    Time for a little Sunday Insanity

    Looking for a little amusement today? I just posted a lens comparison, Leica v. Sigma v. Panasonic with a little contest on Everything Foto

    Re: Time for a little Sunday Insanity

    Sorry, never saw the point of downsizing images to equalize to other files, then making sub one meg sRGB 900 pixel jpegs for evaluation ... it's like chaining a blindfolded champion boxer to a bolted down chair, and setting a pack of armed midgets on him

    All anyone can do is guess ... #1/D3, #2/Lumix, #3/S2

    -Marc

    P.S., the only really crazy thing here may be Vodka made in Austin Texas

    I'm having a little fun, not doing a bench test. By the way, Tito's Handmade Vodka is quite good - Are you one of those high faulting' Grey Goose or Belvedere guys in a hipster fedora ;-)

    Seriously - you should try it. It gets great write-ups.

    Marc please post your guesses as a comment on the blog per the instructions please. I can't keep up with them on the forums.

    D3, S2, Panasonic. The Pansonic is the easiest as it is 4:3.

    I downsized some pictures for the web, and I was surprised how much better the Hasselblad H3D 50/studio flash pictures were compared to the GH2/with normal studio lighting.

    Re: Time for a little Sunday Insanity

    Since it was a lens test I think I'm the only one who got the numbers+names right (i.e. Leica, Sigma and Olympus) but that was only going by the EXIF data:-)

    Sorry Yaya, you violated the rules of the USLTA and are therefore disqualified from collecting this life-changing award. MarkoRepse is the winner. I sent him an email asking for his postal address so I can mail him his $10 Starbucks card.
