On Just Posted: Nikon D3200 preview samples gallery news story (495 comments in total)

I purchased a D3200 and tested it for 2 days before returning it. It looks great, feels great, has a wonderful and easy to use interface. But none of that matters because all of the images produced with various lenses in various lighting conditions, even on a tripod, were all BLURRY and SOFT! Even working from RAW via Lightroom 4.1, Blurry and Soft. I could literally get equal results with a half frame of my Canon 5D Mark II in side-by-side tests. That is 10MP in focus, as compared to 24 in super-soft focus (even with great optics). I don't know what Nikon did wrong here, but they came so close to a perfect camera, it pained me to box it up and send it back.

With the variations in the sizes of objects from camera to camera, this comparison is flawed, misleading and useless. Also, if we could view all at 200% instead of 100% we would be more able to judge relative quality. 200% is always more revealing as one can make-out individual pixels.

On Canon EOS 5D Mark III preview (923 comments in total)

I'm profoundly unimpressed by this camera. I switched to Canon from Nikon when the 5D Mark II came out. Canon had been ahead of Nikon on resolution and value for a while. But now it seems that Nikon is out in front again. I want 36MP! I want to be able to crop an image square and still have a respectable size; or crop to a distant flying bald eagle and still get a usable image. This is basically the same camera I purchased a few years ago. What the hell is Canon thinking? Sad.
