Re: Nikon D800E or Canon 5d Mark 3 ?!

Nikon Jpegs & Raw are better by a good stretch due to higher DR and less NR applied.

My 7D jpeg shadow and high light recover are very limited by noise and highlight ceiling. Nikon files are look better even before PP.

We really don't know if 5D outsells D800/e by 8 times. I was in market recently and went for D800e.

For wedding some prefer the smaller files and very quiet shutter noise.

Skin tone is subjective and varies amongst cameras & brands. The notion that Canon skin tone is better is driven mostly by the canon fans. Some believes that Fuji's is the best. It boils down to the photographers post processing skills for most part.
