You have no clue what you are talking about. You didn't read the OP. You are assigning intent to my post that just isn't there.

You and the previous poster have no idea what FF or FX is all about if you think it is about a gazillion pixels. Jeez.

The previous post says it all for me. Anyone who knows that they will be converting virtually all their images to a small size does not need to worry about which FX brand of camera will result in best small jpg. There are plenty of less costly cameras that will do the job to a very high standard. And, the difference between best and second best appears so small as to be inconsequential. The last person to see the final image in it's perfectly processed state, of whatever size, will be the one processing it on his computer. If the monitor is precisely calibrated for color, brightness, and contrast he will be the only one to see it in its "pure" form. Everyone else will see the version on whatever monitor or TV the may view it.

It is interesting, to me anyway, that all this testing and comparing is being devoted to which big hi res camera makes the best small pictures. For a couple of decades in the rapidly changing digital camera world all the talk has been about which camera makes the best large images. And, why would I give up the best quality large prints of the D800 in favor of a lower resolution camera just so I can get better small images from it?
