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

I'm not surprised.  14-24 is not really that fantastic as someone claimed.  It's excellent at 14mm side in center but not that sharp in edges/corners.  It's not that good at 24mm side (if I remember correctly that I can double check).

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

'joger' has several threads that show 17 TS-E on 5D2 (no mention 5D3) is sharper than 14-24 on D800 in edges/corners.

The 17tse is simply better in the corners compared to 14-24. It's an architectural specialty lens, no big news here. Doesnt take a single thing away from the 14-24 which is still by far the best wide zoom around. Hope Canon can at least match it

He acknowledges 14-24 on D800 in center does outresolve 17 TS-E on 5D2 clearly.  Then he stitched two photos from 17 TS-E on 5D2 then the stitched photos will outresolve D800 with 14-24 in entire frame especially in edges/corners.

This was kind of silly as anytime you stitch you increase resolution. I can easily (and already have) stitched w the 5Dc with better results than a D800

Anyway 14-24 is not in the same league of 24-70L II or 70-200L II, just my opinion

Both those lens probably dont do 14mm too well eitherĀ
