First of all, you proved to be a very good photographer. Your conclusion is however a bit missleading. There are many aspects where D800E is much better than D300 and few where D300 keeps the advantage. Size, price, speed i.e.

You are comparing two hammers that can fix the nail. For this particular nail - your waterfall shot and web sized output, they might be equally effective. But there are many situations, where one or the other will show its advantage.

Therefore I do not understand the meaning and tone of your OP. Why it should upset me?

Let's see if we can have the same output at billboard size print, will the DR if shadows are needed to be pushed up, be the same, will I be able if needed, to crop out the same amount of the image etc. Can I get in studio the same shallow DOF for portrait when the space is limitation?

Different tools for different jobs. But for many jobs any can be used. It's that simple. No reason for anyone to feel upset IMO.

I didn't say it would upset YOU...just SOME of you.

Most of your other points were covered in my OP.


I still don't see the reason for a title like that. You showed one landscape comparison and make it as a thing that can "upset some of you". Why it should?

Go to the specific situation where the differences (benefits) can be shown either way and title it - "This might enlighten some of you". That could make some sense.
