A comparison using Capture One - yields different results
In reply to Rick Knepper, Jul 21, 2013

Thanks for taking the time to do this comparison.

Based on my own test, it seems the outcome has much to do with the choice of raw converter and the resizing algorithm. Anyone can download a copy of Capture One 7 and repeat this if they want. The D800E images look sharper and more contrasty to me and there is visibly more detail.



Whether you downsize the whole image or a crop, you are still throwing away detail are you not?

The raw files you originally provided obviously show more detail in the D800E file.
