Re: Canon XF305 japanese test: resolution, CA, color, etc.

Ivan, these are invaluable.

I have until Nov 30 to choose between re-purchasing an NX70 (price drop), or getting the XF100. The XF100 will strain my budget to the max, not just the price but the CF cards.

My NX70 had horrible CA at full zoom and problems with blur at the edges in wide-angle - see the frame grabs below:

Index of /temp1

I know that the XF300 has a better lens than the XF100. I wonder how the XF100 lens does in edge-edge sharpness, and CA at full zoom?

By any chance do you have an XF100, or know of any test shots similar to the ones you posted?

Thanks!

Steve
