If you have the lens, make test pictures on a normal day of a very far (almost at infinity) point-like object, like an antenna. Use a tripod, use fast shutter, low ISO, compare the images. You cannot get better comparison than actually doing it yourself! :-)


The Fuji will take better pictures by a country mile. It has larger (and better) lens elements, sensor and built-in stabilisation which will all contribute a lot to improving image quality. But the Fuji will only help if it's with you - otherwise you'll have something else to dust and still be taking snaps on your phone.


1) I have never seen any official information, but various people close to the LR development team indicated at numerous occasions that LR is internally using color space that they named Melissa, which has gamut of ProPhoto RGB, but different gamma. 2) No devices support entire ProPhoto RGB, but many, especially modern inkjet printers, exceed sRGB and even ...


It seems that no-one have touched on the issue of light-sensitive area. Sensors can either be front- or back-illuminated and this will result in different effects when increasing the number of pixels. Front-illuminated sensor A Front-illuminated sensor will have transistors and electrical paths on the light-sensitive side of the sensor. These components ...


I fully agree with Matt's and Steve's answers, but I think one also needs to consider the enormous advantages of having a higher resolution when doing post processing on images. In general, more megapixels will yield much better images if you try to get the most out of post-processing (provided, of course, you are not comparing a bad camera with a large ...
