Why would it kick Canons Ass... ?
I mean, it's only a camera.
Haven't we heard a thousand times that the photographer is the most important thing, then comes the glass, and on third place is the camera body.

Sales.

Remember when all the nikon guys jumped over to 5Dmk2......... now there will be another group of canon users jumping to D800

Heck if I had the cash I would. D800e and 14-24 ........ however I wouldnt sell my canon gear. Then again im a bit of a gear head :lol:
The AF on D800 is less than Canon 5D3. So not a sports camera which I need every now and then.

so far my favorite thread

D800 vs Leica S2

Yawn! ;)
Sorry, I don't have any need for a camera with nearly 40 Mp.
If I know I need to blow up a picture to 4 metres, I will take a panorama.

When I first started teaching my children how to swim, I put water-wings on them. I didn't just throw them in at the deep end!!

More I hear about the d800 the less I want it.

Poor 24pce, no 17, 14-24 has issues, poor live view, iffy autofocus etc.

The sensor is superb, sure, but a camera isnt just the sensor.


edit + bonus pic.

Ever owned or used a 5D2? :lol::lol:


There are some comparisons between the D800 and MF cameras on youtube.
The MF digitals kill it for skin tones and dynamic range.

The D800 is nice, but its really just another FF 35mm format SLR with lots of megapixels.
If mega pixels and image quality are that big a deal that you would change whole system, then you need to forget about the 35mm format and move onto something much better.

Same is said about PC vs mac they are just computers.

Still I like to keep up with changes and advances in technology. Just reading the D800 manual now.

Hey last time I mentioned Medium format I got flamed :)

Rob nice photo.

"The D800 exceeds in dynamic range at ISO 100. It is capable of 14.4EV"
http://www.btobey.com/​nikon/d800-review.php (external link)

The reality is no camera can do it all and do it all well. They all fall short in 1 area or more. 1Ds cameras were alway sh1t at high ISO where as 5D did well. (1Dsmk2 vs5d classic and 1Dsmk3 vs 5d2 ..5D produced better results).
ISO is the only issue I ever had with mine. However I dont shot in dark places and need fast shutter. I have had to shoot in poorly lit areas at school and at ISO 1600 it was grainy. However they were for web and school magazine so didnt matter.

In 4 years we have gone from 21mp to 36mp where to in 4 years from now 36mp cell phones .......
