Pop Quiz – 5Dmk3, NEX7 or GX1?

May 24, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I’ve been toying with “little” cameras recently trying to decide on a system to go with for a general carry-round camera.  I took some shots today with the Sony NEX-7, Panasonic GX1 and for comparison, the Canon 5Dmk3.

 

For a bit of a mess around, I took some shots of the same flowers in the same lighting conditions with all 3 cameras.  The setup was:

  • Canon 5Dmk3 with Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS lens
  • Sony NEX7 with Sony 18-55OSS (kit lens)
  • Panasonic GX1 with Panasonic 14-42 X lens (kit lens)
All cameras were used in aperture priority mode, auto ISO on compacts and I selected the ISO for the 5Dmk3 (as I’m more used to it). Metering was all done by the camera in evaluative (or equivalent) mode.  The images were processed from RAW in all cases, using Lightroom 4.1 RC2 with various settings in a way that I would normally process the images.  I tried to do it as blindly as possible and not base the processing on which camera the shot came from.
 
Have a go at guessing which camera these are from (don’t rely on the aspect ratio as most have been cropped deliberately – some by a lot).  If you want to guess, then be careful when you scroll down as the answers are at the bottom of the page…

I’ll leave a bit of a gap here before saying the answers…
