F70EXR can achieve Critical Sharpness!

Ok ... I found an example from the Crombie McNeill workshop last weekend that blows my mind with its sharpness. This is shot at 115mm and shows just how much detail that this camera is capable of rendering in moderate light ... the shutter speed would have been 1/25s at 1600 ISO without the -1EV compensation I used to keep her skin from getting to bright, so not so much light ...

This images is tweaked in ACR but otherwise straight from the camera ... take note of the globs of mascara on her eyelashes and the texture of the skin below her right eye. Very nice ...


Remember to click on the image to see this screen shot at 100%.

Very very nice indeed!
I really like my F200EXR and it has that same level of detail your work shows.
But not the reach :(
I may very well end up getting the F70, I have a buyer for my idle F60fd; that will ease the guilt then, won't it?

Thanks Sue ... the little cam continues to surprise me. Lili ... the guilt will always be there ... this hobby is way too expensive :-)
