Well, it's all a bit subjective. Here's a 1600 iso image shot in low light conditions with a 30d. Is there any difference? Maybe, but which is better?
Almost as I typed LR was upgraded. Have done a few test shots. Distant shots look soft while close ups are really sharp. Will have to investigate the settings.
I uploaded a montage of a few test photo's I took trying the camera out. Its my latest upload if you want to see it.
Off to print some for the real test.
I notice the price has fallen again, at this rate it will be free with a memory card by Christmas.
Is there some panic out there?
Thanks for the upload John
Mine was an off the cuff shot but I was quite impressed with the outcome
Weather is good at this end so hopefully off in a bit to do some field shots
Looked good to me Adrian, looking forward to getting one of these myself.
5D is the one you want, Paul...
OK I have not posted my full conclusions till now because I was confused. In the end my thoughts are;
The 40D is a great handling camera and for wildlife and sports I think it represents a major upgrade for me but for landscapes it represents virtually no upgrade for me. The problems is where I want big prints are from my landscapes.
I re-samples the ISO100 images to 22inch high images at 300 DPI and sharpened them to suit (it was almost the same setting required). I then cut out 11 inch slices from the images for my A4 printer. I cannot spot and difference in resolution/noise. This was the conclusion I came to when I also tried the 20D.
For landscapes I am invariably using the camera on a tripod @ ISO100. Response time buffer etc, who cares.
So for up to A3 prints at ISO100 I cannot see a measurable difference. I tried a 5D, and I could see a difference at A3 size.
So my conclusion is the 40D is an improved 30D, and my 300D, but not a large step on in image quality for me. Bugger.
Will I buy a 40D, possibly as a 5D looks too expensive, but the urge to rush out and get one has gone. Oh and I did all this expecting the 40D to blow my 300D in the weeds, just like my 300D did to images produced by my previous cameras.
Now if I did a lot of sports work my views would be different.
