Perhaps what Mr. Coudet meant was that by providing a downsized Nikon jpeg, he would not be able to manipulate the file as he sees fit and he didn't have time to download the RAW.

What I meant was that by downsizing you threw away information. You asked to compare D800 and 5D Mark III, but by downsizing you threw away the advantage of D800 and influenced the results of such a comparison. Not a useful comparison.

This is one of the hallmarks of misunderstanding digital imaging. Captured detail i.e. the finer detail that has been captured as a rersult of more pixels horizontally and more pixels vertically on a given surface doesn't disapear when you throw away information (at least not the amount represented by the downsizing here) because you are not throwing away all of the additional detail captured.

Of course, Mr. Coudet chose to passive/aggresively denigrate

No.

What I did was point out the problem, but chose not to elaborate on it because I (incorrectly) assumed that it should be obvious why you shouldn't downsize. That was my mistake. Your mistake was taking offense to my comment, where none was intended.

Hopefully, you did see that I provided the full-size image below and I look forward to your thoughts on the actual comparison.
