after a lot of crying from nikon fan, d800e got 84% score. what a review!
sayed fares: i ' m not fanboy of any manufacturer i have the 2 bodys now in my studio for my employees my personal camera is Hasselbladnikon is much more sharper but quality of picture are similar to aps-c sensor canon pictures are very clean and i m talking about image quality at lowest iso ( raw and jpeg )
d800 has no door to compete with 5D mark 3. The sample photos of d800 look like of point and shot camera
Bye bye nikon. I will buy a 5D mark 3
draculavn: watching the two sample photos, it's clear that 5d mark III beats d800 in terms of color tone, white balance and contrast. These issues make a photo.
The Dpreview call destructive noise reduction doesn't make sense because we never see it or face it at daily photography. Only nikon boys consider it a lifebuoy to catch when drowning
No need to go anywhere. We see the sample photos and decide ourselves which is better. In my opinion, 5D mark III is much superior than d800

Lea5: Identical score between D800 and 5DIII at Techradar as well.4.5 to 4.5
At least nikon has not controled it yet

Techradar review is much better than dpreview.
here comes the impressive review by techradarhttp://www.techradar.com/reviews/cameras-and-camcorders/cameras/digital-slrs-hybrids/canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-1074186/review
russbarnes: No surprises here: " it is clear that even at base ISO some visibly destructive noise reduction is applied to the image. This results in very clean images which lack some of the low-contrast detail you would find in fine textures such as fur or foliage in the distance. A comparatively aggressive default sharpening leads to traces of 'sharpening halos' around high-contrast edges. Noise reduction increases as you go up the ISO scale but the destruction of fine detail becomes more obvious once you reach ISO 3200"
Mushy JPEGs with fine detail that's been "destroyed". Hmmmm and this was meant to be Canon's top selling point for this camera, a claim of a "2 stop reduction in noise". Everyone knew that statement was a joke when it was announced. This is all no real surprise though - anyone would come to this conclusion looking at any sample anywhere out of the camera.
why you so stress on the dpreview called: "destructive noise reduction". Can you see it or you just heard from dpreview? I'm sure all people here want to see, except nikon boys want to hear.
Taikonaut: Dpreview gave D800 a higher score for video than the 5DIII. It is the only review that put the D800 ahead on video despite moire and aliasing problems with the Nikon. Maybe dpreview only rates video based on out of camera rather than what you can do with grading the video.
To see is to believe. Dpreview today has followed DXO to become nikon supporter
Taikonaut: Dpreview gave the Jpeg a low score and probably the only major weak point. Most people consider Jpeg on the 5DIII a strong point better than any of its rivals. No other reviews thinks 5DIII Jpegs a weak point. Now that is a surprise!
We clearly see that 5D mark III has better white balance, color tone and contrast. While dpreview just focus on the issue of visible noise reduction to give low point for canon over jpeg quality.
From compared photos shown here, it's easy to see 5D Mark III clearly beats d800 in the fields of white balance, color tone and contrast. That's what I need and I will purchase a new 5D Mark III soon
dpreview just focus the issue of visible noise reduction which we never see. Some issue that we face just a few times in photography.
This review from techradar is much more impressive and fairhttp://www.techradar.com/reviews/cameras-and-camcorders/cameras/digital-slrs-hybrids/canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-1074186/review
For long, Dpreview has become nikon backyard. All review of nikon camera come very soon and get so high score (the same with dxomark). Reivew of canon camera comes much later and get lower score.
draculavn: high resolution brings big but low quality photos. That's D800 will do
you nikon guys here should go to canon box to see nikon fans make provoke and rubbish comments. How do you feel about that?
So great camera. I will upgrade to 5D mark III
high resolution brings big but low quality photos. That's D800 will do
Rubenski: Can't believe this, I've just learned that 5DMark III sensor is way behind, even worse in DR than the older Nikon sensors! And Sony is kicking Canon's ass too! And all thanks to posts about all kinds of techie stuff (read: I've got nothing else to do than pixel peeping and concluding from that I indeed prefer the camera I already preferred in the first place). I'll tell you one thing: the pro's warn you: don't read the posts on THE BIG WEBSITES, there're filled with the usual BS!! (coming from a fan of photography, not a fan of a brand, couldn't care less).
where did you get such rubbish? from nikon fan like you?
russbarnes: I have no idea where half of the comments below come from, it's absolutely laughable. The D800 image in my view is BETTER than the Pentax, but someONE shot it at f/18 so it's bound to be. As for the 5DMKII, it's nowhere near, plain and simple, it's not in the same class - the details are a mush where you want resolution and I don't expect any better from the 5DMKIII based on what has been shown across the internet so far.
nothing to prove your comment true. But one thing all people can be sure that 5D mark II launched 4 years ago. any comparison with d800 is ridiculous. Open your eyes to see photo samples of 5D mark III. d800 has no chance to match this quality
