In these experiments I explore the coverage of different lens-body combinations as well as the zooming effect of the Tachihara.
GFX vs. 4×5
Set to about 50mm, the GFX approximates the area covered by the 4×5 with a 150mm lens.
Leica M10-R vs. 4×5
Using 35mm lens1 on the Leica M-10 approximates the area covered by the 4×5 with a 150mm lens.
Using the 4×5 as a Zoom on the GFX
As can be seen in the image below, there is a significant zoom affect using the Tachihara 150mm lens as the lens for the GFX. It appears to be the equivalent of a 300mm lens on the GFX (or a 78mm lens on a full frame camera).
The first image shows the level of detail contained in a digital 4×5. The images following extract a 100% crop of a 4×5, medium format and full frame image. This is another way of seeing the level of detail.
- Note: In theory a 40mm lens should do the trick, however, in my experiments the crop was close, but incomplete, so I chose to work with a 35mm lens instead. ↩︎
