Of course you're not seeing it in your own stuff, you're using a 5D ;-)
Seeing as this is an Olympus-themed mailing list, go push the shadows
of an E-510 or an E-3 to anywhere near the same amount, and you'll
see what I mean...
Although I must say, the cleanest shadows I have ever seen, bar none,
is the N*kon D3 / D700. In relative terms, not even any medium format
digital back that I have seen files from had shadows that clean.
Certainly, the M*miya ZD back is a piece of junk in that regard.
(sorry for the harshness, but really... It's nice and all (in absolute
but film really still is better in terms of noise etc. in relative
terms - IMHO)
P.S. Wh* the h*ll st*rted this habit of bl*nking out certain v*wels
when mentioning oth*r types of c*ameras? I am j*st pl*ying along.
