  2. Actually, in the review the softness was an issue when the Canon's
    sharpening was set to "0", which turns off in-camera sharpening. When
    set to "1" (of a possible 0 to 5) the sharpness was very similar to the

    What an idiot this guy is. The reviewers clearly stae that they used
    the lowest sharpening for the Canon, and the reolution charts clearly
    show the Canon to have superior reolution.

    And, by the way for the grammerically challenged such as "Rich", the
    proper pronoun is "its", not "it's" - as most 5th graders are aware.

    Also Rich might have missed in the review:
    "Note also that the D2X is handed a slight advantage in that we had to use
    the 24-70 mm L zoom lens on the EOS-1Ds Mark II, we typically use a 50 mm
    prime lens but that wouldn't have given us the same frame coverage on the
    EOS-1Ds Mark II (we wouldn't be able to get close enough to the scene). Note
    that this also means that the EOS-1Ds Mark II had a shallower DOF in these
    comparisons. "

  7. way to troll Rich!!

    For someone that doesn't own a DSLR you sure do LOVE to talk about them.

  8. Actually love to talk about their petty flaws mainly. I wonder if you ever
    sat at home with your lupe examining an area equating to 12% of a 35mm
    negative and proclaiming Chromatic Abberation.

    I really can't see why any of these statistics or reviews being of any
    importance to you because you don't have a DSLR and even if you did I doubt
    you would ever get any further than noise/resolution tests.

    Your epitaph will undoubtedly read.

    BTW; Sharpness does NOT = resolution.

  12. Don't worry Rich, it works just fine with Zeiss and Lecia lenses.
    Besides you won't be let down since you don't have any kind of DLSR.

    You are correct about the lenses. Now more horribly blurred edges,
    and chromatic aberration for this fellow.
