Re: Inital comparison D3x - D3 - P45+ at base ISO

Thanks Jost for doing this.

The zoom vs prime difference has been pointed out already, but there's another factor here. The 24-70 really isn't a very good lens at 24mm. This looks to be that wide, and IIRC the 35mm on the P45 is around 21mm equivalent, though Jost didn't say say. Can you let us know? My copy of the 24-70 just bites at 24 and many others have noted this too.

While this wouldn't affect the D3 to D3x comps, I suspect that using a better lens at whatever wide FL this was shot at (14-24 or Ziess 25mm, etc) would yeild a closer comparison to the p45+ (acknowledging of course that the p45+ is always going to be clearer, cleaner, and more detailed).

Just my .02.
