) My Techart adapter is version 2, and not firmware updatable for PDAF.

I was wondering about the improved speed accuracy (?)

Comment on Sony A7 II vs. Sony A6000 – Landscape Use by Pete http://admiringlight.com/blog/sony-a7-ii-vs-sony-a6000-landscape-use/#comment-235464 Wed, 02 Sep 2015 22:17:31 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=4529#comment-235464 Nice one. A neat real world comparison that clearly confirms (once again) that at base ISO or just above the images from APS/DX and FF are barely discernible. It’s probably an area for psychologists to pore over why some people get very upset about this being so ; D

Best,
Pete

Comment on Review: Carl Zeiss 16-70mm f/4 Vario-Tessar T* ZA OSS by Jordan Steele http://admiringlight.com/blog/review-carl-zeiss-16-70mm-f4-vario-tessar/#comment-235435 Wed, 02 Sep 2015 11:16:12 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=3509#comment-235435 Well, you have the combination, so you’ll be the best judge. You’re getting a 15 megapixel APS-C crop. That’s the same as shooting with any high quality 15 megapixel APS-C camera, and as such image quality will be similar. Will it cause issues? Of course not. Unless printing at larger than 12×18″ you’ll be hard pressed to see any difference at all between the cropped and full images with regards to final quality. I’m actually in the process of writing an article about how our image quality perceptions have changed over the past 15 years, which will address a bit of this point. 16 megapixels was good enough for professional fashion photographers and landscape photographers 10 years ago…it will do fine for most everyone.

Thanks

Comment on “Full Frame Equivalence” and Why It Doesn’t Matter by heh http://admiringlight.com/blog/full-frame-equivalence-and-why-it-doesnt-matter/#comment-235345 Tue, 01 Sep 2015 02:03:30 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=1541#comment-235345 I must say, after carrying my FF bag with total weight of 5kg couple of times, I’m starting to wonder if it’s time to leave FF behind and move MFT. a body = 1kg, a premium 50mm lens = 1kg , a wide angle zoom = 600-850g , a 500g portrait lens, a 755g tele lens and a 1.2kg bag .. Only alternative is to start using some 24-105 zoom lens, but those distort terribly badly. I might start doing it little by little, keeping my FF for BIF (I have a lightweight teleprime for bif), but other than that I’m very disappointed at how things have been going..

Impressive for the Contax G. I would love to see these two lenses compared on the A7RII, especially now that the Tech-Art adapter supports PDAF. Thanks for the comparison.
