After DxO's Ecstasic Numbers - D7000 or K200D

DxO results, DxO mischhelengruts, I am not making any comments yet, just take your pick between (1) or (2) which one is D7000 ? K-5 results will be a follow up of this thread. Don't bother to look, EXIF's are stripped. Pictures are just cropped and re-sized to make sure they look same.

The point is K-5 results will most probably close to D7000's results. Even lens will be the same Sigma macro 70mm (DG BE?)

Results will be announced 7 days later from now on.

Pictures are lined up, first two pictures belong to one camera, last two to another.

Ahhhh this'll be fun.

I did something on another forum, (a few years back now), with the old *Ist DS and a 1Ds MkII image and the majority of voters preferred the image from the *Ist DS.

Now for your set of images I think the second set belong to the D7000. They look slightly cleaner and appear to have a bit more detail in certain areas.

Looking forward to seeing the results.

bazz.

Theoretically, the human eye should be unable to tell 800px wide images from a good compact, a dSLR or a medium format apart (except if at low light).

In order to tell two images both from an APSC dSLR apart, then the differences must have been massive in the originals.

For the sake of the information both 100 ISO originals are at:

To my eyes, originals look similar as crops to me... K200D is sharper, I don't know if there is something wrong with my eyes. No need to mention colors, they are jpegs anyway.

The second set is higher resolution (the lines on the scale are a dead giveaway) so I'm going to say D7000 on those. The first set is punchier/contrastier which might lead some people to subconsciously prefer it.

Found the images. Why didn't you say in the first place?

So, the first is a 100% crop (sharpened in camera by the JPG engine) and the 2nd is a crop after downsampling to K200D resolution. I.e., not both photos are downsampled.

BTW, Imaging Resource once explained that these test shots are not controlled for best focus (it's not their intention to showcase resolution).

Anyway, after a proper a downsampling routine, the 2nd photo looks like this (cf. attachment). It's pretty clear which is which, isn't it?

Unless white balance was modified, I personally think the second set is similar to what I've seen with the *ist series and K10D, but what do I know.

Thanks for the efforts, but isn't that unfair you didn't apply your method for the first camera too? (names are still secret, votes going to interesting results, I will statistically.compare and report error rates).

One may think so indeed.

However, as we all know, the final sharpening is done in print resolution. In one case, we already see the print resolution which had proper sharpening applied in-camera. In the other case, I applied it as part of the downsampling process, just like what LR does in its export process (I didn't use LR though).

BTW, I tried to sharpen the other image too and it didn't really help.
