LOL? They are not hard sharpen for print etc.

They certainly are sharpened though.

I have no doubt that there will be more detail resolved in the D800 image. And I rather think that your example shows it anyway - although both images (in the second set) look pretty awful due to oversharpening. No offense intended.

Nevermind. I'd just find the comparison a whole lot more useful if the images had not been 'manipulated'. ie. with the sharpening slider set to zero on both files. Any chance of that?

my dear man , do you think that is over sharpening for a glossy magazine?

If you intended to print what you have presented here as the whole image - yes.

take a look at the jaggies in comparison

Sure - they show the inability of both sensors to render the actual scene detail.

Why not just show both the 100% crops unsharpened?

we have different views what is over sharpening and to what purpose.

here are crops and the difference between d800 and 5dmk2

and 5dmk2 can not reproduce the Peab sign
