Anada: Well well, that is true most of the time and conserning ordinaryphones, like iPhone etc. But in some cases the Nokia 808 is second to only Nikon D800!
Btw Nokia 808 in studio vs Nikon D800E here
According to Zeiss itself the 808 lens is a little better than the Lanthar 50mm F:2.
Take a look of the DPreview's review of the Nokia 808!
Or my own test of 808 vs Nikon D300 herehttp://www.pbase.com/anada/testing_808

Thank you Dean for your interesting article and really nice pictures.
I'm attending a couple of photo courses and last sunday I was shooting in the forests here near Helsinki, Finland. I had with me the backpack with D300 and lenses from 12 to 400 mm and also the tripod. In my pocket I had my new Nokia 808 Pureview with tripod adapter.
When I got home I noticed I had taken 29 pics with the D300 and 105 pics with the 808. And some of them were pics of the same objects and in all of them but one the 808 delivered better!
Full resolution with 808???????
HarrieD7000: If you don't need the long focal length, you be better off with the Canon. Be aware the 24-135 acts as a 38-216 compared to a 36 mm equivalent. The main reason I switched over to a DSLR was the shutter release time. Because no compact or bridge camera can compete on that with a DSLR.
But Nikon V1 is even better!
