Re: OP is right. There are no Canon Trolls in the Nikon Forums

You are working real hard but sadly (for you) clients don't pay for test data and galleries don't hang DxO plots and differences of 1 to 2 dB are not noticeable.

This paragraph shows your complete lack of understanding of the practical value of these measurements or that you are in denial.

1, Clients do know the difference, especially when it comes to resolution, maybe not in the 500 dollar per wedding market. one of my close pro friend owns a studio with 3 full time photographers, he has just made the switch, from 1Ds3 to D800, selling all his 10 L lenses. in wedding business there are always a large number of good shots not perfectly framed, often needs horizon straightened or distracting elements cropped. resolution always suffer. it is not uncommon to lose 20-50% resolution after cropping.

2, sports score basically means that provided they use similarly spec-ed lens, D800's can produce images at shutter speeds around 1/3 faster than 5D3 (just like IR's examples, except 5D3 has 2/3 longer SS), that means much less chance motion blur for moving subjects and less chance of camera shake blur for static subjects.

So... check back in when you can show some actual photographs instead of a bunch of meaningless numerical comparisons.

plenty of them already exist and we are only 1 month in. if you cant see them by now you will never be able to see them.

If you think you can tell any difference between these things from a SNR perspective at 3200, have at it.

no one is talking about iso 3200. how many iso 3200 do you have your last 1,000 keepers?

The only place where the d800 shines is at ISO=100. If you are stiff for DR that is the only place where it makes sense to use it (well the most since anyway).

you can keep saying it but it doesnt make it true.
