Thank for the feedback John, my feathers are still held firmly in place
I say to the digicam stitch analogy and I invite you to compare your creamy 39MP digicam to this "thing" as soon as your nearest Leaf dealer get their demo unit in a few weeks time
We are I am sure all grateful to you for posting these examples here on the LL Forum. And I didn't really mean to be rude about your whizzy new back. But I do spend just about every evening working on RAW files from my MF back in Lightroom, so by now I think I have something of a "feel" for how I expect them to look. I expect there are several reasons why I was a bit underwhelmed -
* As others have noted, this is a pre-production example. Firmware will be different.
* The files I am looking at are JPEG, not RAW. This must affect quality at 100%.
* The landscape subjects you have chosen seem very flatly lit, so I am not getting a feel for edge contrast and "pop".
I think you have made the assumption that the subject that would show off your back the best would be something with amazing amounts of tiny detail. Well, yes, but all that really demonstrates is that you can print with this back to A1 rather than A2, and have as good a resolution as a 40MP back but twice as big (I think most of us already had that figured out, anyway). Which is all very well if you are into posters or wall-sized prints, but it doesn't really say anything about pictorial quality
. I would rather see two or three really cracking pictures which pop off the screen and where tiny detail is just part of the story. And which show me something which I can't do with my 39MP, other than bigness.
