Full Frame vs Micro 4:3 – Where It Matters Most
This really well-done video that showcases why MFT cameras can compete with full-frame cameras came out in 2018. I saw it back then but ran across it again recently and thought it would be interesting to others. I was also inspired to revisit this video now that I’ve been shooting the new Olympus 150-400mm zoom and getting such incredible results. As many of you know I’ve been a big fan of MFT for many years. That enthusiasm was tempered somewhat when it came to the telephoto lenses.
It wasn’t until Olympus gave us the 40-150mm F/2.8, 300mm F/4, and now the new 150-400mm zoom that I felt enthusiastic about the options for super-telephoto reach. With these three lenses, all of my concerns regarding image quality are now gone. I did have some issues with the Leica 100-400mm and I sometimes was left wondering if the smaller cameras could compete when it came to large prints. The 150-400mm has made all those concerns completely go away.
So with that, I wanted to share this video with my viewers so you too can see how MFT does against a very capable full-frame camera, the Canon EOS 5D. I think you’ll all see that the need to spend the extra money and carry the extra weight is firmly in the rearview mirror. Let me know what you think about this video and any thoughts you have on the subject in the comments below.
