COMPARISON: D3 samples to 1D Mk III

I couldn't resist doing this.

I selected a similar subject sample (Nikkor 17-35/2.8) and set up my Mk III to match the exposure and white balance as closely as I could, using halogen lighting. Aperture and shutter speed settings were similar, NR off, in-camera JPEG. All samples are at 100% res.

The Mk III series only goes to ISO 6400, but that's far enough to get some idea of how the cameras compare.

Assuming the D3 samples are accurate, we can now see how the D3 stands up to the Mk III. I've formed an opinion of the relative performance, but I'm not saying. I'll let you study the images and reach your own conclusions. Best surfaces for comparison are the rubber grips and the name plates; you will need to scroll to the far right to see the name plate in the Mk III images.
