"... tired, red 18mp sensors."
I gotta admit, that gave me a good 'ole chuckle!!!
Thanks for the perspective of a medium format user. Very informative.
Me, personally, I think technology is my b*tch to be use as I see fit. If I could afford it I'd dabble across brands... The concept of using digital backs on standard bodies makes sense and allows an upgrade and scalability path. I wish I had the time/money to play with such amazing tech.
I used to kinda scoff at $9K leica users until I sued one and saw the image off of an M9 from a film lens that was like 20 years old. Really something.
However, I have to say, the images we are getting today off ANY system is surpassing anything we had just a decade ago. THATS kinda where I chose to lose myself in... between the fidelity of the image, the capture ability between the fast lenses and AF systems, and the convenience and range of the post processing ability... heck you want to talk softness.. I throw lensbabies on a 22 MP camera! I think its really the impact of what you are shooting. And you always hear people asking what did you use to shoot something with, or what software you used, as if THATS the reason why the image looks so good, not because of your eye and talent.
Now as far as MAC and PC.. we ALL know which one is better!!
