Lensrentals.com tests the D800 in terms of resolution:


In order to get better resolution on the D800 than the 5D3 you need to:

1) print big

My 40x60 prints will thank me

2) have the latest lenses

My 14-24 will finally by on a native camera and really test its stellar MTF

3) do not shoot wide open

Dont shoot lower than f5.6/8 as a landscaper

I do not qualify for any of those categories. For my uses, the 5D3 will achieve equal performance to the D800 in terms of resolution.

Happy that the 5d3 satisfies you. For me I need a meaningful resolution upgrade before I pull the trigger.
