Lens and camera details
Camera used – Fujifilm X-Pro1, the Sony NEX-7 and the Canon EOS 7D within, Image quality is set at JPEG (best quality).
The X-Pro1 was fitted with the Fujinon XF 18mm f2 R, the NEX-7 with the 18-55 f3.5-5.6 OSS kit zoom and the EOS 7D with the EF-S 18-85 f3.5-5.6 IS USM.
Fuji X Pro 1 and Sony NEX 7 noise performance is better than the Canon EOS 7D 18 megapixel sensor, and same 18 Mp sensor is used in 550D and 600D, I hope canon will use a newly developed and better sensor in upcoming canon 650D.
