Lens Sharpness: Pixel Pitch vs Format


With the Canon 90Ds release I have received what feels like 100s of emails, comments, posts and questions about how lenses that were sharp enough on the Canon 70D or 80D were sharper than what they were on the 90D, and that many users wanted to go back to the those older cameras. There was also a lot of confusion about wether the format of the lens had any role, so I wanted to answer these questions specifically exploring the role of pixel pitch vs format and how they relate to image sharpness.

Also: Youtube compresses the images we use in the video, so what you see will be different than what I saw on my computer, but there are a few really important take aways in this video:

1. It has much more to do with lens sharpness than format. When we use a crop camera compared to a full frame camera with nearly identical pixel pitch, same prime lens, they perform similarly.

2.Older & Zooms are not as sharp as Newer & Primes.

3. If your lens is sharp enough, high resolution sensors will produce more detail than lower resolving lenses.

4. If your lens is not sharp enough, using a lower resolution sensor (larger pixel pitch) will product sharper images due to diffraction limits.

Enjoy!
