Images, 5D Mk II versus D3
Oct 5, 2008

I wanted to compare the images taken by two cameras, D700 and 5D Mk II. Since no sample images taken by D700 are listed in dpreview yet I compared the images taken by D3 (instead of D700) and 5D Mk II and I got some impressions. I say impressions; it can not be an objective comparison. Nonetheless I could draw some conclusions.

1) In case of 5D Mk II, I think up to ISO 3200 is usable. D3, up to ISO 6400 usable.

2) The images taken by 5D Mk II look plastic (digital?) whereas D3 images are rich in color look more natural.

I find D3 images are more pleasing to my eyes. Of course this may be my personal preference/bias. But I think my eyes are not particularly superior or discriminating aesthetically. I guess (or presume) I see things the way most people see.

Even though these are conclusions based on subjective impressions I think my conclusions are relevant, especially in real life. Well, what is your opinion?
