Re: will the D800E give you Pentax 645D type images ?


I really like the look of the images from the 645D.

Is the Nikon D800E expected to match this level of quality ???

No it wont. The sensor and lenses on the Pentax 645D are much larger and the lens projects a much large image therefore the lenses do not need to be as sharp to produce the same resolution as a 35mm camera with the same MP. Also because of the larger image the micro contrast and tonality is greater.

Below is a diagram showing the difference. The red rectangle and circle is 35mm and the green rectangle and circle is 645. As with engines, there is no substitute for inches.
