Now I can't wait to see how the d800e performs!!
Paco 316: This camera has better IQ than the Original 5D. ISO 25600 cleans up pretty well with the black slider in Lightroom 4. Good for small print and web viewing.
I don't expect good high ISO, I already KNOW this camera delivers at high ISO, thank you very much.
Yes, EM-5 has better ISO 25600 than 5D. How about ISO100-200? I think 5D beats the cr@p out of EM-5...
Paddy MBA: The D700 most certainly does not offer the same low light capabilities as the D4. What I am looking for is not the D700 or the present D800 but, rather, the D4 in a smaller body. Now, having said that, I carefully looked at the D4's low light performance (on another website) at 12,800 ISO and there is an obviously large amount of noise that is not present at 6,400 ISO. I noticed the same thing with the new Canon 5D Mk 3. It seems that the 6,400 ISO barrier remains. I wonder about the new Fujifilm X-Pro1 and the new Olympus EM-5. Both claim new levels of low light performance. I certainly like the small size of the Olympus; which would solve a lot of problems for me; i.e. weight and size.
Have you used D700/D3? LOL... I don't think so. So far no APS DSLR or mirrorless could compete with D700 in term of high iso noise - let alone an EM-5!! Small sensor tends to lose DR as well when the ISO gets higher. The only thing that could beat D700/D3 is D3s.
D3s is clearly better - even if you resize the D4 file to 12MP... It's easy to see at ISO 6400.
Mushy photography redefined. LOL... Need to take some insanity level test, Sony....
kewlguy: I'm not taking Sony's cr@p anymore. I've owned NEX-5 for more than a year and the only lens usable is the zoom kit. The 16 is pure trash, and the 18-200 is not making any sense with its size. The 'new' ones? big and slow 35 macro, so so 50/1.8 (which is short tele that is not really usable for me) and the big pricey 24 zeiss that performs like a cheaper lens. Sounds harsh? Sony should learn how to make lenses from Samsung and Panasonic! their sensors might not be as good as sony's but as a system they work very well...
Tried one already, well it not bad, but I got the NEX5 because it's small. Putting a 24 Zeiss rather moots the point. I wished I could mount Samsung 30/2 on my NEX5 :) Something like Panny 20/1.7 won't hurt either... Sony just has to make everything uncompact.

Gorgeous!!! I wished Olympus uses APS-C sensor... this is the camera Nikon and Canon should have made
Can't wait to see how my 14-24 performs on D800E! Would love to see the real detail after all the years using AA filter.
Kudos Tamron! I hope it is optically sound!
Definitely the thickest mirrorless... now it looks small because of the super thin pancake lens. Will the newer lenses be this compact? I highly doubt it.
LOL - these are the first photos from a super phenomenal camera???? Jeez... the 'landscape' photos...must...not...click..on...them... Seriously, my old D80 can do much better than those... or is it the photographer? Fuji should be serious when introducing initial results like this!
Interesting camera! Although I'd like to see higher res LCD for the price...
10MP is mostly enough for compacts. It would be better if Sony stays at lower MP but improves the DR, noise, etc.. I'm sure most compact users will only upload the photos to social media sites. So 18MP? Users are forced to occupy the harddrives with low quality but large files. What a freak...
yeah - great optical quality - as long as Sigma could deliver well-centered optics...
LOL... 50mm f/6.3 - on a noisy sensor... oh wait, it'a weatherseled!
It's simply a great sensor. Noise character is also very good leading to usable ISO3200. yes it has slightly more noise than 7D - but look at the crops - the new samsung has better micro-contrast. I'm confident that when carefully processed, ISO3200 images will be highly usable. Great lenses from Samsung too! I've been a NEX user since early 2011 but my NEX-5 sits in the dry cabinet all the time because of ugly lenses (maybe I got a soft 18-55, but that 16 makes me sick!). Yeah I used it a couple of times when I mount my M lenses on it. I hope NX20 will be even better due to VF, faster AF, etc..
Travel photography redefined. Makes me want to go there (empty skies). For a sec I thought it's one of those border/frame clipart from Print Shop Pro - and I'm not kidding!
As a sponsor Tamron should be very happy to give away the lens to this winner...
Simon97: Pretty decent I'd say. The zoom lens does show falloff near the edges, but nothing serious. High ISO performance is pretty good. Looking at the last pic of the neon lit scene at ISO3200, I was expecting mush, but There is a pretty clean image with sharp details. I'd guess this camera has a Sony built sensor.
The shot with the candy signs shows pretty good detail. I'd like to see this camera with a good prime.
I'd say Nikon made a neat little system that compares with 4/3rds quite well. I applaud them for going 10mp to stay out of the pixel race. Prices are a concern, but they will hopefully drop.
"..Looking at the last pic of the neon lit scene at ISO3200, I was expecting mush, but There is a pretty clean image with sharp details..."
Yeah with a final touch of blotchy finish. Nice. That's a pretty decent rip-off.
