The first part is very useful for me as the zf 100/2 is the lens I own. Love it
btw. Thanks for your reasoned response.
The second part..thanks again for taking the trouble to respond, but should
it not be then compared more to the M9? A 35mm FF camera without an AA filter?
Please do not misunderstand me. I just felt that comparing the Nikon D800 to a MF was somehow not doing justice to the MF and its complement of lenses for the situations it is geared towards. Concurrently, the D800/D800E is expected to perform better in situations playing to its strengths. Of course,
one can take a picture of anything with anything ( well almost!!)
Each camera has an advantage...be it weight/price/low light etc...and its
disadvantages. Some people use both an MF and a 35mm dslr and play each camera to its strengths.
I just feel that with the current technology, if those who put food on the table for their families using their cameras, were convinced that a 35mm FF could get a job done equally well in lieu of a MF; they would use the one that saved them money and provided the same quality to their clients as an MF.
I am hesitant, my ignorance to blame here, to compare my D-Lux 4 to my
Leica M8. Both have roughly the same number of pixels. Leica glass. F/2
aperture. The D-Lux4 has ventured where the M8 would fear to tread..in a
sandstorm. It really is unfair to compare these two. Unfair to both.
