I agree that it's got it's limitations, however, I'd be very interested in the camparative performance of those two lenses - they are, after all, of an equivalent focal length, and a very useful one as well.I think it is a futile exercise. If you can use the same lens on both the cams, that will show the differences and those will be predictable.
As I am working with the D700 right now (my backup for MFDigital) I would be interested if
I find such comparisons uninteresting, personally. I already know what a D700 can do, and I've already become quite aware of what the E-5 can do in technical terms. I'm quite satisfied with the E-5's capabilities and my current lens kit.
Resolution will be identical, or nearly so. Before, I'd give the edge to the D700 based on comparing it with a D300, but against the E-5, which has no AA filter, the Olympus might edge it. In terms of noise, there will be no contest, the D700 will clobber the E-5. I'd pay attention to deep blue skies at low ISO. Likely the E-5 will show noise in it on close examination.
yes, I am - and impressed and heartened too - I'll be really glad to see that Oly have finally cracked it with an excellent camera.In LR3 up to 1600 ISO, E5 jpegs win over Nikon Nefs, IMHO.
Above that NEFs win , 6400ISO NEF give a pleasent film-like grain, Oly's are unusable IMHO.
We are not surprised, are we?
