Lily and Camera comparison

Oct 24, 2017
I'm in the thought mode as to whether or not I want to keep my D5600. I love the Z6 so much and am wondering if I would like a Z50 as a smaller/lighter carry around to supplement it. The fact that it doesn't have in body image stabilization is a real concern to me. I was playing around today just doing some comparing as I am thinking. (I tend to overthink everything!) Here are a couple of comparison shots using the D5600 and the Z6, both with the 105 f2.8 macro lens. They were not set up to do an apples to apples comparison. But I did try to frame them similarly, except that I had to step back a little with the D5600 to get a wider aperture to try to create a similar amount of DOF. I tried to do similar post processing. Does one stand out to you as significantly better than the other? View attachment 1666149 View attachment 1666148
The second one shows more detail.

To my eye the second one is a bit sharper and more contrasty. I see that it's your D5600. Whether it's significantly better is up to you:).

That is also my impresssion of both photeaux... the one from the Z seems softer focus, but not disturbingly so, but the 5600 gives more detail. Color seems so close to the same that there is no contest. It depends what you prefer, or maybe give it another quick test, mounting both cameras on a tripod. Decisions, decisions, eh?
