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

Thanks - even though they are quite small - I find them more useful.

And it's clear to see the difference. Not great - but certainly there.

BTW - re sharpening ..

I understand that the D800 will require a different amount of sharpening to the 5D3. I'm familiar with this, and that's why I found it useful to see the unsharpened images. It's a better indication of what one would start with off the camera.

Cheers - and no offense intended. I appreciate you taking the time to post them.

you can look at the first pictues and halos etc, they are not over sharped and go to glossy print magazine, they need even more sharpening, do not confuse the results with what you se on the monitor or here with a print results.

the next pictures are sharpening as Dpreview 100 0,6 0  and  to se them on a monitor

there a bit more details in d800 and if the file is down sized to 5dmk2, 3 the results from d800 is cleaner surface , less jaggies  etc.
