Medium Format Vs 35mm Zeiss Smackdown


Are you ready to rumble? Maybe not but here is a screen shot of a frame from the A7 and a frame from the Hasselblad H4-50 CCD back. Have a close look. The Sony uses the 50mm Loxia which when placed in the same side by side with both the Nikon and Canon is much better. When I did the comparison with the medium format I was astounded- it made my beloved Loxia look like an 18-55 kit lens. Again, don't take my word for it book a demo and test it yourself. Both images are at 1:1 in Lightroom. It will be interesting to do this with the Canon- if anyone is getting one and wants to compare lets meet up. The door in question is in Marrickville just near Mackey Park. Screen Shot 2015-05-18 at 8.15.17 pm JPEGS from the two files are included below. The settings are- JPEG 100% Quality 72 DPI Apart from that they are full size and untouched.
