The Nikon image of trees covered in snow does not look over-sharpened to me on my iMac 27" monitor. Are you describing the high contrast snow cover on the tree branches in the foreground?

Those particular shots that I chose were shot in different atmospheric conditions, I'll take it. However there are many Nikon-Canon samples that were shot under the same ambient conditions - outside.

Take a look at these:

Yes, it's d800E, but those look like several light years ahead of what 5dmk3 seem to deliver. And the fact that it came from 36mpx sensor is so breathtaking...

So, until I see REAL samples and real reviews, I think of this:

We have a 36mpx camera that squeezes every drop of pixel detail out of the sensor and lens for 500$ less! :-/

Canon... CANON??! Hello?

If this is any example:

maybe Nikon should have stuck with the AA filter. The tree branches have a very over-sharpened look to them, and the snow on the mountains is very blown out. Frankly, in different ways, it's not a whole lot better than the dreadful Canon shot of the Slovenian countryside.
