ok, just for fun this morning! I wanted to take photos of these beautiful Plumeria rubra ‘Kaneohe Sunburst’, so I decided to try them out with the M5 and two different but similar lenses.
Both sets of images were imported to FastStone picture viewer and exported without ANY edits as jpg to my desktop folder.
Both images were shot with the same settings i.e. for the first two images ; ISO 320, f/8, and 1/60th slightly different focal lengths but that shouldn’t really affect the image output. Let me know what you think?
both are on the same picture style and WB settings also, everything is the same.
Ok this second set of images were taken at ISO 250, f/8, and again 1/60th.
Now bearing a few things I have read recently, I think that we can with near certainty say that it is the lenses that dictates what strength of color and general rendition comes out in the final image, not the camera. Along with, as I have read recently, which software you use to manage your raw files, but as I used the same software for both that also has no bearing on the effect of the output of these images.
Granted this is not strictly a scientific experiment, or I would have had my tripod out, and been taking them at exactly the same focal lengths. This was just a casual bit of fun, but still very telling for me, so what are your thoughts? just for fun! which one do you prefer?
