A test with the D4, D800 5D2 and 5D3. I know this is for real because the D4 used for the test is mine and I was present when this was shot.

Thanks for sharing this!

I think the D4 Sharpness should have been turned down to 3, but in general, you've sold me on the D4 for cinematography moving forward - it seems to be the clear high ISO winner, and the D800 is showing its tendancy for aliasing all over the brick wall.

It would seem to me that optimal in camera sharpness level is 0

Based upon what?

I've shot many a test video on the D4 using the Neutral picture control, which defaults the in-camera sharpness to +2. Everyone complains that image is too soft, so why would you want to make the D4 image even softer by default? That makes no sense at all.
