I read lens reviews with great interest - The job can wait ....
The MTF charts tell me of the improving standards and which lenses to drool for.
Now some recent reviews ask whether the actual lens’ performance exceeds the ability of the sensor being used in the tests.
Here is the question the other way round: Which lenses will match the awaited 40+ MP "Hawk-eye" sensor?
Here is my camera-bag:
5Dc and 5D MkII houses
50mm /1.4, Old Tamron 28-200 , TS-E 24 L (old), 16-35 / 2.8 L II, 70-300 L
Recently invested in a 24mm 2.8 IS as my price-dropped, but still expencive - pancake.
Which of them would survive a possible (theoretic) upgrade to a monstrous 40+ MP house? That is: will they give pictures sharp enough to justify the upgrade?
And how many other lenses would?
Will the new multi-MP cameras have many options, other than prime lenses in the future?
Or will we see new lenses with other optical qualities being sacrificed: CA, distortion, vignetting, etc., for higher MTF values?
