M42 split screen

That complicates things a bit but i could use other lenses with Praktica MTL 50 and use takumars with a Pentax body. Most of the time I'll have either a 50 or a 35mm on the camera anyway :)

Any way to distinguish the one with the split prisim from the one without? Except by looking through the focusing screen that is. F would be a perfect camera for me if i could find one with a split prism...

I have bought a Praktica MTL 50. A pretty good camera, double diagonal split screen a d a meter powered by common batteries.
I also have few Pentacon and Zenit lenses. Now aiming to buy a few takumars and I'd like to pair them with a Pentax camera. But i just need that split screen focusing screen to focus properly...

Push the RAWs trough a denoising software. JPEG engine of D7200 is more basic than in D750. And even on SOOC JPEGs i cant see it "very visibly noisier". Id call that slight and not worth the price difference. Put those 2 photos in front of a customers and hell see no difference at all. Besides, i see darker greys going to black faster on D750 on this photo than on D7200. Human eye is not trained for small scale sharpness or small objects but for visible strong patterns, colors and big shapes.

What can a FF do significantly better than crop?

Lets take the lenses and other gear into consideration also, the price for the kit hits 1000€ difference in no time.

All I'm saying here is from hypothetical POV. If DSLRs were made from ground up with crop sensors in mind, there would really be small chance for users to really consider FF. But marketing got the best of us. Camera companies get bigger margins on FF. And we are sheep :)

1. AF can be made equal
2. FPS can be made equal
3. metering can be made equal
4. lens focal lengths and light gathering can be made equal
5. high ISO difference is so small that isnt really relevan
6. how much thin DOF do you need? A 85 1.8 on crop is borderline usable :D
7. there were billboard size prints made with D1, i dont think much more resolution is needed anyway.

Slight advantages of FF are really extreme niche. General use photography is better suited with crop.

Yes, as I said, the success of FF DSLRs is mostly because of legacy. There arent really any inherent technical reasons for digital FF to be (visibly) superior crop.



Its because of lenses used, 85 1.8 is a better lens than 50 1.8, but just look at general noise, tonality and DR. Not much difference to see. Print them and there will be none. If the lenses of same quality were used for both photos, youd see no difference at all even when viewing on a PC.

Yes, legacy is impairing the full potential of APS-C. but if focal flange was shorter, things would be pretty much on par.

But this is the only of the 2 ways to assess the image quality. the other one would be to print it so you can see that yourself when i post the photos.
in the mean time, here are the SOOC JPEGs
Studio shot comparison: Digital Photography Review
Dont pixel peep, view at normal viewing size or better, print them. Youll see - no major visible difference besides some lens distortion...

Ill pass the samples from DPReview low light image comparison scene made with D750 and D7200 when i get back home, and ill post them here, you will see that they are visually indistinguishable. Yes, image software can detect slight difference. As can anyone if they pixel peep. But try them or viewing at normal viewing size or even better - printing them - no difference at all.

yes, but those desing requirements dont differ from FF to APS-C. Nikon's lens is a 13mm one. It covers FF it was made in 1976. Of course it was big. Modern technology could make the lens of that performance a lot smaller now days.

Thats not a question for me but for Pentax :) Probably they didnt have R&D funds, focused on something else or havent deemed it necessary as there wasnt any competition on K mount

---------- Post added 10-02-19 at 10:22 AM ----------



but I have that experience and there is no visible difference. Besides, anyone can check that. there are plenty of sample images on the web. Push the same ones through pp and anyone can see that there really isnt that much to FF. Its a myth.
