Following up on the distracting artifacts discussed in post #115 of http://www.getdpi.com/forum/630121-post115.html with regards to a JPG and an ORF hi res shot, I would like to compare the OOC JPG images taken with E-M1, E-M5, and E-M5 Mark II, both lo and hi res and the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 40-150/2.8 PRO lens at 150 mm, f/4, ISO 200 and 1/250 s.
E-M1, crop of 2498x2498
E-M5, crop of 2564x2565
E-M5 Mark II, lo res, crop of 2565x2565
E-M5 Mark II, hi res, crop of 4058x4060
In taking the images I also followed Robin Wong's
Robin Wong: Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Review
practice and used the following camera settings:
• Noise Filter = OFF,
• Contrast/Saturation/Sharpness = 0,
• White Balance = Auto (with an option maintain warm color = OFF),
• Gradation = Normal
I only straightened the OOC JPG images and cropped them. No further processing in post.
The subject features should pretty much align, provided the cropped JPG images get mapped to the same size.
You be the judge to which degree artifacts are visible in these JPG crops.
I appreciate honest, unvarnished feedback and constructive criticism. Thank you.
