If I were you, I would also try renting a 1DX and/or 5DIII along with the D800, just to try understanding the real life differences in sharpness that you can obtain among "state of the art" cameras of both brands.


HA!! Look at that someone else who can actually say both brands have state of the art cameras. A lot of the griping that goes on here is personal opinion of real life differences and personal opinion should be the "Final Answer!", use both and see what one feels right to you, I have and personally Canon colors are more appealing to me, but you to be able to say both brands are EXCELLENT

Thanks appreciated. Of course, this is what I'm hoping for in moving to the higher rez. Probably the best advise out there today on this thread is "rent a D800 and try it" to make sure the presumed diff's in the 24x36's actually play out in practice.
