So I've now got a 'full frame' camera to play with and I got to wondering: is that a good thing?
I'm not sure if this is the right subject, or even the right way to make a determination, but it was kinda fun anyway.
Both of these shots used the same lens and the same manual exposure settings.
One shot with a 5D - 36mm x 24mm sensor and the other with a 40D - 22.2mm x 14.8mm. The resulting images were sized to the same 518 x 777 pixel dimensions in Photoshop Elements.
Both using a 50mm at f1.4, 1/1000th, iso 100 in the early evening shade.
I'm thinking the jury is still out on this one...
