This little beauty is right at home in this case! This image was shot handheld from a moving boat in low light. Exposure settings were ISO 400 1/125s f9"

This makes sense if you wanted to obtain the 23mm HR lens for your system- and keep it on the camera as a separate extra body.
I know the 23mm barely covers the larger Phase chip so no real movement are necessary- or possible anyway.

One question though; is the 23mm lens covering the whole sensor, or are you having to crop the edges?

The 23 definitely needs an LCC. I assume this is an auto function with the combo, but how about if you just buy the body only?

You don't need LCC although there is a CF from Rodenstock to help with the vignetting which is clearly evident in the sample pics here.

Given that you don't shift at all, distortion and light falloff correction in C1 can easily take care of the file. Since it is fully integrated, the files will contain metadata regarding the lens and apertures which will help C1 to pull up the right lens correction data directly without further need to select the profile from the user.

There's maybe 2-3mm shift. I have one in XT23. Its a great lens for landscape, but really wide so tricky in use.

Hi,

How many stops of vibration compensation does it has? 🤣
Jokes aside, great that Phase One listened to users. No matter how much one tries to stretch the imagination this is a must-have.
Also thanks to the PetaPixel guys for an honest review. Sometimes is hard for the fans to listening to critisims but it's important, as Billy Joel's song goes: Honesty.

The camera is still a little bit expensive, but it includes a lens, and we know Phase One is a luxury brand.

I hope they continue to progress and that this increases the appeal of the platform even further.

Best regards,
