Beautiful Bokeh, Super Sharp – Sony RX1 & Sigma DP3 Merrill

A few days ago I snapped away at the owl using the Sony RX1 and the Sigma DP3. The result, for me, is a great example of the strengths of both cameras.
Having to get up close with the RX1 combined with f2.0 equals really shallow DoF, and I love the the creamy background.

The Sigma on the other hand, taken a few steps back and at f2.8 … well could you ask for more resolution? … but the out of focus areas are for me too harsh.

So there you have it, two different cameras, two different sensors, two different images = one slightly bigger camera bag …
… and if you’re not interested in the cameras, at least there’s a nice picture of an owl to look at 🙂
