Canon EOS 7D vs. Nikon D300S

Canon EOS 7D
Nikon D300S
6.1MB JPEG (5184 x 3456)
4.6MB JPEG (4672 x 3104)

Using the 'equalized' ACR processing the Nikon probably gains a tad more extra detail at pixel-level compared to the JPEG output but the 7D more than makes up for this by its higher nominal resolution. When shooting in RAW both cameras offer superb image detail.
