Though i have been into photography for 30 + yrs and only recently switched to digital, I have a question about what I am seeing.
To clarify, does the eye see better thru the eyepiece than the sensor can reproduce?
There seems to be a difference that is noticeble to me.
Donīt think this is a digital thing; I had exactly the same feeling when I used Leicaflex SLīs (and a R6), but not with the more coarse groundglass on older manual Nikons. Recently I bought a Nikon D200, which is qiute decent for manual focussing, but it has a very fine-grained and bright screen, just like the Leicas. And, yes, that feeling is there again: I think I see more detail in the finder.
Iīve no theories why it is so, or even whether it is a real thing or just my imagination. But obviously, I am not alone....
