hydrospanner: When you can't (or don't want to) answer a valid, direct question...go ahead and insult the person that asked it. Wonderful.
To stay in german scope; if you have the money you can afford a Porsche, if not then something on cheaper level;so with the Leica S, ..cheersKarl
exact the right moment!great!!
q8wizard: WHAT IF CANON 5DIII GET 84% SCORE, ARE WE GOING TO CALL IT CANON DPREVIEW, WAIT GUYS TELL WE GET THE FULL REVIEW OF THE MARK III, I BEEN CHECKING DPREVIEW ON DAILY BASES FOR YEARS, I LOVE THIS SITE AND I COULDN’T FIND ANYWHERE BETTER TO HAVE SIMPLE CLEAR REVIEW, I BELIEVE A GOOD CAMERA IS THE ONE CAN ASSIST YOU IN A DIFFICULT SITUATIONS BUT THE D800 WHICH I HAVE BEEN USING FOR A MONTH NOW IS A NORMAL CAMERA, SO HERE WHERE I DISAGREE WITH DPR. THE CAMERA WORK GREAT UNDER A NORMAL CONDITIONS, I BELIEVE 83% IS FAIR,
I think the 82% is an internal error in their internal Percentage lookup table - 92% was meant which is far enough away from an Olympus D with 80%cheers/Charles
Gully Foyle: Having used a D800 for a week now, I'll post some cons that Nikon could have (and should have, IMHO) done better. Superb otherwise.- Record button not customizable. Record button redundant if g4 custom setting is set to Record Movies. Could at least double Mode button and reduce clutter- D7000/D3100 LV lever/record button combo much better. Record button placed on the back instead of top more logical since active only in LV- No ISO option set on any Fn buttons, except use first item from My Menu- No Color Space option set on any Fn buttons, except use first item from My Menu- Show ISO/Easy ISO feature (d7) hidden and irrelevant- Minor dial customization despite (yet another) increase of features- No small RAW options (MAJOR fault)- OVF Virtual Horizon useless in low light- Quiet mode not at all quiet- Not refined LV mode- LCD light sensor easy to cover, dropping brightness- AF switch/button combo a workaround in an obsolete design. SONY big knob implementation much better
May be some personal improvements but still an aamzing cam;/Charles
why only 82%??I Feel 85%/K
Christo256: Pretty disappointed with these samples. There are lots of lens reviews on the web so to make this review purely about the quality of the sensor the pictures need to be shot with the best lenses shot at their sweet spot and on a tripod otherwise one is confused as to what is making some of the low iso shots a little soft. I get sharper images from my 5d 2 than what I can see here but don't know if this is human error or an AA filter that is too strong?
Same with D800 samples - my impression is that other reviews show much better performance;/K
I never saw sharpening as filter in any cam-app - why?
Well seen and well done!

Fully agree, the imaging-resource shots to me are more informative;/K
Ilkka Nissilä: Nikon's rating of the D800 up to ISO 6400 and D4 up to 12800 seems justified; the D4 gives much lower color noise at ISO 12800 than the D800.
Nothing new under the stars.
Indeed and the D4'S target was ISO Performance and the D800's resolution. You will not shoot for highest resolution with D4 and not for highest ISO Performance with D800;cheers/K
William Belvin: Good to see these , but they're not great for comparing resolutions. They were shot at f/11, and are badly affected by diffraction. Nikon recommends shooting at f/8 or lower for best results. I'd suggest f/5.6 would be a better test. Incidentally the 645D is shot at f/18 and is also affected by diffraction, even with its large sensor.
Not only the Aperture but also the studio scene, much better visible on imaging-resource use comparometer ...
Exactly that lens I am waiting for years on nikon to release it;
wonderful light and motion and composition, and perfect focusa Nikon D700 user :)
wildkat2: My take:
"I think the K-01 is a watershed camera for Pentax. The K-01 address the two biggest arguements against the current crop of mirrorless systems - small sensors and limited lenses. It is the first mirrorless camera with a "traditional" lens mount and a full range of lenses. Not a couple of lenses and a bunch of adapters. The APS-C sensor is 30% bigger than 4/3 sensor and there are more current production K Mount lenses than all other mirrorless systems combined (including the Q). And while P-TTL flashes are not up to Nikon or Canon standards, they are better than any other mirrorless has. Bottom line - the K-01 is the first mirrorless than dosent make you compromise the most important part of photography - the image."
fully agree, wished Nikon would have done it at the same way - some kind of Nikon D8000 APS-C mirror-less! instead of these expensive V1/J1 which are already on limit with their sensor size/Karl
and like the light composition - very fine and decent/Karl
