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

As a Canon user, I normally don't post in the Nikon forums, and I apologize for the intrusion.

I'd like to thank Rick for providing the RAW for this comparison, and I though I'd post my results processing the 5D Mk III in Canon's DPP.

I processed the CR2 file, a little to my taste, and a little influenced by the look of the D800. I then output the file uprezing it to match the resolution of the D800, using DPP when it was converted to the JPG.

I will say my personal taste is not to oversharpen photos, which seems to be popular over on the Canon forums.

The dynamic range of the scene fell well withing the capabilites of both cameras. I did bring up the shadows slightly, and bring the highlights down slightly, which reduced the overall contrast of the photo.

Here's my result.

Again, I apologize for the intrusion.

I now return you, to your regularly scheduled Nikon programming.
