Image 2 is slightly sharper and a little less noise, therefore it must be D800E.

Both look very good. ISO probably is not a determining factor which brand to go with.

I agree with this assessment.

I like 1 better because the centre flower is better exposure to my eye the bottom photo (2) is a little darker.

Image 2 is slightly underexposed and dull and I like it less therefore think your right, must be D800E.

What bgbs said.

I'm inclined to say that image 1 is the Canon, but not because of ISO or overall IQ.

Judging by the visible noise, I'd say the top one was the D800e. But it doesn't really matter, since either image could have been shot with either camera. Shadow noise appears to be better on the top one, but that could be down to processing. Neither cameras strengths or weaknesses are really evident in these shots.

...that I would not choose one over the other.  That is, whatever the differences are, they are completely inconsequential in the appeal of the photo.

if these were shot at the same aperture/shutter speed(ev)my guess is image 1 is canon..from my experience with both brands..canons seems to have slightly more exposure than nikons at the same setting..one or the other is actually misleading on their iso ratings?..both images look great..they both look great.happy shooting

This proves beyond a doubt that if you down sample both to the same size then there isn't much difference.

#1 is Canon 5D3-- slightly more fine detail in #2 IMO and so it's Nikon D800-- though I too see a slight exposure difference.

I concur - both downsized files .

1 Canon

2 Nikon

Because 2 looks like it has slightly more depth of field, and assuming you didn't resize the images differently, you would have had to use either a wider lens, or stand further back, to maintain the same image area with the increased megapixels of the D800. Either of those would have increased the depth of field.

REVEAL TIME (big surprise!)
4

first one is Canon 5d mark III - 50L 2.8 iso6400..NR/sharpening etc off - both cameras identical in settings

second is: ..............wait for it................................CANON 40D......YES CANON 40D - 35L 2.8 iso1600 (its max!!!) shot at 1600 pushed 2 stops in PP. I am sure most are familiar with ISO pushing technic, so i wont get into that.

NoiseNinja was used at the exact same settings on both. and USM equally the same on CS6.

40D Raw looked a bit more grainy after being pushed 2 full stops in PP. But after Ninja on same setting used on 5dmk3, things looked about identical. Strange but true. Framing was about the same due to crop factor.

2006-7 mid-consumer-whatever-u want to call it- camera replaced by several generations...payed $200 used with high shutter count VS new $3500 full frame camera. Shot at 2.8 since my 35/50 is identical at 2.8!

I've shot weddings with a 40D as my main camera for years, its capable. Before someone says straight out of camera/straight jpeg is cleaner. Sure but not by a mile, and only at 100 percent you will see some differences. but if you payed money on either camera, with todays software available and you do not editing? thats a waste of any dslr/money.....even on one that doesn't even do video or even able to focus in live view (40D)

How can it possibly matter with these images?

Look, the D800's advantage is very high resolution if the lens and photographic technique are perfect and if you've made a humongous print or done a very severe crop.  Absent those conditions, and in good light, I might not even be able to tell the difference between a 700D and a 5D3, especially on my computer screen.  So this is a fun game but I'm not sure it means anything.
