Rick, I'll have to get pictures tomorrow when the light is better. I'll get them up in the afternoon.

Thanks Rick_reno. There's no doubt in the D800's outstanding DR. How far can you push the shadows before things start looking funky? 2 or 3 stops?

If I choose to go with the D800 over the 5D3, it will be only because of the better DR.

More than that, heh. They do get noisier and noisier the farther you push them, but the noise is basically the same as if you'd shot at the higher ISO to begin with (very slightly worse, but not a ton).

So, if you shot at ISO 100 and pushed it 3 stops, the noise would be basically the same as if you'd just chosen ISO 800. A 5 stop push will look a little worse than if you'd just chosen ISO 3200 in the camera.

In my opinion, a 2 or 3 stop push looks great (might apply a tiny bit of noise reduction). So, that's the equivalent of if you'd pushed the shadows of the ISO 100 shot to ISO 400 or 800. A 4-5 stop push looks good as well (the equiv of pushing the 100 shot to 1600 or 3200). However, at that point you'd want to apply some chroma NR and a little luma NR to those areas. I think the D800 does good to 3200. Above that, it starts to deteriorate. You can go crazy and push a super dark dark iso 100 shot like 9 stops and make a file that might look okay at web size, but I wouldn't call that acceptable quality. =p

The big differences from Canon are the lack of pattern noise and that color information and detail stays intact.

My D800 is off to Nikon to have them fix the auto focus, wish me luck.

Mine is on it's second tour of duty at Melville Service Center.
:oops:
The first time I sent the unit for repair at Melville Service Center it was a Category B1 repair (moderate repair, minor parts replaced).

Now on it's second repair it is a category B2 repair (moderate repair, major parts replaced).

Here are some really poor iPhone photos of the battery grip on the camera. I have pictures of the grip at home. They're a little better, but not by much. :lol:

Nice shot, Corey.

Here are the other picture of the grip. The last one was taken with a different lens on a different day, and I didn't feel like doing any editing to the photos.

It's very solid. I can't compress it if I squeeze it pretty firmly. It has a metal plate in the tripod mount that looks nice and sturdy. It holds an EN-EL15 or 8 AA batteries. The rubber feels very similar to the one on the camera. For $59, I don't think you can beat it.

I'm green with envy over your setup though. I will be purchasing both of those lenses at some point, but for now I must drool over yours. :D

^Thanks. :) I'm planning to add more lenses but, the Zeiss variant. I was about to pick up the Zeiss 15 2.8 ZF but, an unexpected expense came along. :)

Nice grip, I'll probably go with Nikon, assuming I want to use the L bracket on it.

Julian - tell me what that Lee gear is? Looks like the mythical SW150 from Lee for the 14-24. I think I could use one of those. What's that in the 2nd photo??
