i agree. it's pretty sad on here when people are praising a camera for having less resolution and clarity in the images(is that all we can say good about this camera?)Here are 100% crops taken with both the Nikon D600 and Canon 6D using 135mm & 85mm portrait lenses @ f3.2Hmm, Nikon looks crisper and cleaner to my eye between these two images
It's definitely sharper, but a tad less flattering too - just look at the tiny blonde hairs at the bridge of the nose and above the upper lip too, sort of reminiscent of initial criticisms of the D800
Different tastes, I guess. I prefer seeing those tiny hairs rather than the smudgy look of the Canon image because when doing macro work, I want to see those tiny hairs on an insect. I can always smooth out skin in PP, but for when I want the detail it needs to be there first place since I can't manufacture it in PP. Actually the Canon images looks like a rather amateurish PP job like I used to do when first learning photoshop Just my $.02
There is no doubt the Nikon sample is much cleaner and crisper than the Canon which is not nearly as sharp and definitely a little smudgy. I am in China so it's a little more difficult for me than in the US, but tomorrow I will be ordering a D600 and 24-70.
I really wanted to like the 5DIII and 6D, but alas, both are overpriced and less of what i'm looking for than the Nikon offerings. I will probably sell my 550D, 5DC, 24-105 and Sigma 50mm soon(most sad about saying goodbye to the Sigma, the thing has amazing bokah!)
