OT: Yet another "lens cap on test" with a twist...
« on: April 05, 2012, 02:46:04 PM »
After all the posts around here about folks testing their 5D3 by taking pictures with the lens cap on and others debating the relative merits thereof, I could not pass up posting this link:

Pretty amazing.

Pretty useless too, but still, pretty amazing.

The 5diii has been tested as being far superior to the d800 for photographing through the lens cap.  And that bastard Ken Rockwell said the oposite. And.... Oh well.

That Ken Rockwell thread really struck a nerve with you. Maybe we can shop for wigs and house coats together.  :P

This was a pretty good April Fools joke. I would have loved to see some reactions to this before it clicked.
