D800(E) - Pixel peeping: Not as sharp as 5DMkIII. Why?
Aug 10, 2013

I was pixel peeping with the "Studio comparison tool" and I observed that the checkered item on the far top-left is not as sharp in D800 as in 5DMkIII.

Initially I thought that maybe it's because of the pixel number difference. However even when I downloaded the raw files and down-sampled the D800 images, the result was still similar.

Without starting a flame-war, anybody could explain to me why that might be? Is it user error? Camera error? Lens error? Some special software 5DMkIII applies? What
