....DXOmark has a method for testing that most people accept as valid. It is worth noting that every third party lens rates higher on a D800E than on any Canon. Also, the old Nikon 24-70 rates considerably higher on a D800E than does the brand spanking new Canon 24-70 on a 5DIII. And every expert believes that the Canon 24-70 is superior to the Nikon 24-70. So basically, Canon's cameras are degrading their lenses.

As a D800e and 24-70 owner I wish this were true. It is not. Rather, some of Nikon's lenses are degrading Sony's great sensors. An upgrade to the 24-70 is well due.

Sharpness and CA is a clear win to the Canon combo.

Only if you trust DxO.

I trust Lensrentals more.

D800 should be equal to D800e at F8.
