Re: Poll: D800E vs. 5D mk III w/ Zeiss 2/35mm ZF

Thanks for posting the D800 and 5DIII raw images. I have been looking for a good way to compare the two cameras. I was very close in getting a D800E until some of the problems surfaced and decided to wait for a while.

I processed both files through Capture One Pro 7. After removing the Chromatic Aberrations and peaking the contrast a bit I found that although the D800E did have a slightly sharper image, the difference between the two was less than what I was expecting. I have read that the D800’s Exmor sensor has greater dynamic range but that was not tested in this scene. The Zeiss lens performed very well with both cameras.

I guess I'll hang on to my 5DII a little longer.
