I cropped into some images and enlarged them to full page. However, camera manufacturers are bringing some amazing wide lenses to the market now. I’ve also recently purchased the Panasonic 7-14mm for my GH4 and it’s a kick ass wide lens. I have twice had the privilege of seeing Gregory Heisler’s work in print. There’s a photo he has of Cal Ripken that was shot with a large format camera.
You know what happened between my D200 and the Fuji x100? During the time I was saying, “full frame sensors are the way to go,” crop sensors were getting better and better and better. Everything has gotten better but I’d argue that the difference in image quality from crop to full frame has narrowed significantly. That “focus gradient” for lack of a better term, or, how the field of focus works with large format film and optics. Large format cameras and lenses give you this “look” that just can’t be achieved with smaller formats. You need to have the experience of shooting large format at least once in your life. 🙂 Above you see David Burnett working an old 4×5 Speed Graphic in Dubai. Lastly, check out this post over at Wonderful Machine’s blog about Austin Hargrave photographing Dany De Vito with an 8×10.
Then I started putting the Q&A book together and I had the chance to run pages of test prints for the book. My Fuji images ran side by side with D3 and 5d2 images without a single noticeable drop in quality. The thing that made me stop and stare though is the focus falls off.

I received the test prints back and I taped them to the wall and took one step back. It has a shallow depth of field and the background is out of focus.
Field of view is way different than depth of field. Then I’ll add the micro 4/3’s Panasonic GH4 to the mix with the Panasonic/Leica 42.5mm lens. It is my contention (and argument and hypothesis) that focal length is causing the greatest change in what we’re seeing. The wider the lens, the deeper, or longer the depth of field. Look at the same 85mm lens on a full frame D3 and then on the Fuji APS crop sensor.
