Olympus EM 5 Mark II, Canon 5DS, new Sony lenses

 

Olympus EM 5 Mark II

Canon 5DS

New Sony lenses

 

A quick pre-conclusion

 

Canon has chosen a smart strategy to face the war of MP. They’re offering an insane amount of MP for the pros who need them. Think that 50MP and a system very kind in order to let you managed the mirror (to lock up) is a system that work with tripod.

 

Landscape and fashion and commercial product photographers are the target.

 

I don’t think that 50MP in a full frame sensor yield excellent ISO 6400. It’s obvious that ISO 1600 or 3200 will satisfy the 90% of situations when you are able to command over light sources.

 

This 50MP camera is not exactly a medium-format gear. The sexy Pentax 645Z, a genuine medium format, owns a 2.15 inch sensor… And you have to pay for this baby $ 8.500. The new Canon price is less than $4000. But really size matters?

 

When you examine at 100%, the difference between the Pentax and a 36MP camera, you don’t find advantages for MF.  So, I’m very sure that if your bread with butter are billboards this 5DS should make your day.

 

EM 5 II of OLYMPUS is a surprise and a bizarre surprise. The 16MP remains. What a pitty!!! If you love studio work then this new EM-5 is a cheap way to obtain impressive huge files, almost like a Sony a7R… Yes. A 16MP is able to reach a 36MP and without blood of your wallet (the EM-5 II just begs you $ 1.100 to be yours).

 

And how does it work for God sake???

 

The way is the “High Resolution mode” that allows you to obtain files of 40MP in JPEG  and (take a glass of water) 64MP in RAW. The sensor is able to move meanwhile 8 frames are captures; then they are combined and voila !!!

 

Imaging Resource (www.imaging-resource.com/) and other sites has published the JPEG and despite of  some tiny issues (at 100%) they are excellent. The bad story is that this mode just works in studio conditions.

 

AND SONY is boring me. There are a bunch of glasses coming right now, but I don’t find a precious zoom for street. A 24-240mm??  It`s just for tourists. I need a more compact lens with a medium reach, it`s a joke this 10X zoom.

 

I’ll be here waiting for a surprise from Fujifilm (???)  or for a 5D Mark IV that weights only 500g.
