    Ready to start reviews today

    Just FYI Jack is here. The S2 is here with 70 and 180mm. The P40+ is here with the new DF body and we have handy the P30+, P65+. Also the X1 is here and okay the damn thing is cute as a button. LOL

    Off to shooting. This is going to be fun

    Re: Ready to start reviews today

    So just a teaser report at the AM break, we can put one thing to rest: Initial image reviews comparing the S2 with the 180 mounted, the P40+ with the 150/2.8 AFD, and the P65+ with both the 200 APO manual and the 75-150 zoom in the studio, all shots at approximately the same image magnification ratio, the bottom line is the net detail at the pixel level is virtually identical between all these backs and across all of the lenses. Of course this makes sense given they are all 6 micron backs, but requires the lenses deliver at that resolution and they all appear to be doing so -- and also insures that any technical sloppiness will be seen. For example, even at f11 and portrait distances with any of these combos, what I'd consider crisp DoF was maybe an inch tops. Also note, the P40+ and the S2 have about the same number pixels across the frame and the P65+ obviously has more, so gives you a wider view or some cropability or both over the other two...

    PS: We won't be putting any images in this thread, but will load the official review up with them, including a bunch of raws from each camera you can download and play with.

    LOL . Hell whats a hundred grand to play around with.


    Been a busy day, shot the models most of the day in and out of studio and we move on to the great outdoors at 5am driving south. Should be another long day but yes everything is working just fine per say. Lots of processing and organizing of files yet to be done. This may take awhile but hopefully worth it in the end. Day 1 28gbs of data shot. We are in big boy land here. BTW BUY BUY Buy the Passport color checker , really like it
