Canon have a habit of choosing default settings to appeal to the consumer. In their camcorders, it's all saturation and sharpness to the maxxx. On their high ISO shots, NR is cranked right up to smooth out the luminosity speckling at the expense of obscuring any fine detail.
rhlpetrus: DPR: ISO 100 settings for D800: 1/15s, f/11. For D4: 1/8s, f/11. That's one full EV difference, how come?
How about the likelihood that it's just a typo?
johnnymac43: I am having focusing issues as well, this camera doesn't focus as good as my Canon S90. For the most part it is great but not as good as the Canon. Anyone else with a focusing problems?
Much ado about nothing. This kind of rubbish accompanies every release of every new camera. I've seen photos showing this blooming, and it's only visible when pixel peeping. You'll never see it in a printed photo. This is yet another case of complete over-reaction. Those people who are about to return their cameras be honest - did you actually notice the problem before you read about it in the Internet? I guarantee you did not.
