BTW, jjnik, I see you own a D4 and the D800.

Within the parameters of your usage, is there anything YOU prefer about the IQ of the D4 sensor?

Obviously we've all heard about differences in midtones at high ISO along with extended DR and people chant about DXO charts, but what is your experience?


The difference I see in favor of the D4 is mainly at ISO's above 6400 where the D4 is cleaner and holds color better without much PP. I also don't look at test charts. These days, I find myself using the D800E as much or more than the D4 in good light. The tonality, detail and ability to crop pretty heavily just make it really flexible. I use the D4 more when I need speed. Here's a link to a gallery of shots for a local sailing club where I used both cameras - the D4 with the 70-200 f2.8 VR2 and the D800E with the 300 f2.8 VR2 ( a few with the 2xTCIII as well) so you can see how both cameras fared in the same light.
