    DP review new test scene & IQ180/DF/80LS reference

    I was surprised to see the new preview reference test target at the weekend uses the Phase One IQ180/DF/80LS combo as the base at ISO35.

    Now I admit to being biased but it totally blows away the test cameras, especially when considering color. However, I wonder how soon we'll be listening to comparison rationalization from the mirror less & DSLR folks about how well their cameras stack up. (Price aside of course).

    Luckily they kept the reference at ISO35 so it's an easy fight to win. Of course, the D800 puts up a good fight ...

    Are you trying to indicate that a Phase One back is superior to my Nokia in any way?

    While not as revolutionary as the new Pope, the newer review sites are pushing the old dpreves, lower and lower. Not many care about the IQ180 and such either.

    Whilst I doubt that dpreview is pitching IQ180, one of my friends compared his D800 on the site with the IQ and was shocked at how much better the colour and resolution of the Phase One back was compared to his camera, and the canon equivalents. The Nikon was using 85/1.4 @35
