Part 5 – Indoor Low Light

This is continuation of Part 4 – Inside Museums

This is typical sporting events taken with low indoor light.. usually for shooting people where the shutter speed need to be kept above 1/30th of second.

Here is the comparison information when viewed at 100% or 65% for nikon with the equivalent size.

To my surprise.. m4/3 combination performed better. Only reason I think is the Panasonic 35-100 f/2.8 @ f/3.2 lens is better than 24-120 f/4 at f/4.

Of course with Nikon 36MP, I can make larger print.. but normal size print m4/3 combination performed better.

One reason I thought 24-120 with D810 is better choice is to overcome the deficiency of 200mm zoom with the 36MP sensor. That’s not the case either..

Cropped to equivalent size..

At 100mm (200mm equivalent) m4/3 lens is better.


To my surprise 35-100mm f/2.8 lens easily outperformed 24-120 f/4 lens even with a smaller sensor.

My Preference : m4/3 combo, mainly due to the lens.
