    Interesting exercise comparing high-end setup with low-end. I guessed the one on the right was the Zeiss lens but hard to say which photo I preferred. Thanks.

    Nice video. But the bigger question is..... was it the camera, or the lens. Would the Zeiss lens on the D200 and the D5 with the cheap lens give the same result, but the other was around?

    I also preferd the image on the left because of the better whit balance, not surpricingly if it had been fixed in post as I learned later on in the video...
    I think it should have been left unprocessed to make a fair comparison.

    Matt I love the way your Facebook post dropped here with the video! You have a fantastic site, I must work on mine! Whoever's doing it for you is good. BTW, I correctly identified the Otus, what a lens :)

    I picked the shot on the left. But was disappointed when I learned that there was some post processing done.

    I picked the image on the right... liked the DOF better and it looked cleaner.
    The question posed about whether the lens had an impact more than the camera is a good point.
    Great experiment Mat

    I think it would be the printer. A high end printer will take full advantage of details with a higher dynamic range camera, but with an average printer you may see a slight difference in image detail

    You had a 50mm lens on the D200 and a 55mm lens on the D5. The D200 has a DX sensor, whereas the D5 is an FX camera. As a result, the model's features were slightly distorted in the D5 photo compared to the D200 pic. Might this be the reason for the preference shown for the D200 photo?

    Many thanks that was interesting and fun to watch. I did own the D200 many moons ago and it is a really good camera. Since then I have had the D3s and now I use the D810.
    To me the D810 has more velvety look and feel. Would a customer see the difference ? Probably not as most people are not camera buffs, and from my observations they are caught up in the emotion / ego / how good they look or dont.

    From a users perspective having a better tool and by that I mean. Focus accuracy, white balance, iso range etc, can make the job easier and the hit rate higher.

    Respected Sir,
    I am a big fan of your work. I have not been able to purchase your guides since i was a student and wasn't earning, but i try and apply the tips that you provide in your videos. I do not have an elaborate set of gear but only a sony alpha 37 camera with a kit 18-55 lens and a prime 50 lens. I was hoping that you could provide me an opportunity to work with you, where i would learn this art much better. I have a sample of my work with the link provided below. I have the vision and an eye for beauty, please respond to this plea.
