5Dmk3 vs D800E Part 1

Ok Guys
Here we go

I have been playing with both cameras for the last 5 days

Those 3 picture were taken with both camera...

With the D800 I used the 85mm 1.8 G
while the 5D had the 85mm 1.2

All the picture were edited in Lr 4.1 with minor small adjustments

and here the link for the Raw

General comments:

Image Quality: Bot camera deliver great images
The D800E files with no AA gives stellar results at low and high iso setting

Camera Body: Both feel really very solid

Auto Focus: Advantage 5D,the D800 was pretty slow in achieving and locking the focus

Metering: Slightly advantage for the 5D, the D800 has a bit of a tendency to over expose low contrast scenes and underexpose the high contrasting one

Auto Iso: Much better implemented in the D800

With the D800 I got a much better rate of sharp picture when I set the speed at 1/160

Screen: the D800 ha a horrible green cast hue
nothing to do with the file that delivers!

Silent Shooting in the 5D is amazing while on the D800 its just useless!

More comments and picture to come in the next days

Thanks for listening
