D800 v D2X/D3X skin tone and "tonality"
May 9, 2012

Could anyone who owns both a D800 and a D2X comment on the base iso performance of the D800 compared to the D2X/D3X in terms of skin color rendition and, for want of a better word, "tonality".

Although I love my D3 and D700 I really miss the D2X smooth tones and skin color finding the D3/700 just a little red and "unsmooth" - difficult to explain but a D2X owner will understand, I'm sure.

I am attracted by Thom Hogan's description of the D3X colors as similar to the D2X, I just wondered if tonality was connected to pixel size/density and, if so, how the D800 compares to the D3X/D2X.

Hope the above makes some sort of sense - I haven't even had a drink yet!
