In all honesty the resolution of the D800 hasn't really blown me away, both it and the 5DII seem to be lens and skill limited a majority of the time. I print most of my stuff in the 20x30 to 30 x 40 range and the difference in resolution between the two camera's just isn't noticeable. However, the difference in color tone and range is clear as day, which really surprised me because I loved my 5ds color rendition.

If Canon does release a high MP camera I will be shocked if it can hold a candle to what Sony and Nikon have created with this beast of a sensor. We shall see though. I would love to see a solid high MP high dynamic range camera to attach a 17mm TS to.

Skill limited I can understand, but lens limitations will not be an issue for long. Yes its going to be expensive, but these higher mp sensors have triggered a massive redesign programme for all the major players.

CR has a note about a high mp Canon this morning. No details, but if Nikon lead, then Canon are bound to follow. They probably buy Nikons, strip and copy them. It is accepted business practise after all.

As an ex Sony employee I can tell you thats exactly what manufacturers do. They had a workshop full of the competitions product, which were tested, stripped and analysed to check out what each were doing and how they were doing it.
I have posted in the past about how Sony will improve on what others invent. It's what they excel in. I just wish they would spend some time on a lens range. I'm looking forward to the A99..........

OOOOPS - Sorry forgot to add, GREAT images and examples of what the competition is up to. Thanks for taking the time to show us. :D

That's awesome, and great post work. Did you do anything special, or just the basic sliders?

Incredible images
I am also interested in knowing this.

Your image editing skills really allow you to take advantage of the D800. I've really been putting in a lot of effort to learn how to PP images better.

I think that is one of the things that has really drawn me to the D800. If you botch an exposure, it's not as big of a deal as you can recover quite a bit. Of course I still try to get the proper exposure, but it sure is nice to know I can clean up my screw ups.

The thing is that sometimes there isn't a prefer exposure available naturally, the D800 allows me to find that exposure in post. People make it seem like post processing an image is a cop out at times, but the reality is that I am doing things in post that would never be possible in camera. With my previous gear I never felt like I was capturing images that had never been captured before, with the D800 I know I am capturing things never even possible before and it has nothing to do with 36mp, and everything to do with the way sony and nikon developed this sensor.

Now that I see those before images... I'm convinced I can do some good landscape shots now! Inspiring work :D

Joergeske, I have read the 800 files slow down your computer, care to elaborate on that.

Makes sense too, you're comparing about a 30-40mb raw file vs. a 10 or even 20mb file, so it need to read more data and it a much larger file.

The "slow down" from file size is essentially non existent unless you are using hardware from 8-10 years ago or a really cheap computer. When I process 800mb or 1.2gb files (film scans) there is an experience of waiting on my machine but the difference between 22mp and 36mp is relatively non existent.

It could alsobe if your computer has a bunch of images on it to start with as well, I guess otherwise you would be correct.

If you are having disk access issues do a disk defragmentation on the drive. As huge volumes of files fill a disk the write efficiency deteriorates as it takes longer to find available clusters and they generally become disconnected (non sequential) which results in longer seek times since the file may actually exist in a wide variety of locations. A disk defrag will optimize file access by rearranging the file mapping on disk.

The RAW files from the D800 are larger than 30-40mb, more like 60-70mb from the couple of people I know who have the camera.

BTW, great photos OP. I will never use only brand exclusively, but you've got me thinking my next purchase could be a D800

I was being modest with my estimation :lol:

My files are running 200mb +- uncompressed 16 bit.

Wow.. :eek:

Lossless compressed are around 42mb in 16bit. Jetcode, I was under the impression that uncompressed were only 74mb or so, SOOC? I've only shot using lossless compressed so far.
