Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1.4 APO-Sonnar at 187 Megapixels: Church Mosaic Straight-On (Panasonic S1R Multi-Shot High-Res Mode)

Get Zeiss Otus at B&H Photo.

Here, the Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1.4 APO-Sonnar is put to the ultimate test using the 187 megapixel Multi-Shot High-Res mode on the Panasonic S1R. This scene is difficult enough at sensor resolution, so this is a severe test of a lens performance headroom.

I’ve added a second example to the first one. In diglloyd Zeiss DSLR Lenses:

Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1.4 APO-Sonnar Examples: Multi-Shot High-Res Mode (Panasonic S1R)

Includes images at up to 47, 93 125, 187 megapixels.

As with the previous example, the detail level is astonishing, even at full resolution. Subtleties smeared away for the past decade shooting this target at lower resolution pop out: individual tiles have their own distinct color, nor is there any detectable noise. The grout itself is cleanly delineated. Defects within each tiny tile can be seen. There is no reason that the 187 megapixel version could not be used directly for a print.

If high resolution is a priority (along with superior color purity, ultra low noise, freedom from digital artifacts), it is hard to justify buying a conventional Sony mirrorless or Nikon mirrorless or Canon mirrorless camera as there is just no comparison. This is way WAY better than all but the most exotic medium format cameras. Of course, lots of photography has other priorities, handholding being the most obvious. But for sheer awesome imaging power with a suitable subject, no other 35mm camera can touch the Panasonic S1R with a high-grade lens.
