    XF1 v. Sony A7.

    XF1 photo was with the pro-low-light mode which makes one single image composite from 3-4 frames to reduce noise at high ISO. It works very well in my opinion.

    First, XF1 at 100mm:

    Now, Sony A7 at 85mm:

    XF1 did pretty well IMO. The photos were downsized to 1024 pixels across, and slightly processed in LR5.3. XF1 seems to have less contrast and DR, but has the very cool starbursts! Love the XF1!

    Interesting comparison, though a bit like comparing a satsuma and an orange. But the XF1 has done a good job against heavyweight competition from Sony.
    An interesting comparison, also it must be nice to be in Paris.

    Yes, the XF1 is a great little camera.
    While you are in Paris, go up the Montparnasse tower -- that way you'll get a shot of Paris with the Eiffel Tower.
    See you in Houston in a couple of weeks from now !
