Which is better? A Nikon D600 or D800? Mostly using it HANDHELD & with low light.

He's a very good photographer - but not right, beyond describing a valid preference

Hi DPreviewers,

Here's the latest review from Ming Thein:


Justified or not. Credible or not, I'm sure his efforts in sharing his experiences with the D800E would help the undecided on their decision.


And I think what I wrote before is even more applicable to his latest article:

"I do like Ming Thein's blog, but I think he's simply wrong in this case.

I suspect he's applying a personal aesthetic here, and describing it generally - as in, "I personally would rather see less resolution, where details are not even present, than see slight motion blur of those same details when viewing at 100%. The former pleases me more."

There's nothing wrong with having that opinion, but he's describing that personal aesthetic as the lower-res sensor being 'more forgiving', which I think is misleading."
