Re: D3x has better detail and more contrast n/t
In reply to retlaw 7, Feb 20, 2009

the paper clips are not a real value to compare, The A900, 5D2, 1DS3 and D3X focus very different. The automatic scene system of the nikon D3X will allways focus in the frontal part of a shot while the A900 centers.
Look at that page and you see this clearly.

The setups with multiple objects are a trap you should not walk in. You will see the bottle logo sharp on one camera and blurred on another and think it that the sharper is better. On the end all depends where the camera focuses and often the clips are sharper on one and the lady on the bottle sharper on the other.

This way of comparing is just good for details. If, on the setup one was focusing every part of it separately on a different picture for each object and comparing the details, one could go for it. The number scale and the b&w test on a flat sheet are here a better way to compare this.
