Re: Question for Legion regarding methodology

The advantage of high ISO per Masurov goes to D800 after utlising the ability of the 36mp sensor to downsize which reduces noise and retains a lot of sharpness.

So it seems in that regard you either say D800 has the advantage in the sensor department in all ways (as per DXo rating) or at the least say its a tie as 5D mark iii jpegs out of the camera being very clean may be all a lot will want out of the camera
and won't want to do post processing or downsizing.
