Interesting comparison. For 1/3 the price the Nikon is a bargain. Sort of like a Porsche Cayman against a Ferrari 458. For 95% of the time, the Cayman is just as good. Bottom line as said by the photographer, " clients don't want us showing up with the same camera they have!". Ego ( and money ) drives everything.

P.S. I use to shoot 90% of the time with Hasselblads.

What I would have liked to have seen, since the Nikon is so strong with shadow noise and detail, is to underexpose the Nikon, and see how the highlights pull back. Yes, when you overexpose it blows out. At some point, all things do, digital or film. But why not take advantage of the Nikon's strengths to overcome that very minor shortcoming? Still, overall, the D800 showed very well.

And, like the shooter admitted, they need to have "bigger and more expensive" cameras than the hobbyists that show up at shoots.

No Signature.

Hobbyists don't show up when you are shooting professional assignments!

I was just parroting the shooter's comments from the video. His words, not mine.
