First walk in the woods with Q7

I am floored by the iso 800 and 1600 performance. iso3200 requires a mild noise reduction. The bokeh is way beyond what I expected. Here are 2 shots I just took that demonstrate those qualities:

shots made at default everything in Q7 except I used Vibrant mode while in the shadows of the woods. No post processing or cropping.

you want bokeh?



you want clean iso1600?



One walk in the woods and I am SOLD on this little body.

According to the EXIF it was the 15-45mm/f2.8 although I used 4 different lenses during the walk and was happy with the output from all of them. Surprisingly the fish-eye worked perfectly without visible vignetting...which I was expecting. The 01 Prime was excellent also.

Great images and report. Do you have a Q to compare the fisheye coverage with? Wondering how much extra field of view we gain with the Q7? If you do not have a Q/Q10, do the Q7 FE shots have the same file size as your other Q7 shots? This would give an indication of the amount of trimming on the Q7.
thanks

Yes, I was afraid of this. Good thing I'll be poor for a while!


Once we've sold bought and moved, maybe then I can consider new toys for the photo attic
shot with the Q 'classic'

I do have a Q to compare with but thought it was faster to calculate the FOV than to take shots and measure it. Like you, I wondered about the Fisheye and liked what I go on the Q7 with it. did not measure the FOV however...

Thanks Lee, I am impressed with your shots from the Q7; I will add that to my shopping list next time I go to Japan.
