just in case it might be of interest/use for somebody or simply for collection ...

I measured my copy (one copy, not multiple samples, sorry) of DataColor SpyderCheckr 24 with i1Pro2 (one device used) using BabelColor, both in XRGA and non XRGA mode, 5 spectral measurements each time... the attached .zip has 2 x 5 and averaged measurements.

I use daylight LED spots in my lounge directed at the pictures on the walls. There are 4 spots in the centre of the ceiling aimed to where they need to point.

Thanks Tom, that one is from Botany National Park, so just up the road from the Royal. Was there (Royal) last weekend, great place.
I love the way the sandstone here weathers above the waterline, all the little honeycombs and promontories, and colours from white through to almost black.

You might be surprised that everything still works. The Canons are much less fussy than the Epsons about constant use. I typically use my 8300 on a weekly basis, but there have been times over holidays and such when I've gone as much as 3 - 4 weeks without any prints. I realize that your printer has been idle for a longer period of time, but since you're replacing one head anyway, I'd manually agitate the old inks and see how it goes.

Love your first image, it reminds me so much of the Royal National Park which I roamed for years.

Love all the rock shots, never seen a basalt column first hand, would love to correct that sometime.
I have been lucky enough to visit Remarkable Rocks, amazing place (and island.)

Here's a few random ones from local sandstone shores

Panther Rock

An unnamed overhang on a local cliff

Another unnamed (but deserving of one I think) local rock.

Just like the eventual gap between the Otus and the much cheaper AF Sony Zeiss 50 Smiley
I would expect a $200 "plastic fantastic" with similar performance to the Otus to appear as soon as the 40MP sensor moves into the consumer range.

That would be fantastic!

I can understand some things... but I can't understand what the word "redifined" [sic] in the OP's title means... or where it refers to... may he explain please?

OP here, hello…

What I meant was that during the good old film era it was extremely easy to define different formats, it simply was the size of the film which determined it. The image quality was determined by the film size, basically. Along with the film size came different focal length lens sets for each format, which in turn also defined the "look" of each format (mostly lack of DOF with bigger formats). All this was simple because film emulsions were the same for all formats, so IQ was directly tied to the film size.

Now this simple equation size = quality does not hold anymore, as a modern high quality small sensor can and does surpass many so called MF sized sensor in both resolution and especially DR. So what I was suggesting was to redefine MF to mean certain level of IQ regardless of the sensor size. Traditional MF "look" features like shallow DOF can be produced by faster lenses on smaller sensors, so the "look" remains the same.

I am approaching this more from the theoretical angle, scaling a size X sensor up or down with the correct lenses/apertures should give us optically exactly the same results (except diffraction effects). So it should be the end result which determines the "format", not just the sensor size.

Carry on...

...There is quite a difference in being a business man...

The beauty of being a professional photographer, a business man, is that you would be able to devote as much as 10% of your time to photography Wink

Your point, Dwayne, is an absolutely valid one. Just not the only one.
