    @ lee

    because it is no reason throwing premature and unverified stuff around on a unereleased camera.

    but

    dragon is "more"

    a lot "more"

    dr
    fidelity
    rez
    smoothness

    and "less" noise.

    just pure bliss

    but that is why... :-)

    I understand the private or copyrighted studio stuff, though some shots with gorgeous vintage glass on would've been great to look at, I bet. Recently one generous gentleman allowed me to play with his respectable collection of really old and some rather rare still glass. One weekend and I fell in love with much of the oldies, but I had to return them back to the owner. There's something "else" about the old lenses, I can't quite put my finger on it.

    Older coatings (ie more flares, less contrast, more forgiving on highlights), vintage bokeh (less corrected designs, so more prone to swirls and other oddetites). The accumulation of older choices leads to interesting "organic" looks.

    You are so the right person to be testing.... so scientific and systematic. Now I want one.

    OK...

    I will post three testshots.

    nothing really beautyful, I am afraid, and not all now.

    This is shot directly at the sun with a 16mm Ultraprime @ T22

    Not a hint of polkadots
    Not a hint of overexposure-distortion..

    (and if you are curious: overexposure behaviour is the intent of this, NOT recoverability. See how lovely Dragon fades into pure white...!)

    nJoy!

    Love what Jarred and the team are doing, letting the biggest contributors and older Redusers and owners test the Dragon. Talk about a company that respects and values its community and users. I'm staying right here for my next camera purchases.
