The other deal-breaker for me is second-rate color rendition. Sure, colors look fine to 99% of the general public who buy this, but to a Colorist like me for whom color is everything, the colors don't sing anywhere near as well as they do on my Nikons or Canons. In fact, my iPhone 5 even has better color rendition.
I'm an artist. When I speak of color rendition, I'm speaking of how well the camera interprets reality, not laboratory accuracy. Lab accuracy isn't relevant to me — I just need the photos to look great! right out of the camera.
That's a lot even for his standards.
his "standards" are +maximum on saturation.
and he is shooting JPG´s.
the guys a clown nothing more.
i guess 90% here know that... but i always find it dangerous to quote "ken "oh the colors" rockwell without making that crystal clear.
Full Disclosure - I get a kick out of reading Ken. I think many take him too literally, half of his stuff is meant in a satirical way and the other half is often not too far off. Most folks don't need
most of the high end crap that is marketed to death every year by the big camera names. If people want to spend the high $$ because they can afford it, great. But honestly, if someone knows what they're doing, they can create great images with a rebel and a decent EF lens or two. D series bodies and L lenses aren't required. (Except for the 5Dc, that was a game changer for me and it won't break the bank either.)
That being said however, I also smirked when I was reading his comment (quoted above) about the color rendition, him being an artist, etc because I immediately thought the same thing as you: high saturation colors. However, that's his style. I don't fault him for it, that's just his thing.
