Peter K Burian: OK, if the D810 images for comparison were made with the better f/1.4 lens, what lens was used for the D800 images?
If the latter were made with the cheap f/1.8 lens, the image comparison would no longer be valid.
The D800/E Df and D750 are showing they were shot with the 85 1.8G- the lens DPR has used on Nikon full-frame bodies for awhile now. At F5.6 the 1.8G and 1.4gG are probably pretty equal but if the lens is changed for one body it should be changed for all comparable Nikons. Unless DPR is hoping you'll upgrade to the D810 !
Very depressing. Nikon eliminates even the peephole finder with the latest P7700 and Canon follows suit with the EOS-M and these two jokers.
Now if we could get you to compare a dozen or so Canon S100's...
