That was nothing more than a 25 minute infomercial.
Knowing that going in, I didn't waste any time actually watching it.
sad think is that he's trying to look serious and professional
I'd like to know where/how he got the (relative) numbers for sharpness of lenses?
22MPx of 5D mk II * 1.0909 + kit lens = 8MPxwhere 1.0909 is some magic number so he can say D800E has 50% more resolution
looks too funny to be taken serious, but if someone does nothing (like John Snow ) then he could get convinced it's the way it really works
It comes from DXO's perceptual sharpness value, aka turn all the resolution data from a lens into a single number. The best part is that he spends 1/2 the video using those numbers as the basis for all of his comparisons and then in the second half he has a section where he looks at a specific lens, and comes to the conclusion that even though the perceptual sharpness number looked incredible for a certain lens, it turned out to be unusably soft. Oops.
