Mostly because it can do this at 6400 ISO with an 85mm Zeiss 1.4 lens, wide open. That's why.
Rosie and the Ramblers were in the studio today, cutting a new album. Rosie asked me to drop by and take some images for their website and promo. She likes "real life." So I came equipped with some fast glass and a Canon 5D2 as well as a Nikon V1. I looked at the difference between the Nikon at 3200 and the Canon at 6400 and I put the Nikon away and shot "digital old school."
I'll keep the old stuff around for a while longer. Is it just me or does that Zeiss 85 look good to you too?
I'm in San Antonio for the next two days shooting a hospital. I'll be back in Austin Friday night getting ready to do my 10:15 am demo at the Austin Photo Expo Saturday morning. I'll be the guy trying to juggle two cups of coffee.....
