I'm blown. The D600 is pretty close to the D4. D800 looks weak compared to D600.

Scratching my head. Nikon puts a better sensor in a worse body compared to the D800. Kinda weird logic in some way.

Two things

Judging by the file-sizes those are not similarly sized. The D800 should be downsized (and the D4 up sized). This does make a difference.

Higher ISO capability does not equal better sensor, just because that's all we talk about in dpr (and how sharp a lens is). There are several other aspects to consider.

That said, I believe 36Mpx is a laugh and serves very little, if any, purpose for the wast majority of people.
