Of course I’m a hypocrite. Given the choice between more money and food for the general population of the time when this cathedral was built, and the very existence of said cathedral in my own time, ready for me to take pictures, I am pretty sure I’d have a hard time choosing the right thing 🙂
I have no idea why I used DxO to process this image. It certainly wouldn’t have been necessary. Fact is I did.
As to the camera: both images, yesterday’s and today’s, are extremely clean and have a lot of dynamic range. I think this camera has more dynamic range than any other Olympus camera and it is extremely sharp as well. 20 megapixels and no low-pass filter make for tremendous image quality. You have to be careful with moiré, but that’s normally a very local problem and easy to fix in post. At least I’ve never had an image that was ruined by unfixable moiré.
Of course I wouldn’t have needed the OM-D E-M1 Mk II, but isn’t it fine to have both cameras with the same resolution?
At that time I had the intention to sell the E-M1 Mk I and the E-P5, but so far I still have both. Why? Well, the prices are ridiculously bad and I didn’t bother. Of course it’s stupid and I should sell them, because what good is it to have them in a closet?
Anyway. This is not the first image taken with the Mk II, but it’s one of the first and it’s the first worth publishing. More to come.
