Looking for some specific pictures

To see if I can quieten a full frame DSLR disciple I would like to show him some pictures taken of gymnasts doing acrobatic manoeuvres using the OMD EM1 Mkii.

Just to prove a point. (If I can)

Can any one point me to some.

Re: Looking for some specific pictures

I can't offer any, Derek, but we really can't expect to defeat the laws of physics, even though the Oly and Sony engineers are coming closer to doing that with every new model!

It's only in the area of low-light signal-to-noise ratio that larger sensors now indisputably rule the roost: as ever it depends on the use to which you're going to put the images (Facebook, Flickr, club projected image competitions, 12 x 16" prints, 16 x 20" prints etc etc), but if you want to shoot indoor sports you need superb focusing plus low noise at high ISO, and quite a few pixels so you can crop a lot.

The 1ii will do the first of these as well as anything south of a D500, and it's not bad for the third... however...

The photonstophotos site is good on this if you want what is probably the most objective comparative data available - one point of interest is that the dynamic range of the 1ii is pretty indistinguishable from that of the Fuji XT2 (crop sensor), and is significantly better than that of the Canon 7D mkii at ISOs below around 18000: http://photonstophotos.net/Charts/PD...M1%20Mark%20II

Fiddling round with that graph might shut him up for a while! On the other hand I'd suggest he just gets out and takes some more pictures.

Too much Oly gear.
