I actually just noticed the data-- showing f9.5 on the Leica-- and of course the lens was firmly set at f8.

The D3x was properly focused, and it is the same lens, same f stop as the D800E, so no DOF issues.

The reason I mentioned DOF or focussing issues is because the D3X crop of the brick building, the bricks look softer than the Leica and D800E near the two bottom windows, and it doesn't seem like in theory they should be.

Anyway, with such small crops it's really hard to tell much, except for the obvious. On of the best features of DPR gallery software is the ability to zoom in more X's on consecutive clicks. Anyway....Cheers.
