Razor Sharp Zeiss Milvus 135mm f/2 Aperture Series on Nikon D850 Monochrome: Pine Creek Mining Buildings from Pine Creek Trail (up to 183 megapixels)

The Nikon D850 monochrome is a Nikon D850 with its color filter array (CFA) removed by maxmax.com. NEF files converted to monochrome DNG via LibRaw Monochrome2DNG and “Method B”, then processed using Adobe Camera Raw. Doing so avoids any demosaicing and thus retains full spatial resolution.

This aperture series from f/2 through f/8 evaluates the performance of the Zeiss Milvus 135mm f/2 at far distance on the 45 megapixel Nikon D850 monochrome, with stunning results—you won’t believe your eyes—sharpness feels like a 100MP color camera without the indecisive resolution of a Bayer matrix color camera which mangles textures and very fine details.

Zeiss Milvus 135mm f/2 Aperture Series on Nikon D850 Monochrome: Pine Creek Mining Buildings from Pine Creek Trail

Images up to full camera resolution, plus all frames at 183 megapixels upscaled using Gigapixel AI.

I am not shooting a secret 183 megapixel camera. Just a Nikon D850 monochrome. Images like these surpass in detail and tonality and low noise anything I’ve ever shot on any camera of any resolution. Well I have not shot (yet) the PhaseOne IQ180 or its monochrome sibling, so I’ll exclude those for now.

The monochrome sensor and its freedom from debayering reveal the native performance of the lens without any intervening software behaviors. And I seem to have mastered the exposure and raw conversion side of things. The quality is breathtaking. I am now actively pondering how to acquire a D850m of my own.
