On article Just Posted: In-depth Nikon D800 review (541 comments in total)

Reviewers tend to say the D800 is very good for shooting landscapes, but what I've seen from the samples is that at f:11 diffraction is very visible and affects crispness, resolution and sharpness. I can't see the point of shooting at 36 Mp for most landscape professionals and amateurs if you can't reach f:11, to enhance depth of field.
For what concerns Dynamic range, I see the depth of D800's shadows and it is really amazing, but mostly produces flat and uncontrasty images (in my experience I often tend to "close" the shadows instead of opening them), instead the Dinamic range of the 5DmkIII tends to better cover highlights, which is quite important in shooting landscapes and overcontrasted images (mostly common in real life conditions, excluding studio shots).
From My point of view 5DMkIII is the clear winner here, for evey kind of shooting condition, except Studio shots, in which D800 is the real King (at low f/stops).
Nice job Nikon, Very good job Canon!

Very good job Canon!
Nice job Nikon!

I have read carefully the review, and I've seen the jpeg and raw samples at different sensitivities... Reviewers tend to say the D800 is very good for shooting landscapes, but what I've seen from the samples is that at f:11 diffraction is very visible and affects crispness, resolution and sharpness (why resolution charts are shot at 4,5? Is it a correct aperture for most landscape shooters?) . I can't see the point of shooting at 36 Mp for most landscape professionals and amateurs if you can't reach f:11, to enhance depth of field.

Did Canon realize we are in the middle of a very bad economic crisis, and companies are trying not to loose clients not increasing prices of goods? International companies are shaking out and this is most true for Japanese firms which have passed throught a very bad year. But maybe they know much better than me what they're doing...

alberliber: sorry I couldn't edit the mistakes in my precedent post: here it is:

I used to shoot with Canon 7d, a wonderful body, around a not-so-bad sensor... now Canon has gone out with 5d Mk III a Great Sensor, inside a Great Body...seems right for me, my 5D mk I and my 60 D (better sensor than the 7d for me with a fantastic screen), are waiting for the price to drop. It's really interesting how people complain! 6.0 frame rate bad?, the difference in 3 seconds against 6,9 is that you will miss less than 3 shots...in 21 (13,04% different). The point for me is: will those 18 shoots, be fine and sharp? If so I won't miss the extra 2,7 left! If I needed more frame rate I'd go 1dX (up to 14 f/s and 12 with AF, with a difference against Nikon D4 of 12 shoots after 3 seconds (that's 28,57% different!).
Please continue posting, (I am really amused) and ask yourselves: what's the difference in resolution between 36 Mp and 22 Mp? How bigger can be the prints (not considering interpolation)?

How bold: "my old D70 look better pictures at ISO 100'.... Are you Ferdinando Scianna?
Some statememts really are beyond common sense. Have you seen the pictures around the web? Still I haven't seen raw files, but jpeg are much better than what I shoot today!

Jump to D800?

21,7% less resolution in widht
21,8% less resolution in heigh
Much better pixel per count quality?
Much better noise performance?

Better Frame rate and more ergonomic

Certainly it will not empty disk space after a week-end shoot, nor will require hours in elaborating raw files!

Reading all the sheets, for me Canon wins (and I am happy 'cause for me changing all my expensive L lenses would have been vvvvveeeeeeery expensive!)

In reply to:

NigelMoore: Personally, I would have preferred two CF slots, as has finally been introduced to the 1D range, instead of CF/SD. I don't see the point of that. And I'm amused to see the Direct Print button hasn't been retired (although at least it's multi-function).

If I cannot afford/justify the 1D-X I will at least be ditching my 40D and going FF this year. :)

the sd slot is for IPAD users ;-)
