BTW, the real test should be at equivalent FL and equivalent f-stops with common lenses.

When comparing resolution across formats you have to keep the subject distance constant. DxO apparently doesn't do that. Might be a source of some of their inconsistencies

true !

I find it interesting that: 14-24 on d800 only scores 17 MPix

they haven't tested the 17 T/S on 5d3 yet.  My guess is that it scores 19 like the siggy 35

DxO is such a load of garbage.

agree, and dxo MPix is not a test of resolution.

sharpness ain't everything

look closely at the 5dc lips below - jaggies and artifacts - 5dc is sharper yes, but clearly the 60d has more resolution and avoids the jaggies

I much prefer the 60d image in the comparison below - artifacts and jaggies ain't resolution as the lips show

Put the tse17on the 5D3 and the 14-24 on the D800 and the D800 will outresolve the 5D3.  People need to stop reading the DxO BS.

agree, but gianp2k will claim crop penalty over and over when there is not a crop penalty, one just needs to put a different lens on the crop camera

the dxo stuff is indeed more dxo nonsense

dxo rated my T4i overall lower than my 40d - what absolute nonsense

now with their new MPix tool - their sharpness claims may only be relevant within the same camera - not across cameras for measuring resolution and certainly not across formats

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)
