Always do right, this will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

Given its lack of an AA filter, I'd bet the D800E will be just as sharp on the per-pixel level, with twice the megapixels...

Are you sure....the hair looks terribly soft to me, and the one at iso 1600 is awful.

the first shot looks good . she is wearing contacts so those add some blur to the eyes directly .

only difference is really is that its a full frame image and has better iso ability than my 7d . and its lack of an aa filter means it is probly much sharper

I agree, they look bad. Especially given the glass and such as well (most 400mm f/2.8 II).

I would not be happy with those... lol

Well spotted on the contacts. Is that dandruff in the hair (in the hair line above her left eye)?

Sample #2 ( ISO1600) is soft. Probably set to standard noise reduction. I looked at it in DPP and Luminance NR was set to 7, same for Chrominance NR. Seems like the deep shadows has some posterization. I am not impressed by the samples. This is after all THE flagship, the best Canon can offer.

Did you notice file size? 18 MP image but the JPG's are in the 4 MB range. Highly compressed!

That ISO 1600 one looks really ugly, the D800 looks to have better ISO at 36mp?
Either someone has set the NR in camera far higher than it should be, or Canon and using similar ISO cheats that both Canon and Nikon do with their crop camera's just to get high DXO mark scores, but that sacrifice detail...

1600 looks pretty clean, but then again, it is JPG and no one knows how much (if any) processing has been done. The shadow/underexposed area looks pretty smooth.

I think Canon did a disservice to themselves by shooting at 1/660 and fan-blown hair on the model. Can still see motion blur on the subject and that throws off the image more for me than anything else.

Ultimately it'll come to whether Canon still have the silly banding noise when the shadows are pushed, IMO. 36mp with sufficient light (regardless of ISO setting) will always be impressive. Perhaps some very wealthy individual can get their hands on both cameras with similar/equal quality lenses to test out side-by-side comparisons, however improbable that may be.

D800 is a great camera/package, especially at the price point.
