I can't remember who told me that there's no reason to switch from a 40D to a 5D, I've had the debate with many people on DA. I think it's total bullshit.
Processing this shot really showed me the 5D's superiority.
The red sky is so smooth, not a speck of noise, That little lighthouse is so damn pin sharp at F20, and so is the rocks at the bottom border. There's not a single pixel of abberation around the lighthouse. Pushing the exposure of the RAW file up or down by a stop does nothing to the qaulity. I can't wait to see what the mk2 will be like.
The place is slangkoppunt( snakeheadpoint ). This is on the cape peninsula, the mountains you usually see on the horizon of my seascapes.
