Topic: Is the image quality hype over
This is not very related to manual gear. Just a few thoughts ...
I am wondering why the most test-journals and realted internet sites still have the focus on image quality. It seems to me that in the meantime most of the consumer cameras are able to deliver excellent image quality with low noise and superb sharpness.
I own thee digital cams: First, the GF1, it produces perfect images in bright light, maybe a liitle too noisy in darker environment. But very reliable metering. Now 3 years old.
For the X-E2 and EOS 6D I can't imagine what could be better. I make my pictures only for printing in A3, and each of my cams is able to produce images which let me print outstanding pictures. It is nothing else than a dream.
So when I read dpreview for example, comparing iq and and other parameters, I often ask myself: Why am I doing this anymore?
