Turn the resolution chart 45 degrees to shoot and you get a better idea. Better still, for a "fair" comparison, turn it 22.5 degrees and see the difference. In real world, things don't arrange themselves for that specific orientation.True, but remember that the Fuji sensor is not a conventional one -- it is tilted 45 deg relative to usual sensors. I checked back, and this is what an earlier British Journal of Photography review noted about the Fuji S5 resolution:
"Doing the tests revealed maximum resolutions of approximately 56 lp/mm, 36-40 lp/mm and 28 lp/mm. These figures are consistent with the predicted ranges (at the Nyquist end of the scale) and support the notion that the S5's highest resolution corresponds with a genuine 12 million pixels rather than interpolation of a smaller number of pixels."
The lines per mm figures refer to the 12MP, 6Mp and 3 or 4 MP settings in the S5.
This is the first time KRW has tested a Fuji DSLR and I suspect he did not do a careful test and simply brushed off the 12MP setting as a "fake" increase in resolution.
Yeah, it's a wonderful camera!! Must say we have to take KRW's comments with a large dose of salt. I remember he once slammed the Canon 5D (compared to the D200) simply because the Canon does not have auto ISO mode. Just for that. Now you hear him raving about the amazing resolution and low noise of the 5D -- just like everyone else.although i have read KRW review on S5PRO, yet i still join S5Pro Family..Nice CAM!
