...just in case anybody missed it. Now this is going to be interesting to see some Digital Zuikos on the testing rig! Looking forward to...

Re: DPReview LensTesting

errrm... I must be missing something here I'm afraid. I don't see any Zuiko lenses on that page? Should there be one?

Re: DPReview LensTesting

They probably haven't done any Olympus lens tests yet.

There are Olympus lens tests here though.

Re: DPReview LensTesting

You know how they always talk about the 'High iso' advantage of a 'Full Frame' Canon and the ability to use 35mm film wide angle lenses at their 'normal' viewing angle?

Take a look at the Canon 24-105 f/4 L results on a 'Full Frame', see how far it has to be stopped down to prevent vignetting.

I'll just use an E-3 and shoot iso 400 @ f/2.8 rather than spend a fortune on a 'Full Frame' and shoot f/8 @ 3200 thanks very much

Just seen this today:- It will put the emphasis back on full frame.

Sony announces development of 35mm CMOS sensor
Pre-PMA 2008: In a surprise move Sony today announced its entry into the rapidly-expanding 24x36mm imaging sensor market with its own 24.81 megapixel CMOS offering. Joining Canon and Nikon in the full-frame market, this new chip promises to output all pixels at 6.3 fps with lower noise than other designs of similar pixel-pitch thanks to its “Column-Parallel A/D Conversion Technique” whereby each column of photosites is given its own Analogue to Digital Converter. The ADCs themselves are 12-bit, flying in the face of current trends which are toward 14-bit devices but the combination of speed, dynamic range and sheer resolving power displayed by this sensor make it one to watch for when Sony puts into full production hopefully before the year is out.
